More Voting Irregularities

Newsmax has an interesting story, though I am as yet unable to confirm it elsewhere:

A copy of the staff ballots e-mailed worldwide, and obtained by NewsMax, showed the employees could only vote "yes" to support Annan.

No negative option was on the ballot.

Even worse, according to several U.N. staffers, just running the cursor over the ballot's yes box registered as a yes vote without clicking the mouse.

As a result, numerous yes votes were erroneously registered, and the U.N. refused to cancel them.
Can anyone vouch for or against the report's veracity?
