How many people didn’t check their ballot?”
The following reports will do little to assuage the suspicions of conservatives leery of voter fraud this election cycle, as early voters in Texas say that voting machines changed their votes for Donald Trump to Hillary Clinton.
The Dallas News reports that voting machines in Dallas, Collin, Tarrant and other counties are at the center of the allegations that straight-ticket Republican voters claim their ballots changed at the last minute to reflect a vote for Hillary Clinton.
According to the report only the presidential pick was altered, not down-ballot races:
Garland City Council member Stephen Stanley said he went to an early voting station at Nicholson Memorial South Branch Library on Tuesday morning while campaigning for candidates on the ballot.
He said around noon a woman came out of the library and told him she had tried to vote straight ticket Republican but the machine said she had voted straight Democrat.
The woman told him a poll worker apologized that the machine wasn’t working and instructed her to use another one.
Stanley question is, “how many other people didn’t know?” and didn’t check their ballots?
Of course the Dallas News’ headline chalked it up to “user error”:
Dallas County elections administrator Toni Pippins-Poole encouraged all voters to double-check their ballots before submitting them. She said she’s received second-hand reports of malfunctioning machines, but no one has logged an official complaint and she doesn’t have any names to go with the claims.
“It could be voter error or it could be that the machine needs to be recalibrated,” Pippins-Poole said.
Pippins-Polle says eventually the voters in question were able to cast their ballots properly, for the person they intended to vote for. Gee, how encouraging. We’re so glad they were able to get it right the second, third, fourth time perhaps?
Let this be a cautionary tale to all of those who are headed to the polls this election — report anything the least bit suspect and let us know about your experience here at TruthRevolt.
