Miscalibrated: See A Voting Machine Change A Vote for Obama to Romney

Making the online rounds is a video from a Pennsylvania voter who tried to vote for Obama but saw the voting machine register for Romney instead -  even after the guy, a software developer, went into "troubleshoot mode." He turned to hapless election vounteers who responded that "everything will be OK." If you're voting and you're worried it won't be, an expert suggests what to do - and another notes voting shouldn't have to be so hard. That busted machine has reportedly been removed, but with similar stories coming in from several other states we can't help but wonder how many more are out there...?
