It Kinda Goes With the Job Description....

The electronically challenged:
WBIR producer Rob Lloyd says he didn't get to cast his vote at the Farragut polling center this morning and he's not happy about it.

He says he did cast his vote for the governor's race, but then couldn't figure out how to make the electronic machine move forward to the next race in which he wanted to vote. When Rob asked a campaign worker to help him move past the governor's race to the Senate race, he was instructed to "push the red button." But when he did this, he was informed he had finished casting his votes.

Rob tried to explain to the election worker and her supervisor that he had not finished casting his votes when he was instructed to push the red button, but they told him there was nothing they could do.

Rob says he's very disappointed that he was prevented from voting. He also says that if he can't figure out how to work these fancy, electronic voting machines, he worries that older voters will have a truly difficult time.
I don't know. I'm kinda less worried that all the poor, senile old folks in Knoxville can't figure out how to turn a little wheel than I am that a TV Station executive can't use a device not much more complicated than a TV remote. It's not a F-15 you're trying to fly here, kids.

But that's just my opinion...I could be wrong.
