Pennsylvania county voting machines flipping votes for superior court retention races | 7 Nov 2023 | "Voting" machines in a Pennsylvania county are flipping votes for elections regarding whether two state appeals court judges should be retained, according to county officials. Tuesday is Election Day in Pennsylvania for judicial positions and county, local, and municipal offices. However, county officials said that electronic voting machines are flipping votes in Northampton County for deciding whether Pennsylvania Superior Court Judges Jack Panella and Victor Stabile should remain on the bench for additional 10-year terms. The office of Northampton County Executive Lamont McClure released a statement on Tuesday explaining the issue. "It appears that when a voter selects a 'Yes' or a 'No' for one of the candidates for retention to the Pennsylvania Superior Court, the selection is recorded on the paper ballot and on the machine for the other candidate," the county office wrote.
