"Mitt Romney" Votes at These Machines in Guilford County, NC were coming up as votes for Obama. The Unions' response: "It happens from time to time".... WHAT??????????

GREENSBORO, N.C. The presidential election is just around the corner and voting issues have already become a huge problem in Guilford County.


On Monday, several voters complained that their electronic ballot machine cast the wrong vote.

All the complaints were made by people who voted at the Bur-Mil Park polling location.


One of the voters, Sher Coromalis, says she cast her ballot for Governor Mitt Romney, but every time she entered her vote, the machine automatically defaulted to President Obama.


I was so upset that this is happening, said Coromalis.


Guilford County Board of Elections Director George Gilbert says this problem arises every election. It can be resolved after the machine is re-calibrated by poll workers.


Its not a conspiracy its just the machines need to be corrected, Gilbert said.


After the third try, Coromalis says she was able to get her vote counted for Gov. Romney but was still very annoyed.


I should have just mailed it in, Coromalis said.


Marie Haydock, who also voted at the Bur-Mil Park polling location, had the very same problem.


The frustration is every vote counts, said Haydock.


Elections officials say the machines have been fixed as of Tuesday, and no problems have been reported since.


Early voting ends November 3
