Why Did The Voting Machines Malfunction In Virginia?
Virginia's 7th & 10th districts had big problems with no explanations
Voting machines in two precincts of Virginia recorded more votes than actually existed in the 2022 midterm elections.
According to a new report by an election data analysis non-profit called Electoral Process Education Corporation (EPEC): In at least two precincts in Prince William County (PWC) the number of physical ballots cast and accumulated was different than the machine scanner’s tally of ballots, as reported by election officers. The numbers must align as part of the precinct’s tracking of total ballots cast at the voting location.
Here’s what happened in precinct 612 in Virginia’s 7th district:
Election officers observed differences in ballot counts of voters who were checked in with pollbooks compared to the actual number of ballots in the machines throughout the day. When the election officers went to close out the polling station, they discovered a ballot scanner with 27 more ballots represented in the electronic total than physical ballots present inside the machine’s collection bin. The scanner reported 531 ballots scanned and recorded, but only 504 physical ballots were in the collection bin underneath the scanner.
