While polling data makes it appear pro-life Republicans will take over the Senate from pro-abortion Democrats, whether votes cast on Election Day line up with those polls in another question. And one of the worries some pro-life voters have is whether illegal voting will prevent pro-life candidates from winning.
In Virginia, early reports are showing that some voters may be having problems getting votes registered properly for the candidates they support. One news report indicates voters have experienced voting errors — including voters who say votes for a Republican candidate have been registered for his Democrat opponent.
According to a Virginia Congressman, he has received numerous reports from voters of poll machine irregularities at voting precincts in Virginia’s Second Congressional District.
U.S. Representative Scott Rigell’s office released the following statement regarding the issue:
We have received numerous, credible reports of poll machine irregularity at voting precincts in Virginia’s Second Congressional District. This is very troubling. It is critical that every voter verifies the final summary page before pushing the “cast ballot” option.
Rigell’s Office released a video taken with a voter’s cell phone at Tallwood High School in Virginia Beach shows the voter touch the ballot box for Rigell, but the other candidate’s name is checked.
In a news conference Tuesday he calls the issue “deeply troubling.” He goes on to say, “This issue is real and we’re not even halfway through the day. It’s very troubling… It has our full attention and we’re going to see what unfolds.”
