...a voting glich that goes towards the Dems. Boing Boing reports:
In New Jersey, a problem cropped up when the name of Democratic Senator Robert Menendez was automatically highlighted on some machines. That caused some two dozen voters to complain that the only way to de-select it was to press it again, which Republican Party officials said led to some people inadvertently voting for Menendez.
There should never be a default selection in a voting machine, so either the manufacturer of the machine screwed up, or someone tried to alter the vote. At least it was an obvious flaw, and hopefully nobody voted for the wrong person.
