The article didn't mention if the results skewed the election one way or the other. In fact, it just pointed out that the machines were incredibly error-prone.

If the machine powered down every time someone voted for Kerry, that would be one thing, but there's nothing in the report that shows that happened.

Personally, I find it surprising that a machine cannot be constructed to perform the simple task of recording votes in this day and age. The old punch card voting machines are more reliable.
