After the 2020 election experience for America, with unmonitored ballot boxes stuffed in the middle of the night, rules changed mid-election, and two outside influences that likely affected the winner, one might have expected a 2022 election day sparkling clean.
One would have been wrong, as election machine glitches, paper supplies that ran out, lines that ran outdoors, and more failures appeared from border to border.
For example, one report noted that in Bear Creek, Pennsylvania, voting machines died and there was no paper available for voting.
Vox reported there were complaints about malfunctioning voting machines in Georgia, New York, and Michigan that caused “long lines and, in some cases, voters to leave without casting a ballot.”
It cited reports that 41 states are using systems that are at least a decade old and many states are using machines so old they’re not even made anymore.
The Washington Examiner noted the problems were not all with machines, as a Johns Creek, Georgia, poll worker was fired for posting threats to the election on social media.
It was the Gateway Pundit that cited several problems.
“If Democrats can’t cheat, they can’t win,” the listing explained. “Michigan Secretary of State candidate Kristina Karamo promises to bring election integrity back to the state of Michigan. … No more late-night ballot drops, no more manufactured votes, no more computer ‘glitches’ or thugs at the election centers.”
But, the report said, Karamo said voters in Michigan on Tuesday were being told they already had voted. Even if they hadn’t.
The publication also reported that in Arizona, Maricopa County voters were being told the tabulators were not working.
Additionally, the Gateway Pundit reported there was a “programming glitch” in voting machines in Mercer, New Jersey, involving the Dominion machines used there.
“Voters are not being turned away, but are being asked to fill out ballots manually and place them in the slot for manual counting later,” the report said.
The GatewayPundit reported, “Far-left TIME magazine released a piece this morning full of outrageous statements and opinions that border on the absurd. What this article does tell us is that the fix is in, Americans just need to accept it and move along. The far-left crooks are back at it. They again have colluded with the media in pushing narratives that they want Americans to believe. These are not truths. Their arguments and statements are noise.
“In a piece that was unsuspiciously released this morning, TIME magazine says that the 2022 election will take a week and this is normal and good – ‘That’s Democracy at Work.'”
Just the News said a judge in Georgia had to take action, extending the ballot deadline, after county officials failed to mail about 1,000 absentee ballots.
The report said, “Officials in Cobb County, Ga., said late last week that they would mail out hundreds of absentee ballots after a county elections worker ‘did not employ any process’ to ensure huge numbers of ballots were going out as ordered.”
Cobb County Superior Court Judge Kellie Hill said, as a result, the county must take and count absentee ballots until November 15.
At the Post-Millennial, a report said the problems with the Arizona voting involved machines made by Dominion.
“So what happens is we have two tabulators. One of the tabulators is not working, okay? The other tabulator is taking about 75 successful, so 25 percent of them are being misread. And it could be a printer issue, or it could be the tabulator itself,” the official explained.
