Two Hazleton area voters file complaints about new machines
One says she was unable to choose Santorum. Other says pick changed every time she went to next race.
Two Hazleton-area residents have filed official complaints concerning problems they say they encountered with Luzerne County’s new electronic voting machines.

County officials said they will continue investigating all complaints, though they haven’t found evidence of machine malfunctioning to date.

Evelyn Graham, a Hazleton City Councilwoman, said she touched the box for Republican gubernatorial candidate Lynn Swann, and it highlighted as her selection. But when she moved on to the next race and picked Republican senatorial candidate Rick Santorum, Graham said she noticed that Rendell’s name had become highlighted as her selection. Graham said she returned to the governor’s race, de-selected Rendell and selected Swann.

“I did it four to six times, and each time it changed back to Rendell.”
