Voters everywhere are already skeptical of the voting system, having experienced major counting issues in the presidential election of 2020.
“Pennsylvania Republicans successfully defeated Democrats in several Montgomery County elections despite equipment delays and ballot printing issues, causing officials to count thousands of ballots through the week after the election,” reported Breitbart News.
“Republicans appeared to sweep Montgomery County’s school boards after polls closed initially,” Breitbart News reported.
“An estimated 23,000 mail-in ballots in Montgomery were misprinted, as voters received one-sided ballots and ones unable to be read by scanners. The election was November 2, and local news outlets reported Republican wins as initial results showed 100 percent of precincts reporting. In reality, 100 percent of in-person ballots were counted, but more than 20,000 mail-in ballots remained uncounted,” according to Breitbart News.
Montgomery County Republican Committee Executive Director Julia Vahey said, “I’m pretty disappointed by what happened. We’re already combatting a narrative of last year where people do not trust the system. And this did us no favors in trying to sway anyone to feel more comfortable with mail-in voting.”
“Nearly 223,000 ballots have been counted, including more than 71,000 mail-ins. Overwhelmingly, mail-in ballots favored Democrats, but Republicans did flip two school boards and retain two others while also winning seats in several other local races,” according to Breitbart News.
