Texas election officials report complaints from voters who say machines flipped votes

 

 

Texas voters: Take your time when casting ballots.

 

This advice comes as state election officials receive complaints across the state from early voters casting straight tickets on Hart eSlate machines who believe the machines changed their votes.

 

Two complaints, reported through a third party, have been made in Tarrant County, said Heider Garcia, elections administrator.

 

“We have ... tested everything,” he said. “We don’t have any indication that there’s a technical issue.”

 

The Texas Secretary of State’s Office has issued a statement about the issue.

 

“As a reminder, voters should always carefully check their review screen before casting their ballots,” states the advisory issued by Keith Ingram, director of elections with the Texas Secretary of State’s office. “If a voter has any problems, they should notify a poll worker immediately so the issues can be addressed and reported.”

 

This comes as a near record number of early voters are heading to the polls, just as they did during the 2016 presidential election. Similar concerns were reported during the 2016 presidential election.

 

Election officials ask Texas voters to slow down and be careful when choosing the candidates they want to receive their votes.

 

“There’s no rush,” Garcia said. “If you’ve been in line 30 minutes to vote, take 30 extra seconds to review the ballot before you cast it.”

 

Early voting began Monday and runs through Nov. 2.

Follow the advice, take your time when casting votes. Watch what the machine is doing.

 

Follow the example, if the machine flips your vote call an election judge, take that machine out of service, and use another machine.
