Spider blamed for delayed vote count in US town!
A spider, not suspected voter fraud delayed the election count in the American town of Rehoboth.
Rehoboth Town Clerk Kathleen Conti said the aging voting machines malfunctioned on Tuesday.
According to the Sun Chronicle, Conti said that after she called a technician to get the machine fixed he told her that a spider web apparently prevented the machine's scanner from counting ballots.
The vote count was not completed until Wednesday afternoon.
Conti said that she has been pressing to have the voting machines replaced for several years.
Rehoboth voters favoured Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney, who lives in Massachusetts.
