Republicans in California Being Told They Already Voted By 'Wonky' Polling Computers


Republicans in San Fernando Valley are growing suspicious after being told they already voted when going to submit their ballots in the California gubernatorial recall election.

People who were forced to submit provisional ballots due to the errors spoke to KTLA about what is happening.

West Hills resident Estelle Bender, 88, told the station that she was not the only one who had the problem at El Camino Real Charter High School in Woodland Hills — and the issue seemed to be only happening to Republicans.

Bender said that she had friends who faced the same problem and spoke to three other people at the polling place who were also told they already cast their ballots when they had not. She also stated that the poll worker told her “this has been happening all morning.”

“I’d still like to know how I voted,” Bender said, adding that she “left really angry” after casting the provisional ballot.

The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder’s office said in a statement that the provisional ballots will make sure everyone’s votes are properly counted. They said that “once the eligibility of the voter is verified, [the ballots] are processed and counted.”

Governor Gavin Newsom’s fate will be decided on Tuesday. It is the fourth gubernatorial recall election in US history.

Current polls show that he is likely to remain in office, but it is still anyone’s game. According to the FiveThirtyEight average of polls, 41.6 percent of Californians want to recall him, while 56.2 percent do not.

“Usually, a 14.7-percentage-point polling lead is pretty safe, but this election isn’t usual, so some caution is warranted. This is a particularly challenging race to poll accurately because it’s hard to estimate who’s likely to vote. That’s due to two things in particular: the odd timing of the election (September of an odd-numbered year) and the fact that it is being conducted primarily by mail. In other words, don’t be surprised if there’s a larger-than-usual polling error,” FiveThirtyEight stressed.

    There is a reason eye-witness testimony is considered to be pretty weak evidence in court. I acknowledge my own bias towards the corruption of the electoral system (especially in California), but man would it be nice to have something more concrete. That being said, I still have a lot of doubt towards the fidelity of the recall election and I doubt anyone will be able to conduct a transparent audit of the system. I think we have too many laws in place that are unnecessary, but I also think we have too few laws in place in terms of transparency. I think as long as everyone involved is allowed to know the truth of things, they should get to make their own decisions. So I hope that we will be allowed to know the truth of things, including the truth of this recall election

    It’s sad that American’s would choose to live under a pathetic dictator like Newsom. But they are fringe leftists in the cities. The rural and small town people are all conservative and want him out.
    I just ask God to have his hands on California for the next day and the end result be his decision, not a bunch of people who don’t understand what they are doing.
