Responds To Irregularities.

Nearly 20% of voting centers in Maricopa County, AZ are experiencing
issues, according to officials.

The Maricopa County Recorder's office says technicians have been
dispatched to fixed broken tabulation machines.

tabulator isn't immediately taking the ballot," said County Recorder

Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Kale says she's getting
"flooded with calls" from frustrated voters.

    I am getting flooded with calls and text messages from people who
are having trouble voting all over Maricopa County.

    THIS is why we must reform our elections.

    If you have already checked in at a Maricopa County voting
location where the tabulators do not work, you can (1) wait for your
ballot to be tabulated on site, (2) ask to use the handicapped voting
machine, or (3) leave your ballot in a box to be counted later. (2/2)

They only had two years to figure this out... Unless of course this is
a feature, not a bug.

    I'd like to note once again that Brazil -- with a population of
similar size to the US (especially with mandatory voting and a voting
age of 16) -- counted all votes nationwide in every race within 3
hours after the polls closed. Every race was decided that night.

Meanwhile, every single Dominion voting machine is down across Mercer
County, New Jersey, according to officials.

    Voting machines are currently down, vote on a standard ballot

"The Board of Elections has advised the county of issues with voting
machines. Poll workers will be on hand to walk voters through the
process. The board is working with Dominion, the machine maker, to
resolve the issue," reads a notice posted on Facebook, ABC6 reports.

    For the second election cycle in a row, I go to vote and the
machines are not working. Had to submit a provisional ballot. You have
to do better Mercer County, NJ. The poll workers were wonderful amid
the chaos.

In response, the New Jersey Republican State Committee (NJGOP) says
they're aware of the issue, and that voters can still cast their
ballots on paper.

    "On behalf of our NJGOP legal counsel and election integrity team,
I want to make crystal clear to the voters of Mercer County that in
spite of reported problems with scanners on voting machines in Mercer
County, this issue does not affect their voting experience at all.
Voters will still enter their polling place, cast their vote, and
insert the paper ballot into the machine as they normally would."

    Voters can be completely rest assured that NJGOP is ensuring
voters' rights are protected at all phases of the process and that
their vote counts -Tom Szymanski, Executive Director NJGOP
