Tens of thousands report voting problems

(HOUSTON CHRONICLE) Long lines weren’t the only problems voters are facing across the country Tuesday. Particularly in battleground states, reports of voting problems were flooding into vote-protection groups.

The Election Protection Coalition, comprised of more than 100 local organizations dedicated to protecting the right to vote, reported more than 70,000 complaint calls by 5 p.m. Eastern time.

A YouTube video making the rounds Tuesday depicted a central Pennsylvania voting screen in which the voter touches President Obama’s name only to see Mitt Romney’s name illuminated. The problem was determined to be a “calibration issue’’ and voters were able to touch a spot on the screen to illuminate Obama.
