Texas voters better check their ballots over very, very carefully. At least two posts from early voters in the Lone Star State went viral after election rigging red flags occurred when they went to their polling places.
The Texas voters maintain all-Republican ballots they cast were accurate, except for one extremely important race. According to the folks who shared their stories, their votes for the Donald Trump and Mike Pence ticket were switched to a mark for Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine.
The post about was from Texas voter Lisa Houlette, and it is pretty worrisome considering most people probably do not take the time to actually check their ticket.
Houlette went on to say she asked for help correcting the vote from one of the county board of election workers. The first staffers was unable to fix the ballot, but a second worker was able to return Houlette’s voting choices back to a straight Republican ticket.
The same thing happened to Lisa Houlette’s husband’s ballot. The couple live in Canyon, Texas.
Early voting for the 2016 presidential election began on Monday in Texas. Voters gathered in line up to 12 hours in advance to cast ballots for Donald Trump in many locations.
Shandy Clark also posted on social media about the switching of votes happening to a a relative of her’s in Austin. Clark’s loved one said she voted a straight Republican ticket but when she checked her ballot, the recording showed a ballot was going to be cast for Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine.
“She reported it and made sure her vote was changed back. They commented that it had been happening. She is trying to get the word out and asked that we post and share. Just want everyone’s vote to be accurate and count,” Shandy Clark also added.
Potter County Judge Nancy Tanner denied any election rigging was going on in Texas. In a public statement released earlier yesterday, Judge Tanner blamed the ballot issues on human error.
“There is nothing wrong with any of the machines we use for voting. They do not flip your vote. They do not flip parties. Humans do that,” Judge Tanner said.”There was one incident in Randall County where a voter voted straight ticket and when they hit the vote button, it flipped parties. The machine was then checked and nothing was wrong with the machine.”
So if they voted a straight party ticket and the machine flipped their vote as the judge said, how is that human error? How is that not a flawed machine?
Do you think election rigging is going to happen in an attempt to cheat the American people and put Hillary Clinton in the White House?
