There have been stories of voting machines switching votes in Illinois and Maryland, but they’ve been anecdotal and blamed on voter error or calibration issues.

Now comes video of it actually happening.

A man in Moline, Ill., used his phone to document how his vote for a Republican registered as a vote for the Democrat. The man wanted to vote for Neil Anderson for Illinois State Senate, but when he touched Anderson’s name (as seen clearly in the video), the vote registered for Mike Jacobs, the Democrat.

It wasn’t a one-time “error,” the same thing happened when he tried to vote for Republican Rep. Bobby Schilling. When he touched Schilling’s name, the vote registered for his Democratic challenger Cheri Bustos.
