Early voting has been underway in Nevada for four days now, and there are people complaining that the electronic voting machines are not counting votes fairly.

Reports of ballot flipping have popped up across the nation, in fact.

FOX5 on Tuesday visited three early voting locations across Clark County to investigate. While we didn’t witness irregularities firsthand, we spoke with a woman who said she did.

“He said that when he hit the submit button or whatever everything shifted. It wasn’t the same people he voted for,” Angela Gramke said.

Gramke was set to cast her ballot. She said that when she witnessed what happened to the man next to her, she held off.  

“I already kind of feel like it’s rigged. I couldn’t believe that that happened,” she said.

FOX5 spoke to the Clark County Election department regarding the issue. A spokesperson said they’ve been using the same electronic voting machines for years and have never had a problem.

FOX5 sent an intern in to vote at the location Gramke was at. He didn’t have any problems. No one else there reported a problem either.

Still, mistakes happen, so voters are given the option to look their ballots over before submitting them.

The county election department spokesperson said they have not received complaint calls.
