Oprah Advises You Double-Check Your Vote After Scare with Electronic Voting Machine

Talk show host Oprah Winfrey, who voted early, said on her show recently that the electronic voting machine she used did not record her presidential vote. She had to double check it and advises you to do the same if you're voting electronically on November 4. Here's video:

HuffPo has a longer, more entertaining video under Oprah's early voting meltdown with a funny story about how the poll workers all called her name when it was her turn. The Oprah blog at The Chicago Sun Times also covers Oprah's early voting incident.

In the HuffPo video, Oprah said that a woman saw her at the polls and said to another voter, "That's Oprah. You know who she's voting for!"

Yeah, we know. She dubbed Barack Obama "the one" fairly early in the campaign.

Despite her near meltdown, Winfrey said she had to wait, but the early voting process was organized.
