URGENT: Diebold Electronic Machines Malfunction, Vote for Other Candidate

(Decatur) After one hour of voting, the McKinney campaign has received numerous calls that the voting machines are malfunctioning.  Voters casting votes for McKinney are reportedly having their votes switched by the machines for Hank Johnson. This is not a new problem with Diebold machines.  Lawyers for the campaign have been alerted and said that if this situation is not corrected, Cynthia McKinney for Congress will be forced to take additional measures.

Don't say nobody warned you.

Just don't do it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Rove has 2006 in the bag unless there are a million people marching in EVERY capital of every state still using Diebold machines. The only people comfortable with these machines are the folks manipulating the vote and completing their theft of our democracy from us. Come on, Kossacks, don't you see this is the end game Rove is busy concealing with the debacle in Iraq, the whole terror war crapola, the massive drawdown of our national treasury, incredible corruption at every level of political representation? The people we most want to nail are openly behaving the way they are because they feel secure behind the electronic wall of surveillance, fake "voting machines" and police state intimidation. It's the best of all possible worlds for organized crime, and the cockroaches inhabit every dark corner of American politics.

    Awaken ye, or forevermore sleep....

    "How did we steal 2000, 2002, 2004 and 2006? We controlled the voting machines, and they didn't pay attention until too late." --Rove
