Report: Vote Count ‘Error’ Discovered, Flips Seat from Dem to GOP

There seem to be a lot of claims and evidence, in some cases, or computer tabulation glitches and other counting errors going around this election cycle.

According to The Connecticut Mirror, Republican state Rep. Craig Fishbein has been declared the winner over his Democratic challenger Jim Jinks after a “human error” was discovered.

“The Wallingford town clerk, Barbara Thompson, said Tuesday her office discovered that no votes had been recorded in the state election reporting system from the Yalesville Elementary School, one of nine polling places in the 90th District of Cheshire and Wallingford,” the paper reported.

“I can’t answer if it was a clerical error or a computer error in the elections management system,” Thompson said. “All I know is we caught it yesterday and amended it.”

Connecticut’s election reporting system now shows Fishbein leading Jinks, 7,058 to 7,037 votes.

Because the race is so close, there will be a recount.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced on Wednesday there will be a hand recount of the presidential election results in the Peach State.

In Antrim County, Michigan, it was originally declared that former Vice President Joe Biden had defeated President Donald Trump in the county by more than 3,000 votes.

After the error was discovered, the updated numbers showed that Trump won by nearly 2,500 votes.

Meanwhile, Republican Oakland County Commissioner Adam Kochenderfer learned he had won, not lost, his re-election bid after a counting error was discovered.

One can be certain that if all these glitches and “errors” were going against Democrats, they would be demanding fair probes into the ballots just like Republicans have been.

According to a new survey, 70 percent of Republicans do not believe the presidential election was “free and fair” even though multiple news outlets have called it for Joe Biden.

Before the election, in the same Politico/Morning Consult poll, 35 percent of Republicans thought the vote would not be free and fair.

More Democrats voiced trust in the election, 90 percent saying they thought the results were “free and fair”, up 52 percent from the pre-election poll.

Among Republicans who thought the election wasn’t fair, 78 percent thought mail-in ballots spurred extensive voter fraud, while 72 percent believed ballot tampering occurred.

Among Republican voters surveyed by Politico and Morning Consult, 84 percent said the election helped Biden.

Before election day, 18 percent of Republicans said they thought results would be unreliable.

Now, that number has surged to 64 percent. Among Democrats, 86 percent said they trusted the results.

Republicans thought results in swing states were especially questionable, particularly in Pennsylvania, which counted ballots for four days before Biden won it.

Republican-to-Democrat distrust in Pennsylvania’s results was 62 percent to 8 percent.

GOP voters voiced similar distrust in Wisconsin, Nevada, Georgia, and Arizona.

But Republicans were divided on whether the winner would change under Trump’s legal onslaught. Of such voters, 38 percent said they thought results would be reversed and 45 percent did not.
