Voting Machine Switching Votes From Republican To Democrat

(Moline, IL) -- Republicans say the digital voting machine at the Moline Public Library is switching votes. A YouTube video shows someone trying to vote for Republican state senate candidate Neil Anderson, but an X appears in the box next to Democrat Mike Jacobs' name. The same thing happens when the voter tries to select Republican Bobby Schilling over Democrat Cheri Bustos. Elections officials have said that there's nothing wrong with the machines and if you look closely at the video, it does appear that the voter's finger was fairly close to the line that separates the two candidates. Still, people should pay close attention when they're in the booth to ensure that the person they're trying to select actually gets their vote.
