People have continued to raise questions about the outcome of the recent midterm elections as issues were reported in key counties and swing districts across the country.
In Arizona and Pennsylvania, a significant number of people in Republican-dominated areas reported hours-long lines at polling stations and tabulators that were malfunctioning, preventing them from casting their votes.
In some polling stations in Arizona, voters were forced to put their ballot into a separate box to be hand-counted at a later point.
In Virginia, where there were multiple close Congressional races, some precincts counted a higher number of votes than the number of ballots that were actually cast.
Incumbent Abigail Spanberger, D-Va. won her race by less than 13,000 votes, and incumbent Jennifer Wexton, D-Va. won her race by less than 20,000 votes.
Both races have discrepancies with regard to the number of votes counted compared to the number of actual ballots cast.
Just The News Reports–
Election machines reported more votes than physical ballots cast in two precincts in an influential Virginia county, raising concerns about election administration in the midterms after the county’s former registrar was charged earlier this year with multiple election-related offenses.
In Prince William County, one of Virginia’s most important electoral counties, at least two precincts had more ballots reported on the machine scanners’ tallies of ballots than were tabulated by election officers, according to a report by Electoral Process Education Corporation (EPEC), a nonprofit that performs election data analysis.
A board of directors member of EPEC told Just the News on Monday that precincts P-612 and P-104 were the ones affected by the discrepant vote totals. P-612 is in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District, and P-104 is in the 10th.
Democratic Rep. Abigail Spanberger won the 7th CD against GOP nominee Yesli Vega, and Democratic Rep. Jennifer Wexton won reelection in the 10th CD against Republican candidate Hung Cao.
