    People on my side have been arguing for years that the 2004 election was hacked because the election protection lines got something like 88 reports of "flips" from Kerry to Bush, and fewer than 10 in the reverse direction. I think that argument fails on multiple grounds. If ever an election is stolen through hacking, I don't expect the hack to announce itself to voters, although of course it is possible.

    There do appear to be a fair number of lousy voting machine touchscreens.

      there's diary now about someone claiming deliberate vote flipping, but at least Mama checked the sample ballot and caught the error.

      •  apparently different scenario, definitely possible (1+ / 0-)

        Without having a video camera running -- which I wouldn't recommend! -- there's no way to know whether the vote initially showed up as Obama and flipped to Romney on the review screen (which, of course, should never happen), or whether it initially showed up as Romney and she didn't notice until the review screen.

        I always hedge my bets because I know from personal experience that people, including me, don't always know what we saw.

        Either way, gotta check the review screen -- and, if there is a paper trail, gotta check that, too.

        Link to that diary in case it helps anyone else.
