Voters in Arlington and Amarillo complained that when they highlighted the box to select Trump/Pence, it switched to Clinton/Kaine.
Now numerous other Texans have gone public on social media to report similar problems.
However, election officials in Texas are still denying that there is a problem.
“Typically, we’ve found it’s voter error with the equipment,” Frank Phillips, Tarrant County’s election administrator, told WFAA. “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.”
Are all these examples just voters making mistakes or inaccurately reporting what happened? It is just not likely that there could be that many operator errors. It is more likely that there is a real problem with electronic voting machines in Texas.
