Actually, double-checking is a good idea no matter where you are, but in Nevada there seems to be some reason to be extra attentive:

LAS VEGAS — Some voters in Boulder City complained on Monday that their ballot had been cast before they went to the polls, raising questions about Clark County’s electronic voting machines.

Voter Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid’s name was already checked.

Ferrara said she wasn’t alone in her voting experience. She said her husband and several others voting at the same time all had the same thing happen.

“Something’s not right,” Ferrara said. “One person that’s a fluke. Two, that’s strange. But several within a five minute period of time — that’s wrong.”

Yep, the screens were already filled in — something like this:

[X] Man who single-handedly saved the world from another great depression
[ ] Palinista with extreme and dangerous ideas

But that’s not all. There’s already been a problem in North Carolina as well:

A Craven County voter says he had a near miss at the polls on Thursday when an electronic voting machine completed his straight-party ticket for the opposite of what he intended.

Sam Laughinghouse of New Bern said he pushed the button to vote Republican in all races, but the voting machine screen displayed a ballot with all Democrats checked. He cleared the screen and tried again with the same result, he said. Then he asked for and received help from election staff.

“They pushed it twice and the same thing happened,” Laughinghouse said. “That was four times in a row. The fifth time they pushed it and the Republicans came up and I voted.”

So that’s four votes for the Democrats and one for the Republicans. Just kidding… I think… maybe not.

So far the electronic voting machine anomalies seem to be favoring the Democrats. Normally I prefer my coincidences to seem a little more coincidental.

So there are just a couple more examples to add to the list.

Update:

Just another coincidence in Nevada?

Now there’s absolutely no independently verified evidence of chicanery with the voting machines (yet), but it is worth noting that the voting machine technicians in Clark County are members of the Service Employees International Union. The SEIU spent $63 million in elections in 2008 and is planning on spending $44 million more this election cycle — nearly all of that on Democrats. White House political director Patrick Gaspard is formerly the SEIU’s top lobbyist, and former SEIU president Andy Stern was the most frequent vistor to the White House last year.

True, this is evidence of nothing, but there would be well beyond raised eyebrows if there were “voting irregularities” that favored Republicans and the techs on those machines were from the Chamber of Commerce and Fox News.
