‘I Tried to Vote for a Republican and the Machine Registered a Vote for a Democrat’Posted: October 22, 2014
CHICAGO — Paul Miller reports: Early Voting in Illinois got off to its typical start Monday, as votes being cast for Republican candidates were transformed into votes for Democrats.
Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan had trouble voting for himself on Monday when early voting started in Illinois.
“I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent.”
“You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”
The conservative website Illinois Review reported that “While using a touch screen voting machine in Schaumburg, Moynihan voted for several races on the ballot, only to find that whenever he voted for a Republican candidate, the machine registered the vote for a Democrat in the same race.
Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan went to vote Monday at the Schaumburg Public Library.
