Several Republican voters in the special California governor recall election showed up to vote and were “told that computers showed they had already cast their ballots.”
- Some San Fernando Valley voters believe they are being wrongly prevented from casting a ballot in the upcoming gubernatorial recall election, according to KTLA 5 News.
- At El Camino Real Charter High School in Woodland Hills, voters say they were told the computers showed them as already having voted, even though they had not.
- One Republican voter, Estelle Bender, told KTLA 5 that she was far from the only person who was being told incorrectly that they had already voted.
- Bender also told KTLA 5 that she confirmed other voters who had been told they had already voted were also Republican.
- Emon Afshar and his wife also voted in Woodland Hills only to discover that their names “showed that someone has already voted for us,” according to Mr. Afshar.
- American Faith reached out to Mr. Afshar to find out if he, like Mrs. Bender, identifies as Republican. “I’d rather not share because I don’t want this situation to get politicized,” Mr. Afshar replied. “I’d rather people stick to the facts.”
- However, Mr. Afshar did reveal that there were multiple voters who reached out to him personally who “experienced the exact same thing” and who “shared with me that they were all Republicans.”
- “And the gentleman who was behind me in the voting line, he was also Republican,” Afshar recalled. “So it’s happening, it seems like, only to Republicans.”
- American Faith asked whether Afshar believes these voting discrepancies are just coincidental or something more nefarious. “I don’t think things like this are coincidental,” Afshar said. “There’s obviously something going on. We just need to dig down deep and see how it happened, when it happened, who it happened to, who did it, and how they voted.”
- “I want to know how the other person voted for me,” he concluded.
- President Donald Trump released a statement asking, “Does anybody really believe the California Recall Election isn’t rigged? Millions and millions of Mail-In Ballots will make this just another giant Election Scam, no different, but less blatant, than the 2020 Presidential Election Scam!”
- Candace Owens—conservative author and talk show host—tweeted that she had received multiple emails from California voters who went to vote for Larry Elder “only to learn that they had already voted.” “This needs to be investigated,” Owens wrote. “It seems like the fix is in.”
- Academy Award winner Jon Voight also took to Twitter to endorse Larry Elder, who is running against CA Gov. Gavin Newsom. “I will stand for Elder,” Voight said in the video post. “I will ask all to vote for this man of dignity.”
