A Mississippi voter posted a video Tuesday morning that seemed to show an electronic voting machine changing the candidate selected in the Mississippi Republican runoff for governor.

Facebook user Sally Kate Walker posted the video showing a man’s finger clicking to select candidate Bill Waller Jr., but the machine recording the vote for Tate Reeves instead.

“Let’s see here. Nope. It is not letting me vote for who I want to vote for,” the man voting says in the video as he repeatedly clicks the screen.
