The 2020 election was rife with problems.
Many of those same problems cropped up again in the 2022 Midterm elections.
And Donald Trump was pounding the table after one shocking election scandal.
After Joe Biden won the 2020 Presidential election, the Democrats and their media allies swore up and down that it was the most secure election in history.
But that isn’t what they were saying before the election.
Senators Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar raised concerns about voting machines, and years earlier, former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and former President Jimmy Carter both said that universal mail-in voting would be a disaster for a Presidential election.
Magically, all of those concerns went away after Biden secured narrow victory in a handful of Democratic strongholds in swing states.
But issues revolving around voting procedures reared their ugly head again in the Midterms.
Arizona officials are mired in an investigation regarding ballot printing errors and possible voter disenfranchisement.
Voting machine problems hit New Jersey
And now a New Jersey school board race might be flipped because of a voting machine error.
Election Systems & Software (ES&S) machines apparently experienced a malfunction that impacted four different races in Monmouth County.
And a school board race between Steve Clayton and Jeffrey Weinstein might’ve been flipped.
Clayton initially defeated Weinstein by 20 votes—3,523 to 3,503—but the corrected tally has Weinstein up by a single vote.
Supposedly the error was a result of a USB drive being inserted twice.
ES&S spokeswoman Katina Granger said, “In July of 2022, upon request, ES&S technicians were sent to Monmouth County to investigate reports of slow performance on the county’s internal network. During troubleshooting, technicians uninstalled and reinstalled the county’s election management software…A human procedural error during reinstallation excluded a step, which optimizes the system database and ensures USB flash media cannot be read twice during the results loading process. Because the database was not optimized, the user was not notified when the USB flash media were loaded twice into the results reporting module.”
Human error is always a factor, which is why the “most secure election in history” narrative was always flimsy.
Unfortunately, Democrats do not seem too interested in improving election integrity.
They want the guardrails to be as porous as possible.
People need to know that their vote matters, so these kinds of mistakes must be mitigated at all costs.
