Voters who cast ballots in Mississippi's Republican gubernatorial primary runoff have claimed the touch-screen voting machine switched their selected votes, according to reports.

Officials in two counties confirmed the alleged vote flipping malfunction.

One of the candidate's campaign says they've heard of instances happening in several counties, were the machines automatically changed individuals' intended selections.

Facebook user Sally Kate Walker posted a video of a voter demonstrating the glitch.

The video called into question the trustworthiness of the electronic system.

In the video, the voter is trying to cast their ballot for Supreme Court Chief Justice Bill Waller Jr., but the machine repeatedly places an "X" next to the box for Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves.

The glitch happens more than a dozen times.

According to the Clarion Ledger:

"There have been at least three reports confirmed by officials of voting machines in two counties changing voters' selections in the state's GOP governor primary runoff."

The newspaper reported the Waller campaign "has received reports of the same issues from Leflore, Lamar, Pearl River, Lincoln, Washington, Forrest, and Scott counties."

All the reports of the machine malfunction by the Clarion-Ledger was an instance of a machine rejecting a vote for Waller in favor of Reeves.

Newsweek reported that "officials suspect that the offending machines were somehow mishandled and lost calibration."

Voter machine reliability has been the subject of much debate.

Last year, over 100 voters were caught attempting to vote twice in the same election in a Democrat-dominated Florida county, using electronic machines.

Election officials have reportedly rejected 108 ballots in Miami-Dade County from voters who turned up to pollings stations to vote a second time, according to a local media reporter.

Miami Herald reporter Doug Hanks reports that the Miami-Dade County canvassing board is aggressively "red-stamping" fraudulent ballots from individuals who voted more than once.
