Voting Machines Already Trouble

A report from the field today garnishes this information on early voting problems:

Early voting sites have malfunctions at Barber Park (Dan Rd, Greensboro) - opened at 11:30, instead of 10:00...malfunctions throughout the day, Culler Center (N Hamilton St., High Point) - Machines down during Day, and Leonard Center (Ballinger Rd, Greensboro)- Machines Down During day.
Only 4 machines were being used at EV locations, and lines were over an hour wait at AG Center (Burlington Rd, Greensboro).

Sounds like were off to a great start with these machines, maybe they'll figure it out by the 7th of November.

Also the Republican No-good-nicks begins:

Maggie Jeffus and Brad Miller signs stolen at AG Center, Leonard Center, and Culler Center.

A person with literature, from the Jim Rumley campaign was asked if they knew anything about missing signs, and they said, "No, but with the unfair Democratic advantage in Guilford County, it is ok to do that."

If you see anyone taking campaign signs, please get a license plate number and report it to the Board of Elections. It is a crime to mess with campaign yard signs. All I want is a level playing field. If the Republican's are OK with cheating, then it is a sign that they are scared. They should be.

Update 8:40pm: Signs also stolen at Craft Center (Yanceyville St, Greensboro) and Barber Park (Dan Rd, Greensboro). Oddly enough, were the signs are gone, Jim Rumley bumper stickers are all over the street signs. Coincidence? I think not. Hopefully no more updates are needed.
