Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s talk of a ‘rigged system’ just might be coming true, according to reports from local news outlets in Pennsylvania.
In Clinton Township, election judges confirmed that there had been issues with two of their eight automated voting machines.
Voters claimed that when they specifically wanted to vote for Trump, the machine switched their choice to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
“Every time I would push a candidate for the Republican party, it would come up for the Democratic candidate,” said voter David Drane.
“I went back, pressed Trump again. Three times I did this, so then I called one of the women that were working the polls over. And she said you must be doing it wrong. She did it three times and it defaulted to Hillary every time,” Bobbie Lee Hawranko said.
Social media users, especially on Twitter, were quick to spread the word and let Pennsylvania residents know:

Another incident occurred in Lebanon County, where five out of the 270 voting machines had calibration issues. Apparently, voters who listed a straight Republican ticket were shocked when they found out their choices came up as all Democrat when they went to review their selection.
Election Director Michael Anderson said Tuesday morning that the machines which were registering Republican votes as Democrat votes had been fixed.
Pennsylvania State Representative Daryl Metcalfe urged voters to notify the judge of elections at their local precinct and request that those machines be removed from polling stations.
“If somebody has an issue, they should certainly let the judge of elections at the precinct know and also call their county bureau of elections as folks have done here this morning,” Metcalfe said.
“Those machines should be taken out of the mix and they shouldn’t be using those machines,” Metcalfe added. “They ought to be replacing those and using new machines to replace the ones that are acting up.”
According to data from Google, there has been a 300 percent increase in searches related to “voting machine problems” across Pennsylvania over the past couple of hours.
