Greensboro Guilford County votes default to Obama, Romney vote override, Voting machine calibration problem?, Board of Elections Director George Gilbert recurring problem
“Isn’t it necessary to eliminate these parties, and isn’t it time to put an end to their useless activity?”…Joseph Goebbels, July 31, 1932 Reichstag elections
“The past is whatever the records and the memories agree upon.
And since the party is in full control of all records, and in
equally full control of the minds of it’s members, it follows
that the past is whatever the party chooses to make it. Six
means eighteen, two plus two equals five, war is peace,
freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength.”…George Orwell, “1984”

“Guilford Co. voters say ballot cast for Romney came up Obama on machine”
“GREENSBORO, N.C. –The Presidential election is just around the corner and voting issues have already become a problem in Guilford County.
On Monday, several voters complained that their electronic ballot machine cast the wrong vote. All the complaints were made by people who voted at the Bur-Mil Park polling location.
One of the voters, Sher Coromalis, says she cast her ballot for Governor Mitt Romney, but every time she entered her vote it defaulted to President Obama.
“I was so upset that this could happen,” said Coromalis.
Guilford County Board of Elections Director George Gilbert says the problem arises every election. It can be resolved after the machine is re-calibrated by poll workers.
“It’s not a conspiracy it’s just a machine that needs to be corrected,” Gilbert said.
After the third try, Coromalis says she was able to get her vote counted for Gov. Romney but was still annoyed.
“I should have just mailed it in,” Coromalis said.
Elections officials say the machines have been fixed as of Tuesday, and no problems have been reported since.
Early Voting ends November 3.”
