Straw Poll Results Delayed Due To Voting Machine Malfunction

For the record:

AMES -- The announcement of tonight's straw poll results has been delayed due to what one informed source says was a voting machine malfunction. About 4,500 ballots had to be re-run. We are waiting....

There are 158+ comments in the thread to this article, including this one which should raise a pretty alarming red flag as follows:

I am a programmer who has written for optical scanners. What number do you want? No problem.

As for the re-scanned vote cards - did someone manually delete the results of the first scan? See how easy it is to re-count to get the results you want?

Paper ballots and hand counting at the precinct level is the only way to assure a clean vote - with random audits and jail time for violators of course.
