Election Judges

Election Judge Problems 

Plagued the 2016 Baltimore City Primary

When the election results were decertified it highlighted multiple areas of failure. 

Question #1

 

Did Election Judges working in the 2016 Baltimore City Primary

perform their jobs correctly?


 

Answer

IF THE JUDGES DID THEIR JOBS CORRECTLY THERE WOULD BE 

NO DISCREPANCIES

IN THE VOTE COUNTS

but 286  of  296 PRECINCTS HAD DISCREPANCIES!

# of voters checked in SHOULD # of Voter Authority Cards issued SHOULD = # of ballots cast

                                            

BUT THOSE COUNTS WEREN'T EQUAL IN MOST PRECINCTS
