Pennsylvania – A Luzerne County Council majority on Wednesday voted to appoint the county District Attorney’s office to investigate Dominion after the voting machines mislabeled Republican ballots in last week’s primary election.
“Without integrity in our elections, the public cannot trust the remainder of our democratic process,” County DA Sam Sanguedolce said.
The Times Leader reported:
Councilman Walter Griffith proposed the DA election investigation request, citing an on-screen ballot mislabeling error and other problems that caused many voters to be “disenfranchised and concerned about the integrity of the election process.”
It was unanimously approved by all 10 council members present, with Linda McClosky Houck absent.
County DA Sam Sanguedolce was not in attendance but said Tuesday night his office will investigate any allegations of potential criminal conduct relating to the May primary.
He said his predecessor, Stefanie Salavantis, created an Election Fraud Task Force that remains intact and will review anything forwarded to the office.
Dominion Voting Systems blamed “human error” for voting machines mislabeling Luzerne County Republican ballots in last week’s primary.
Republican ballots were mislabeled as Democrat ones on electronic screen at polling locations.
But Dominion says it wasn’t their fault.
“Dominion deeply regrets the confusion this error caused,” Nicole Nollette, the executive vice president of operations at Dominion said.
“These machines — their credibility is lost,” said Election Board member Missy Thomas on Monday. “The system is compromised.”
