NEW YORK, NY – It’s not sure whether it was an accident or an intentional act that was caught and then addressed, but 135,000 fake ballots were counted in this week’s New York City mayoral primary election. This comes as 135,000 ballots used for testing purposes remained in the system for the final live vote tally.
“The Board of Elections conducts rigorous and mandatory pre-qualification testing for every election. It has been determined that ballot images used for testing were not cleared from the Election Management System (EMS),” the New York City Board of Election admitted. “EMS produces Cast Vote Records (CVR) from ballot images. RCV software uses the CVR to produce unofficial results.”
The board says it will go in and fix the tabulation, but at this point, the integrity of the election process has now been called into question.
“When the cast vote records were extracted for the first pull of RCV results, it included both test and election night results, producing approximately 135,000 additional records. Board staff has removed all test ballot images from the system and will upload election night results, cross-referencing against election night reporting software for verification. The cast vote record will be re-generated and the RCV rounds will be re-tabulated,” the board reported. “The Board apologizes for the error and has taken immediate measures to ensure the most accurate up to date results are reported.”
Former President Donald J. Trump said he feels there was no mistake and that it’s another example of Democrats trying to circumvent the legal election process.
“Just like in the 2020 Presidential Election, it was announced overnight in New York City that vast irregularities and mistakes were made and that Eric Adams, despite an almost insurmountable lead, may not win the race. The fact is, based on what has happened, nobody will ever know who really won,” Trump said. “The Presidential Race was a Scam and a Hoax with numbers and results being found that are massive, shocking, and determinative. Watch the mess you are about to see in New York City, it will go on forever. They should close the books and do it all over again, the old-fashioned way, when we had results that were accurate and meaningful.”
