Midterm elections: Voting machine automatically selects Republican candidate instead of Democrat in Indiana, video shows | The Independent

A video filmed inside an Indiana polling booth appears to show a voting machine repeatedly selecting a Republican candidate despite the user trying to vote for a Democrat in the Midterm elections.

The footage, which was sent to The Independent, shows a man, who didn’t want to be named due to the “volatile” nature of the US political landscape, pressing his finger on the Democratic congressional candidate Tobi Beck’s name. However the touchscreen on the voting machine selects the option above Beck on the list, Republican Jim Baird.

The man who filmed the video posted further footage on Reddit. In the second clip he can be seen attempting to vote for three Democratic candidates for the Wabash township board.
