    Confirmed: Why Yes, a Texas Voting Machine DID Leave Greg Abbott Off the Ballot

    Confirmed: Why Yes, a Texas Voting Machine DID Leave Greg Abbott Off the Ballot

    Daniel Doherty | Nov 08, 2014






    Not that it mattered, of course. Greg Abbott absolutely routed his opponent in the general election on Tuesday night. But it is disconcerting that when a voter went to pull the lever for the governor-elect, his name was...nowhere to be found. Instead, former Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst’s name appeared, a guy who ran for a completely different office in Texas and lost in the primary:
    The company that supplies Bexar County with iVotronic ballot machines acknowledged Wednesday that a glitch caused an electronic ballot to display the wrong name for the Republican candidate in the race for Texas governor. A written statement from Election Systems & Software said a faulty memory card appeared to be the reason why GOP candidate Greg Abbott’s name was missing from the ballot. In his place was Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst. “I’m happy they were able to find the glitch,” said San Antonio voter Jade Stanford, who took two cell phone photos of the error that immediately went viral on the Internet. “It wasn’t Photoshop, it wasn’t botched, it was real.”
    This was reportedly the only machine in Texas that left Abbott off the ballot. Or so we're told. Read the company’s full statement below (via Breitbart):
    On November 4, 2014, an issue was reported with a single voting unit in a Bexar County precinct in the General Election. An initial analysis by Bexar County and the ES&S technician on site has confirmed that the unit in question was not functioning properly and was incorrectly displaying a candidate in one race on the touch screen. The unit in question was immediately removed from use and no further issues were reported. There were a total of 12 votes cast on the unit and all votes were tabulated correctly. The results tape did reflect the correct candidates for that race and no votes for compromised. While it currently appears that a faulty memory card is at issue, a full review and diagnostic test is underway to determine and validate the exact cause of this issue. Once this review is complete, ES&S will provide a report to Bexar County detailing the outcome of the forensic analysis. Bexar County followed proper protocol and procedure in all testing, coding and equipment preparation.

    I am sorry but I must disagree with Kathyet2. Voter fraud is not rampant on "both sides" of the isle. If that were true then it would be a non issue because each side would essentially cancel out any advantage gained by fraudulent votes by the other. The results would be pretty much the same as an honest, fraud free election.

    History has clearly demonstrated that voter fraud overwhelmingly favors the Democrat Party, that is why Erich (The Thug) Holder has constantly used the Department of "Justice" to thwart all efforts for voter ID and other common sense efforts to ensure the integrity of the voting process.

    History has shown that although there is plenty wrong with the GOP and the RINOs it has never been demonstrated that they were into big time voting fraud like the Democrats.

    I am sick and tired of the excuse "computer glitch!" The damned computer only knows what it is told, it is "human" error, or as in this case possibly human corruption. Indicative of what is wrong in society in general, no one accepts responsibility for mistakes, omissions, or crimes, etc.

    While I don't see the GOP being rampant with voter fraud your argument is completely incorrect. Your assuming that their is only ever 2 choices, the GOP pick and the DNC pick. If both parties use rampant voter fraud that could cancel out much of the fraud between the 2 picks. The problem comes in with NON GOP/DNC picks especially during the primaries. It would take away the peoples choice in favor of the parties choice which often is not the same pick. This already though happens in so many ways making it near impossible for anyone w/o huge money behind them and big money supporters to run a campaign at all or get on even a primary ballot.
