PHILADELPHIA » A state official says a central Pennsylvania voting machine has been recalibrated and is back into service after it switched a person's vote from President Barack Obama to Mitt Romney.

Department of State spokesman Ron Ruman says the Perry County voter notified elections officials of the problem after trying to cast his ballot today. Video of what Ruman called a "momentary glitch" was posted on YouTube.

Ruman says the machine was taken out of service, recalibrated and is now working fine.

In other issues, state GOP Chairman Rob Gleason says 75 Republican election workers were prohibited from accessing polling places in heavily Democratic Philadelphia, prompting a court order. A mural of Obama at another Philadelphia polling location was also ordered covered up.

The Democratic Party did not immediately comment.
