You'd like them stopped wouldn't you?

I feel much better having voted on a paper ballot. These Diebold touch machines are insidious, even if these issues are really as innocuous as bad calibrations. Anyway, if the machines were rigged, you'd not see any issue on the screen, the vote would simply be changed internally. Anyone knows that.

All voting machines should use paper ballots. Even the old mechanical ones of old lost votes. It was considered an acceptable price to pay for convenience.
