The election theft is already starting

A friend posted a link to this article on my Naomi Wolf interview post as a comment last night.

WINFIELD, W.Va. -- Three Putnam County voters say electronic voting machines changed their votes from Democrats to Republicans when they cast early ballots last week.

This is the second West Virginia county where voters have reported this problem. Last week, three voters in Jackson County told The Charleston Gazette their electronic vote for "Barack Obama" kept flipping to "John McCain".

In both counties, Republicans are responsible for overseeing elections. Both county clerks said the problem is isolated.

A couple of points of advice for voters voting on electronic machines:

1) Take a digital camera or camcorder into the voting booth and record what happens when you vote.

2) Vote slowly and deliberately. Touchscreens do have lag times sometimes. Don't cause the problem yourself by rushing through the process.

And visit Vote411.org and know your rights. Don't let yourself be "caged" or turned away at the polls.
