Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has been saying lately that the system is rigged against Republican candidates.
Computer experts have demonstrated how easy it is to rig an election within minutes by hacking into voting machines.
Is it now coming to pass? Early voters in various Texas districts — including Dallas, Collin and Tarrant counties — believe it is.
Voters are reporting that when they vote for the Trump/Pence ticket, their selection is mysteriously changed to the Hillary Clinton-Tim Kaine ticket, according to the Dallas News.
In addition, voters who vote straight Republican reportedly find that although their down-ballot selections remain in the GOP column, the presidential choice goes to Clinton.
On Monday Arlington, Texas resident Shandy Clark got the word out on her Facebook page, and asked that everyone remain alert when casting their votes.
Her post went viral and was shared 192,000 times so far.
Clark’s allegation was backed up by one from Canyon, Texas resident Lisa Houlette, who posted to her own Facebook page:
That post also went viral with over 8,000 shares.
Garland, Texas City Councilman Stephen Stanley reported a similar instance that was related to him Tuesday morning by another voter. The Dallas News reported:
[Stanley] said around noon a woman came out of the library and told him she had tried to vote straight ticket Republican but the machine said she had voted straight Democrat.
The woman told him a poll worker apologized that the machine wasn’t working and instructed her to use another one.
Stanley said he was worried about people who didn’t double-check their ballots.
He said that his concern was over those voters who didn’t take the time to check their votes.
“My question is how many other people didn’t know,” Stanley said.
Nonetheless, election officials are pointing the finger at voting error.
Dallas County elections administrator Toni Pippins-Poole said that although she had heard second-hand accounts of malfunction machines, no one has lodged an unofficial complaint.
“It could be voter error or it could be that the machine needs to be recalibrated,” Pippins-Poole said.
Tarrant County election administrator Frank Phillips told WFAA-TV that instances of changed votes can more-than-likely be traced to the voter.

“Typically, we’ve found it’s voter error with the equipment,” Phillips said. “Sometimes they vote straight party and then click on other candidates … or do something with the wheel.
“There is not an issue with the equipment.”
Tell that to Clark and Houlette.
