As Georgians head to the polls to vote in the Sixth District special election Tuesday, reports surface that some voting machines were stolen ahead of the vote, and that the thefts were not reported for days.
It is possible, notes Georgia’s Channel 2, for the thieves to manipulate voting results on the stolen machines and then return them. Election officials claim that they are replacing the stolen machines, but the theft has still thrown the race into chaos.
Democratic media darling Jon Ossoff, 30, is vying to flip Tom Price’s district against seventeen other candidates, including eleven Republicans. A run-off is expected between the top two vote-getters Tuesday.
