Rock Island county clerk Karen Kinney told KWQC TV that people raising the issue of voting machines in her county repeatedly switching votes for Republican candidates to Democrat votes is “voter suppression”.

KWQC talked to the County Clerk’s Office today who said they’re addressing the issue.

“That’s our priority to make sure that everyone’s vote counts and we will continue to do so,” said County Clerk Karen Kinney.

She said they’ve received minimal complaints about touch-screen issues and have addressed them. Kinney said they’ve re-calibrated the machine in question.

“They should dismiss their fears. I feel like this is just a very small group of people targeting us and it’s all about voter suppression,” she said. “They want to discourage people from voting, do not let that affect your vote. Come on out and vote, your vote is safe. It will be counted.”

On Wednesday video was released of a voter in Moline, IL making multiple votes for Republican candidates on the touch screen voting machine which then switched the votes to the Democrat candidate.

Republican congressional candidate Bobby Schilling has reported that roughly two dozen people have sent his campaign complaints about voting machines in Rock Island county switching their votes.
