"Voter" Smashes "Voting" Machine

from CBC News:
A would-be voter was arrested in Allentown, Pa., where election workers said he smashed an electronic voting machine with a paperweight.

Authorities didn't know what caused the outburst.

"He came in here very peaceably and showed his ID, then he got on the machine and just snapped," volunteer Gladys Pezoldt told The Morning Call of Allentown.

The machine's screen was damaged, and it was not immediately clear if votes recorded on it could be retrieved. Police said the man faced charges of felony criminal mischief and tampering with voting machines.
That's not the way they taught us to do it in Civics class.
