Here we go again.
Republicans voting early in Montgomery County, Texas say voting straight party GOP ticket and hitting enter resulted in a vote for Democrat Beto O’Rourke rather than Republican Ted Cruz in one of the pivotal U.S. Senate races in the 2018 election.
Voters in Montgomery County, north of Houston and in Clear Lake, Texas, another Houstonian suburb in nearby Harris County, reached out to the Shad Olson Show reporting voting irregularities and anomalies saying that after electronically selecting straight party Republican ticket (a voting machine option meant to save voters time compared with voting each race individually) their ballots instead showed a vote for Beto O’Rourke, the heavily socialist Democrat challenging U.S. Senator Ted Cruz in this crucial midterm election to decide which party controls the U.S. Senate and Congress in the second half of Donald Trump’s first term.
“I always vote straight Republican ticket and I’m certainly voting that way in this November midterm,” one voter said, requesting their identity be withheld.
The Texas Secretary of State’s Office has issued a statement about the issue.
“As a reminder, voters should always carefully check their review screen before casting their ballots,” states the advisory issued by Keith Ingram, director of elections with the Texas Secretary of State’s office. “If a voter has any problems, they should notify a poll worker immediately so the issues can be addressed and reported.”
“I hit the button for straight party ticket and hit enter and when my ballot came out, I happened to notice that my vote for U.S. Senate had been cast for Beto O’Rourke and not for Ted Cruz.” the voter said.
“It’s obvious that’s the most important race on the ballot and to have that happen is more than just a little suspicious,” the voter said.
It’s especially strange in Montgomery County, where John McCain won 76% of the vote in 2008 and where they haven’t elected a Democrat President since Lyndon Johnson won 60% of the vote in 1964.
Calls to the Montgomery County auditor were not immediately returned but Shad Olson says he will continue to investigate these accounts to get to the bottom of what’s happening in Texas in what he believes may be the most corrupt election cycle in American history with Democrats desperate for any advantage they can get.
“We’ve seen a succession of false flag events, from the Kavanaugh hearings and Christine Blasey Ford, to a migrant caravan financed by Venezuela and aided by United Nations NGO’s and George Soros, to pipe bombs that appear nothing more than stage props in a political theater production to gain sympathy for Democrats,” Shad Olson said.
“The Deep State and the liberal left absolutely know that they are staring into the face of the death of their movement if they fail to retake the U.S. House and or the Senate in this election. And they are pulling out every trick in the book to gain an advantage.
“It makes it all the more important that voters pay attention and stay aware and report anything unusual that they see or hear regarding voting irregularities in these battleground states. It’s not a matter of IF the Democrats cheat in this election. It’s a matter of whether we can catch them and preserve the integrity of this election process.” Shad Olson said.
