The New Jersey Governor race was called for the Democrat incumbent Phil Murphy but the allegations about the voting irregularities will go on!
The Republican National Committee has sent 20 elections lawyers to New Jersey! Suspicions over voting irregularities in Bergen and Essex county have made headlines across the nation!
The latest example of voting machine malfeasance comes via the New Jersey governor’s race, where one of the closest contests in the nation has been marred by voting anomalies. This includes technical glitches with electronic poll books and reports that voting machines suddenly went down on Election Day. The votes on those machines were not even counted.
Essex County Clerk Christopher Durkin says he has a lot of work ahead of him after the votes from 56 districts were not counted Tuesday night in the county.

“It’s a mix but they are mostly in Newark, in East Orange, Irvington, Maplewood, Montclair, the majority of those 56 districts,” says Durkin.
Durkin says you can call it poll worker error. There will be an investigation as to why it happened. He asks New Jersey residents not to jump to conclusions as to why the 56 voting machines were shut down last night without being counted first.
But a video of a woman who arrived this morning shows that there were other problems with the voting machines!
In the video that she said it was censored by social media you can clearly see her trying to vote for Republican candidate Ciattarelli but she can’t and when she tries to press any other option the touchscreen works!
She said that she wasn’t the only one that experienced this kind of problem. There were others who claimed that the electronic touch screens were not recording their attempted votes for Jack Ciattarelli.
We can’t tell for sure if this was a glitch or an error or just that the voting machine was not working properly but the close race created a lot of controversies!
The video that was posted by this woman sounds very familiar with what the former Virginia Governor said in an older interview.

Previous similar problems with the voting machines were explained by PolitiFact who alleged that the error shown in these videos is a common problem with older voting devices, which are still used across the country.
“Around 40 states have voting machines that are a decade old or older,” J. Alex Halderman, a computer science professor at the University of Michigan, told PolitiFact. “There are reports of machines misbehaving in this manner after almost every election.”
