Curious, whenever there’s a voting machine “glitch,” it always seems to favor the Democratic candidate, right?
But one county in Texas put the kibosh on such voting glitches, by taking emergency action.
Breitbart has the story: “Chambers County election officials have executed an emergency protocol to remove all electronic voting machines available during early voting until a software update can be completed to correct problems experienced by straight-ticket voters.”
The office is going to finish software updates on its voting machines in order to ensure whole races and candidates aren’t omitted by those voters who opt for the straight ticket option – an occurrence that was reported by those casting ballots in the Texas 14th Court of Appeals race.
Until the updates are complete, voters will be given paper ballots.
Chambers County sits just east of the largest county in Texas, Harris, and is home to 26,000 registered voters.
County Clerk Heather Hawthorne told Breitbart that since Monday, when polls opened, only one arrived at the ballot boxes without the proper photo identification.
“Breitbart Texas recently reported a similar trend in neighboring Harris County where less than 10 out of more than 67,000 ballots cast lacked ID,” the news outlet said.
Still, the matter underscores what Donald Trump has been saying on the campaign trail for weeks now – that the Clinton campaign will stop at nothing to win the race to the White House, even if that means committing election fraud.
