The Pennsylvania District Attorney on Wednesday launched an investigation into rejected ballots during Tuesday’s primary.
Elections officials in a Pennsylvania County on Tuesday were working to resolve a problem dealing with voting machines rejecting ballots in all 77 precincts.
Voting machines in Fayette County were only rejecting Republican ballots, according to Chris Varney, Judge of Elections.
At first, Varney was under the impression that there was a problem will the barcodes on all ballots, but it turns out only Republican ballots are being rejected.
CBS Pittsburgh reported late Tuesday: The Fayette County solicitor said the courts have granted an emergency petition, which means all the ballots that weren’t scanned will be hand-counted by the judge of elections at each individual precinct once the polls close at 8 p.m.
The Fayette County DA is launching an investigation into the ballot issues from Tuesday’s primary and he’s also looking into a possible election violation.
