Some ES&S iVotronic DREs used yesterday in Saline Co. Kansas were found to be flipping votes. When asked about the incident the county clerk blamed it on a calibration problem caused during the shipping process from storage to the precincts. Naturally the clerk also minimized the problem by claiming that the chances were slim that any voters vote was incorrectly recorded. He disingenuously tried to claim that the review screen and vvpat printer kept that from happening. Of course, there is no evidence that most voters even look at the review screen before touching the “Vote” button.

Also 407 votes cast on a Premier op-scan in one St. Clair Co Illinois precinct were nearly not counted after the machine failed to have its vote totals tabulated....
