Shocking video showing a malfunction of an electronic voting device during the Mississippi election results has become viral on the internet, raising the concern of citizens.
The clip was shared on Tuesday by Oxford resident Sally Kate Walker, and shows a male voter casting his vote by choosing from two available options on a touchscreen.
The man touches a box with the indication & # 39; Bill Waller Jr & # 39; – the candidate for whom he votes to be the next Republican governor of the state.
However, as soon as he selects his option, the machine accidentally marks a box labeled & # 39; Tate Reeves & # 39; – the other candidate in the run-up to the governor of Mississippi.

& # 39; No, & # 39; says the voter while he & # 39; Bill Waller Jr. & # 39; tries to touch box again.
The machine is not working properly for a second time and again selects Tate Reeves as the man's favorite voice.
& # 39; How does this happen? & # 39; a woman can be heard saying in the background.
The man keeps trying on Bill Waller Jr. to vote by selecting the appropriate highlighted box on the touch screen.
He presses his preferred option 14 times, but each time the electronic machine still selects Tate Reeves.
& # 39; It doesn't let me vote for who I want to vote for! & # 39; the frustrated man shouts.

& # 39; Ummmm …. seems legitimate, Mississippi, & # 39; Walker wrote under the video she posted on Facebook.
& EXACTLY EXACTLY the same thing happened to me this morning at Buster Brown in Greenville, MS !!! "I just thought it was a glitch on my machine, but clearly not," another voter said below the clip.
It seems that voters are already skeptical about electronic machines, with another addition: & # 39; I trust nothing but paper ballots & # 39 ;.
& # 39; No shocker there. This exact problem happened as early as 2016. Not completely surprised, & a third person begged.
According to Clarion-Ledger, the Waller campaign received reports of defective touch-screen machines in seven countries.
Late on Tuesday, he admitted to Tate Reeves, who collected 56% of the votes to 44% of Waller.
Reeves will now take on Democrat Jim Hood at the November general election.
