Maryland Decertifies Results of Recent Primary - 296 Delegates at bay pending inquiry

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND’S PRIMARY RESULTS DECERTIFIED BY STATE BOARD, PROVISIONAL BALLOTS FOUND NOT COUNTED, OTHER IRREGULARITIES
by DAWN PAPPLE * MAY 12, 2016 * Inquisitr.com

Maryland held its primary elections two weeks ago, but on Thursday, the State Board of Elections ordered the decertification of the Baltimore primary election results. The election results in Baltimore had been certified on Monday, but a precinct-by-precinct review of voter irregularities is now underway.

The State Board of Elections called for the decertification of the Baltimore election results after 80 provisional ballots were discovered uncounted. Linda H. Lamone, the State Board of Elections administrator, told WJZ that there were also a number of discrepancies at more than one precinct of a different nature. There were a number of people who had checked in at their polling locations, who either never cast their ballots or their ballots are unaccounted for.

“They are supposed to report that information to me before the election is certified,” Lamone explained. “Baltimore City did it I think about the same time and when we looked at the reconciliation we saw that there were some discrepancies that we weren’t happy with.”

Additionally, election watchdogs claimed that there were late openings at polling locations, voters who had been turned away at their polling locations, voters who had been misdirected by poll workers, a rush to train enough election judges to handle any voting issues, and data files of the actual election results that went missing for one day.

Consequently, all 296 precincts are now under review.

2. Every effort should be made to count every vote

When we did it in the Franken recount, we found ballots in a malfunctioning machine that was replaced during the election.

3. And coincidentally, whenever the results are actually reviewed...

Bernie manages to pick up a few more delegates. Isn't that strange.

4. Sad to see the state disenfranchies the city

 

Washington state has the same sort of problem. The state hates Seattle.

11. Amazing isn't it.

 

I hear Canada has very few problems counting their paper ballots,
that can easily be recounted as needed.

But somehow we stupid Americans just can never "get it right".

13. LOL

 

Yes, I saw that earlier today. Thanks for the link.

It is sickening & deplorable how gullible we are, to ever believe for a minute that it was a
good idea for election officials to be "outsourcing" elections to private corporations with
"proprietary secret codes" not even the election officials can see.

8. This is Baltimore City. Hillary will probably pick up votes.

Maryland finally went to paper ballots and optical scanners (and got rid of the electronic machines) for this election. The change caused some confusion, in addition to other logistical fuckups, but fortunately, actual votes can be counted.
