Colorado election results: Pueblo voting screens tested after complaints of errors
Last Updated: 195 days ago
PUEBLO, Colo. - State officials have been testing electronic voting terminals in Pueblo after some voters complained that when they tried to cast a ballot for Mitt Romney, the terminal indicated the vote was for Barack Obama.
The Pueblo Chieftain reports that specialists from the Secretary of State's Office tested 10 of the 30 terminals Monday. They found the machines were sensitive to accidental touches but weren't deliberately diverting votes from one candidate to another.
The newspaper reports all erroneous votes were corrected with the help of an election judge.
The terminals twice ask voters to review their ballot choices for accuracy. Voters can correct the choices before the vote is cast.
Pueblo County Republican Party Chairwoman Becky Mizel said the number of complaints merited an investigation by the secretary of state.
