    FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – In a hyper partisan election, some voters in Tarrant County are finding they’re selecting the candidate of the party they don’t want.
    The issue is coming up when voters select the “straight party” option.
    About ten voters in Tarrant County have complaints that something isn’t right when they select the “straight party” option… meaning they want to vote all Republican or all Democrat.
    Tarrant County Elections Administrator Heider Garcia sees he believes he knows what the issue is, walking us through the process using a mock ballot.

    “You just find a party you like. You’re going to click on it and wait until the machine marks everything on the ballot for that party,” said Garcia.
    Sounds easy enough but about ten voters in Tarrant County have complaints that something isn’t right when they select the “straight party” option…meaning they want to vote all Republican or all Democrat.
    The Texas Secretary of State, who is in charge of elections is warning voter, saying the Tarrant County residents who reach out to his office say “…it appeared to them that the machine had changed one or more of their selections to a candidate from a different party.”
    Garcia showed us what can happen when voters move a selection wheel on voting machines in Tarrant County. After the “straight party” option is selected, the ballot takes a couple seconds to load the straight party option— giving voters plenty of time to push buttons below the screen— inadvertently allowing them to change their selections.
    “You can always do your review when you get to the summary screen and make sure that what you are seeing on the screen is what you intend to vote for,” said Garcia.

    The review page will automatically come up before you cast your final ballot.
    “I told a couple of people today, you waited 20, 30 minutes today to vote. Take an extra 30 seconds to make sure what you’re about to record is what you came in to vote for,” said Garcia.
    Election workers can help you learn the machine, but they can’t review your votes for your since it’s a secret ballot.

    The electronic ballot is the one option during early voting, but in Election Day, you will be able to cast a paper ballot.

    Texas early voters say voting machines are flipping votes

    Voters casting their ballots early in Texas claimed this week that when casting Democratic or Republican straight-ticket ballots, voting machines in at least 80 counties in the Lone Star State flipped their votes to the other party in key midterm races, including the high-profile competition between incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz and his Democratic opponent Beto O'Rourke.
    The Texas secretary of state's office on Friday said that there have been issues reported with Hart eSlate voting machines, which are used in approximately 30 percent of counties statewide. The machines feature a wheel for selecting candidates and buttons to move from screen to screen.
    But the secretary of state's office said the issues were not caused by the voting machines, but by voters themselves.
    "The Hart eSlate machines are not malfunctioning, the problems being reported are a result of user error — usually voters hitting a button or using the selection wheel before the screen is finished rendering," said Sam Taylor, spokesman for the office of Secretary of State Rolando Pablos.
    The Houston Chronicle reported that Democratic voters claimed the machines indicated that they were about to cast a vote for Cruz, when they originally intended to choose O'Rourke. Several people said they were able to get help from employees at polling places in order to change their vote back.

    Mickey Blake, a Houston resident, told KTRK-TV that she voted for Democrats down the ticket but saw before she submitted it that O’Rourke’s name was not selected.
    The machines are used in around 80 counties in the state. Early voting in Texas began Monday and has featured a strong turnout.
    The machine’s manufacturer, Hart InterVCivic, attributed the issues to 16-year-old technology and defended the machines' accuracy.
    "The same story has happened in multiple elections," Steven Sockwell, the company's vice president of marketing, said Friday. "There was no flipping then and there's not any now."
    In a statement to supporters, Cruz cited "multiple reports" of vote changing and added, "Once you select the Republican party ticket, please be patient and do not select 'next' until the ballot has populated all of the selections."

    The Texas Democratic Party called the issue "a malfunction," saying it was causing Democrats to inadvertently vote for Cruz and accused the secretary of state's office of not doing enough to warn voters of potential issues.
    Taylor said his office “has no legal authority whatsoever to force any” voting machine vendors “to make upgrades if their voting systems are otherwise in compliance with federal state and law.” He said the Hart eSlate’s system was certified in 2009. He also said it was the county’s responsibility to purchase new voting equipment if needed.
    "We will continue to educate Texas voters using existing resources," Taylor said, "and urge all Texans casting a ballot to take their time, slow down, and carefully review their ballot before casting one."
    The Houston Chronicle noted this will be the last election voters can vote for a straight ticket.

    And maybe a Serial Number where we can track and confirm our ballot!

    Like the post office, Fed Ex, UPS has tracking numbers for packages sent all over the World.

    I have no problem with finger print. Many people are already printed and in the system due to their careers and military service.

    Fingerprint the Real ID for easier identification by law enforcement.

    Match fingerprint at the voting booth.
