Those voting machines in Clark County Nevada that kept popping up Harry Reid's name despite which selection was made? From the Washington Examiner:
Nevada voting machines automatically checking Harry Reid's name; voting machine technicians are SEIU members
Clark County is where three quarters of Nevada's residents and live and where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's son Rory is a county commissioner. Rory is also a Democratic candidate for governor.

Since early voting started, there have been credible reports that voting machines in Clark County, Nevada are automatically checking Harry Reid's name on the ballot:
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."

Clark County Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax said there is no voter fraud, although the issues do come up because the touch-screens are sensitive. For that reason, a person may not want to have their fingers linger too long on the screen after they make a selection at any time.
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 visitor to the White House last year.
Ahh yes -- the old "Lingering Finger" -- sort of the "Hanging Chad" of this election cycle. I am not holding my breath but it will be interesting to see how many people spend some quality time in the Graybar Hotel in the next year or two. Embedded in the Examiner post is the contract between Clark County and Local 1107 of the SEIU. One thing to consider is that the elected official who oversees the state's voting process is the Secretary of State and there is an odious project funded by George Soros -- check out the Secretary of State Project whose tagline reads:
Support Secretaries of State who will protect the election.
Just damn. Talk about someone who has overstayed their welcome on this planet by about 60 years. Hey George Soros -- you have the ability to make money; this does not confer intelligence or wisdom or humanity.
