A computer software glitch flipped 6,000 votes in a Republican-dominated Michigan county on Election Day. Fortunately, eagle-eyed election clerks noticed the discrepancy and hand-counted the ballots. Unfortunately, state officials used that same software in 47 of Michigan’s 83 counties, and we could find no reports suggesting they’re inclined to examine the results.

Now we’re finding out that poll workers corrected another possible computer glitch, flipping the results in Connecticut’s 90th House District by declaring Republican State Rep. Craig Fishbein the winner.

Fishbein now leads his Democrat challenger Jim Jinks by 21 votes. An automatic recount is pending.

The Connecticut Mirror reports:

The Wallingford town clerk, Barbara Thompson, said Tuesday her office discovered that no votes had been recorded in the state election reporting system from the Yalesville Elementary School, one of nine polling places in the 90th District of Cheshire and Wallingford.

“I can’t answer if it was a clerical error or a computer error in the elections management system,” Thompson said. “All I know is we caught it yesterday and amended it.”

The tally on the state’s election report system now shows Fishbein with 7,058 votes to 7,037 for Jinks, or 50.07 % to 49.93%. Under state law, a recount is automatic when the race is settled by a margin of less 0.50%. The difference in the 90th is about 0.15%.

While votes are tabulated by optical scanners, the numbers are manually uploaded by local officials into the election management system maintained by the secretary of the state’s office. The official statement of the vote from each community is filed in writing after a review by the clerk and registrars of voters.

I have a hard time believing that all these errors are “mistakes”. I mean one or two? Sure. But ALL of these? No, I am sorry it is not statistically possible for them all to be “innocent mistakes”.

Calculate the odds of ALL glitches /mistakes being 1 sided.

I agree with you it is a statistical impossibility for that to happen. If is was a mistake it would or could not be one sided, which this appears to be.

Again, it’s a machine, it can only do what it’s programmed to do.
