Democrats in Georgia Actually Caused the Long Lines in Urban Areas. Seriously.

They filed a lawsuit and demanded that election voting machines be sequestered by a federal court.

When you hear stories of long lines and voting machine problems in Metro Atlanta, please remember that Democrats caused them. You don't have to believe me. You can believe the actual news media.

In the spring, Democrat activists filed a lawsuit claiming the machines were hackable. In the course of the lawsuit, they insisted that a large number of the machines be sequestered in federal court as evidence. Unlike their claims, the Secretary of State's office does not actually involve itself with voting machines and day to day election operations. Those are all handled at the county level by county officials in Cobb County, Georgia.

As a result of the lawsuit, 550 machines were sequestered and kept out of Election Day in Cobb County.

In Fulton and DeKalb Counties, both Democrat strongholds, the lawsuit kept 700 machines out of polling locations in Fulton County and 585 out of DeKalb County. Additional machines were down for maintenance in those areas and, again, that is on the counties, not the Secretary of State, and both of those counties are controlled by Democrats.

The voting irregularities story is a manufactured story that the media willingly bought and then blamed Republicans. It is so telling that the local media in Georgia ignored these stories and the national media ran with them.

In Western PA, I know of several different voting places where people who tried to vote a straight Republican ballot with one button watched as their votes were changed to Democrats. The ones who realized it were able to get it corrected (they think) but how many didn't check it...especially elderly voters &/or people who waited 2 hours and were just ready to go home so assumed they were done & didn't look closely? They are saying this was just a "calibration" issue. But why do they only go R to D? I really think we should stop allowing people to vote all one party...go through and vote for each person and check your ballots closely.

"Additional machines were down for maintenance in those areas and, again, that is on the counties, not the Secretary of State, and both of those counties are controlled by Democrats."

Erick, are you implying here that the members of both the Fulton and DeKalb County Boards of Elections are majority Democrat? If not, since you know that would be false, what is your point in mentioning this, given its the County BOE (under the regulation and supervision of the Secretary of State), not the County government, that manages those elections?

My precinct had a bad battery for the ballot issuing laptop. That created a huge backup.
