California Voters Told They Already Voted; Election Integrity Issues Surface in California

Combined Shape

Yesterday as Californians headed into the polls to cast their vote in person, they were told they had already voted. The residents of San Fernando Valley went into their polling place in Woodland Hills but were denied their chance to vote in person after machines indicated that about 70% of the voters had already cast their ballot.

Emon Afshar and his wife attempted to vote at 6543 Corbin Ave in Woodland Hills, CA, when they were denied an in-person vote but cast a provisional ballot. In an email he wrote to Fox 11 that is making the rounds on social media, Afshar claimed that their “names showed that someone [had] already voted” for them.

The email claimed that “on top of that, they said that about 70% of the voters who showed up experienced the same thing.” He said that he spoke to an election supervisor, Vincent McCormack. Afshar said that McCormack “has already reported the issue and that other locations are experiencing the same problem.”

Newsmax correspondent Logan Ratick interviewed Afshar about the issues he and his wife experienced while attempting to vote yesterday. Afshar successfully recorded the interaction with Supervisor McCormack. The recording catches the moment McCormack admits to Afshar that 70% of the voters’ votes had been previously cast without their knowledge.

“It was not a fun event. We were frustrated. [We] felt like something was stolen from us. And I was not going to stay quiet, and neither was my wife,” Afshar said about his experience voting in the California recall.

Afshar and his wife weren’t the only ones who experienced issues trying to vote. Other voters attempting to cast their ballot at the El Camino Real Charter High School in Woodland Hills said they were also stopped from voting in person because the system indicated someone had already voted for them.

KTLA reported that “West Hills resident Estelle Bender, 88, said she was far from the only person who was being told incorrectly that they had already voted.”

The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder’s officer told KTLA that the polling locations were experiencing technical issues with the election equipment. The spokesman said, “After troubleshooting the issue, the equipment at the locations was replaced, and voting continued.”

But Estelle Bender said the only being able to cast a provisional ballot made her leave feeling “really angry.”
