Georgia Democratic Voters Report Ballot Switch Shenanigans
March 1, 2016

Disturbing news out of Georgia, where Democrats coming to vote are being given Republican ballots.

“I show up, I fill out the paper and I give it to the man at the counter,” Fleener told ValdostaToday. “Next, I was given a card to insert into the machine, and when I pulled up the screen I realized I was given the wrong ballot.”

Fleener said she looked around and noticed others were having the same issue.

“Turns out that anyone voting Democrat received a Republican ballot,” Fleener reported. “After making some phone calls, we were told we could fix it, but we were showing up in the system as voted when none of us had casted our ballots.”

According to Valdosta Today's report, those voters were given provisional ballots, which may not count at all in the long run.

Just your Republican Party at work.
