Report: Trump Votes In PA Switched To Hillary
On Tuesday, according to Pittsburgh CBS Local News, rumors began to fly that voters in the crucial swing state were unable to cast their vote for Republican nominee Donald Trump, instead having their entry switched to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
“Every time I would push a candidate for the Republican party, it would come up for the Democratic candidate,” voter David Drane told CBS.
“I went back, pressed Trump again. Three times I did this, so then I called one of the women that were working the polls over. And she said you must be doing it wrong. She did it three times and it defaulted to Hillary every time,” said another voter, Bobbie Lee Hawranko.
"Election judges in Clinton Township, Butler County confirmed there were issues with two of their eight automated voting machines. Most of the issues came when people tried to vote straight party ticket," notes CBS. "However, others said they specifically wanted to vote for Republican Donald Trump only to see their vote switched before their eyes to Democrat Hillary Clinton."
Pennsylvania State Representative Daryl Metcalfe visited Clinton Township to investigate the reports further.
“If somebody has an issue, they should certainly let the judge of elections at the precinct know and also call their county bureau of elections as folks have done here this morning,” stated Metcalfe.
A young man from Pennsylvania video recorded his trouble with a voting machine that similarly wouldn't allow him to vote Trump. It is unclear which county the voter is from, though it's been rumored that he is from the Philadelphia area—a long way away from Butler County where the two supposedly malfunctioning voting machines are.
According to the voter, he was initially unable to cast his ballot for Trump.
Per the local CBS station, some voters are still unsure if their votes for Trump will be counted at all.
