Well, this has been going on for some time and should not come as a surprise seeing that under testimony, we know that electronic voting can be manipulated and it can be done in such a way as so that no one knows it is even happening. However, as early voters in Texas are discovering, some altering is taking place right before their eyes just like it did in 2016.

In Texas, the hotly watched contest between incumbent Ted Cruz and Democrat Beto O’Rourke is at the center of the voting.

Texans are claiming that their straight-ticket voting is being flipped to the other party in this key race and others.

This is occurring in at least 80 counties in Texas!

The Houston Chronicle reports:

Some straight-ticket voters have reported that voting machines recorded them selecting the candidate of another party for U.S. Senate, exposing a potential problem with the integrity of the state’s high-profile contest between U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and Congressman Beto O’Rourke and leading good government groups to sound the alarm.

Several Democratic voters, for example, have complained the voting system indicated they were about to cast a vote for Cruz, a Republican, instead of Democrat O’Rourke as they prepared to send it. Some said they were able to get help from staff at the polling place and change their votes back to what they intended before finalizing their ballots.

Most of the 15 to 20 people who have complained to the state so far said that their straight-ticket ballot left their vote for U.S. Senate blank, according to Sam Taylor, communications director for the Secretary of State. A spokesman for the Texas Civil Rights Project said the group has received about a half dozen complaints, mostly of Democratic straight ticket voters whose ballots erroneously included a vote for Cruz, and one Republican straight ticket voter whose ballot tabulated a vote for O’Rourke.

The problem occurs on the Hart eSlate voting machine when voters turn a selection dial and hit the “enter” button simultaneously, according to the state. Eighty-two of the 254 counties in Texas have these machines, although complaints have only come from Fort Bend, Harris, McLennan, Montgomery, Tarrant and Travis counties, according to Taylor.

In a report by ABC 13, several voters told their story about how their votes were flipped right before their eyes.
