    He gets my vote (if my district is in Arizona)! Even though I find the air cymbal kind of amusing in the outside shots.

    I would be disappointed if there is malicious intent with this if this is true. Nobody should ever tamper with voting results, no matter the affiliation. I would be equally disappointed if there would be a conspiracy of these claims against the SEIU members. But at this current time, all parties are innocent until proven guilty ("there's absolutely no independently verified evidence of chicanery with the voting machines (yet)").

    Even then, it should be up to the voter to make sure they use the electronic voting machines carefully. It is really easy to accidentally press items on touch screens compared to paper/mechanical methods. But even if there is a change of the "default vote" for a certain candidate (malicious or not), the voter should be intelligent to notice it, and correct it to their wish. Electronic voting machines also have confirmation screens as well, so there should be no room for the voter to complain about not having the correct choices being tallied (although this doesn't justify the original malicious action). But, if the actual tallies post-voting are being doctored, is another story.

    Translation: Yea, it's wrong, but if Reid wins because of it then it's the fault of the dumbasses that couldn't figure out how to change the default vote (stupid republican voters!) ;)

    The fact of the matter is that voting machines SHOULD NOT have a "default vote" option in them at all.

    Well it should probably "Abstain" or something similar. :p

    Yeah basically. I was also thinking about some default item that if set doesn't allow you to submit the vote.

    Oddly, I live in a fairly tech-savvy area and at the last elections we basically had to fill in a scantron sheet. I swear these electronic voting machines are a myth.

    I was more just pointing that out to the world in specific than trying to make a comeback, so we agree :p

    I did 9/11. And I'll do it again if Epic doesn't make another Unreal Tournament.
