Some San Fernando Valley voters think they are being wrongly prevented from casting a ballot in the upcoming gubernatorial recall election.
At El Camino Real Charter High School in Woodland Hills, some voters say they were told the computers showed them as already having voted, even though they had not.
West Hills resident Estelle Bender, 88, said she was far from the only person who was being told incorrectly that they had already voted.
Every insider on the recall proponent side has said to watch Los Angeles County. So far, between the Torrance drug addict who had 300 ballots in his car, the women stealing ballots out of mailboxes in Valley Village using a USPS master key, and now this incident, they are not off the mark.
In addition to friends of hers who experienced the issue and two other women outside the polling place, Bender said that inside, “the man next to me was arguing the same thing.”
Bender said she filled out a provisional ballot and “left really angry.”
Can you blame her? There really should be measures in place to verify a registered voter immediately. Like… let me think… Voter ID!
Bender added that, to her knowledge, many of those affected by this issue are self-identified Republicans, and she’s suspicious.
“I’d still like to know how I voted,” Bender said.
