Voting Machine Alert!
Direct Action Texas is once again getting reports of difficulties with the eSlate system shown above. If your county uses these machines please take the following precaution: SLOW DOWN.
As we illustrated in our video from 2018, voters must not press enter or spin the wheel too rapidly. These machines are not your smartphone, more like your Grandma’s rotary phone. They are old systems due to be replaced. If you make a selection and then spin the wheel before the machine catches up, it can change your vote. Most people do not experience issues, but if you do, just go back and try again.
The most important thing to remember is to check all of your selections on the summary screen BEFORE you hit “CAST BALLOT”. Once you hit that big red button, you can’t go back. If you need assistance, ask for help from the Election Judge before you cast your ballot.
