Piling problem on top of problem, now there’s word that voters in Georgia who showed up to vote at their local polling place were told they already cast a ballot.
Todd Saine walked in and handed the staff his voter identification, only to find out that a vote had already been recorded in his name, TMZ is reporting.
Saine said that he was forced to wait in line with “many others” who were experiencing the same problem. Eventually, Saine said, a county election board official came over to the group to sort out the mess.
The elections official asked Saine several questions and pulled out a computer screen that showed that he, in fact, had voted.
The official eventually deleted the previous vote and allowed Saine to cast his ballot – for Donald Trump. From TMZ:
We spoke with the Director of Elections and Registration in Columbus, who confirmed there was an issue with the electronic poll lists, and they’ve now switched to using paper lists to check in voters for the rest of the day. Todd says there were dozens of people affected, but the Director says it was 5 to 10 people.
The official says no votes were compromised. Todd seems less than convinced.
