UPDATE: Northampton County PA Provides Excuse For Voting Machine ‘Errors’

Earlier today, I explained why nothing except for actual computers should be computerized—analog is best for most applications.

The voting machine problems currently being reported in Northampton County Pennsylvania are another perfect example illustrating my point.

Citizens and journalists have all sounded the alarm on the machines that are ‘flipping’ votes on the digital tabulator while providing citizens with a paper copy that does not match the digital vote.

Sounds fishy, doesn’t it? And all too familiar too—we saw stories like this all over the country during the rigged 2020 election and the issues only seemed to be one-way.

Now, Northampton County has provided an update on the voting machine issue—they’re claiming the problems came down to a ‘coding error.’

I want to thank them for explaining the obvious, now, why was the machine coded in this way? Was that an error too, or intentional? That’s the real question. Here’s what we currently know:

Popular conservative influencer George reported: “Election officials in Pennsylvania have discovered an issue with voting machines. Voters in Northampton County are getting their votes switched by the machines.

Officials said that when a voter would select ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on their ballot for one of the candidates up for retention to the PA Superior Court, the vote was recorded on the paper ballot and on the machine for the other candidate.”

According to The Associated Press:

The issue affected all the county’s voting machines in use Tuesday, estimated at more than 300.

The Pennsylvania Department of State said the problem was isolated to the two retention votes in Northampton County and that no other races statewide were affected.

The county obtained a court order Tuesday after the problem was discovered that allowed the machines to continue to be used.

Charles R. Downs reminded readers: “Northampton County is a critical Pennsylvania swing county that will likely decide the 2024 presidential election in Pennsylvania. Trump held a rally in Northampton 8 days before the 2020 election.”

Citizen Free Press echoed the other outlets: “If a voter cast a Yes” vote for one of the incumbents, but a “No” vote for the other, the votes come out flipped, Northampton County Executive McClure said.”

Just The News added:

The issue only affects the two retention votes and was first noticed by voters who checked the printed voting records that the touchscreen machines produced, according to McClure. He added that votes will be corrected during tabulation.
