The Charleston Gazette - West Virginia News and Sports - News - Some early W.Va. voters angry over switched votes*

"Virginia Matheney and Calvin Thomas said touch-screen machines in the county clerk's office in Ripley kept switching their votes from Democratic to Republican candidates. "When I touched the screen for Barack Obama, the check mark moved from his box to the box indicating a vote for John McCain," said Matheney, who lives in Kenna."

Is anyone else worried that the voting machines, with no paper trail, could be changing votes and could result in a stolen election?

It's nothing more then machine failure at this point. (I thought all the voting machines had to have a paper trail, but even if there was one, it wouldn't be noticed as the failure was before the vote was cast, and the paper trail only gets whats submitted)

I saw it. Keep posting. Strange thing is that so many are willing to ignore this if it's done in the name of the GOP.

It's the McCain campaign, not McCain himself.

Is it too late to get him off the ticket? About the only chance the GOP will have!

NOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Republicans have been crying about this for months now, and you Dems have completely ignored us for screaming foul. Called us whiny for even mentioning that some black communities are registered at over 100%

Now that the show is on the other foot, your anger intensifies.

I could care less. I hope there is MASSIVE voter fraud in tons of states just to p!$$ you liberals off. And I hope the government does NOTHING about it, just to make you even more angry. I am so sick of the theory of "until it hurts a Democrat's chance, it is not a problem."

So, in conclusion, call it what you want, but I dont care. You have ignored us for months, I could give a dam*n how you feel now.

I'm EXTREMELY concerned about this. This is the only way that McCain could win and sadly, he may with election fraud.
Hopefully Obama won't sit down and take it and this time around, unlike 2000 and 2004, it would have to be extreme, for them to get away with it.
