    I read and heard about some Republican/teabagger voter irregularities in VA and nationally that are setting up legal challenges in the coming days. (I can’t find the links right now)

    Essentially, the Republican voters are claiming vote flipping on electronic machines. They are saying they voted Republican and their paper tape showed Democratic. But, for some reason they are “smart enough” to know not to finalize the vote, but to call over an election judge to point out what happened, then revote for their chosen one.  Smells bad. I doubt the average citizen would even begin to know how to run the tape before completing the vote!  But, that is how some precincts and districts will be challenged.  Having the disputed tape in hand will be their “evidence” that they really did not actually click on the Democratic candidate, but that the machine flipped their vote.

    The funniest was a week or so ago from Texas where a R was complaining that the machine flipped votes from Republican to Green party.  Now that is one screwed up machine. From other previous election investigations the machines were programmed to flip Dem to Repub.  I guess someone forgot to pay the full price of the software.
