Carolyn Goodman woke up bright and early today to vote for herself for Las Vegas mayor, but almost pulled the lever for her opponent, Chris Giunchigliani.
When Goodman pushed the button next to her name on a voting machine at the Public Administration Building downtown, Giunchigliani’s name popped up.
“I touched my name and strangely ended up with my opponent,” a visibly worried Goodman said from her voting booth. She pushed the button a second time and successfully voted for herself.
“I think it’s the finger nails,” Goodman said afterward. “Obviously, I’m voting for myself.”
Goodman said she heard of similar problems taking place at polling places Friday, the last day of early voting.
Mayor Oscar Goodman, who voted Tuesday morning with his wife, asked Goodman’s campaign manager to make elections officials aware of the problem.
