Blake: Primary voting process rife with errors

Posted

Tuesday I went to vote. I signed in to get my ballot and stood there 20 minutes and my ballot wasn’t printed. I canceled that ballot and got my first reprint.

I was marking my choices until I got to state senators and reps and it was the wrong district. Canceled that ballot and got my second reprint and took it to vote, I looked at the ballot and it was already marked for Mack McGuire in a perfect oval.

Did it print that way? Hmmm.

Canceled that ballot and got my third reprint and it was the wrong party and no I didn’t make a mistake. Canceled that ballot and had to get a provisional ballot. They called my name for my provisional and they had two ballots for me.

I’m marking my provisional ballot and I hear my name called again, my full name. I fired off an email to the Secretary of State to complain about what happened.

I don’t trust the 2020 results, I believe Trump won and have serious doubts about this primary election. Arizona voting leaves a lot to be desired.
