rage against the (electronic voting) machine

from newsnet5: A 61-year-old man was arrested after an alleged poll rage incident, NewsChannel5 reported. Officials said Marc A. Fenster was arrested after he knocked over two voting machines worth $2,700 each. They also said he assaulted a 17-year-old outside the polling place.

Fenster faces disorderly conduct, obstructing official business and resisting arrest charges. It took several people to restrain Fenster, who was trying to vote at a 4330 Jennings Road.

It's unclear what caused him to become upset.
