Republican or DemocratDoes “auto-fill” drive you as nuts as it does me? It fills in what it thinks, but often isn’t, what I want to write. If you think that’s bad, try “auto-vote,” coming to a voting machine near you.

PolitiChicks.tv confirmed that some voter machines in Las Vegas are auto-voting “Obama” whether he’s your choice or not.

According to one of their sources:

“Yesterday I went to an early voting site at Centennial Center in Las Vegas, NV. I went with my 19 year old son who was a first-time voter. I went to an open machine and inserted my card.”

So far, so good. The source continues, “When the selections came up, all of the candidate pairings were listed and I touched the box for Romney/Ryan. The checkmark appeared next to President Obama’s name. I touched the check mark removing it and touched the box next to Romney’s name again. Again, the checkmark appeared next to Obama.”

The source then called for an observer and the ritual was repeated, with the exact same results.

At the third attempt, the source “touched the checkmark, again removing it from Obama’s name and selected Romney. The checkmark appeared next to Romney. I double-checked the paper ballot to ensure that Romney was indeed selected and cast my ballot.”

The source concludes, “I didn’t make a fuss but have called our local election department only to get recordings. I also wrote an email to the Clark County Election Department about the incident. My son said that he had no issues casting his ballot.”
