Georgia Gubernatorial Election Is Being Manipulated As Abrams Votes Are Being Changed To Kemp: Report
The Georgia NAACP has reportedly filed a complaint with the Georgia Secretary of State after claiming that some voting machines have been changing ballots of those who voted for gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) to votes for her Republican opponent Brian Kemp.
According to USA Today, who received documents from the civil rights chapter, the NAACP alleged certain voting machines in Bartow County and Dodge County have failed to initially register the votes correctly.
“We’ve experienced this before,” Phyllis Blake, president of the Georgia NAACP, told the publication. “They ended up taking these old dilapidated machines out of service. The ones giving the problems. They should have been replaced about 10 years ago.”
The complaints filed so far were on behalf of eight voters, according to reports.
Pamela Grimes, one of those eight voters, told USA Today that she tried to cast a vote for Abrams several times at a polling site in Bartow County before the machine allowed her to unmark the box for Kemp and vote for Abrams.
“I was not going to leave until everything was the way I wanted it,’’ Grimes said. “If I had not been focused, my vote would have went for him.”
She noted that she has since warned other voters “to pay attention at the polls.”
Kemp has already received backlash after 53,000 voter registration applications, a majority of which came from black voters, were being placed on hold.
