New Jersey Race Flips After Voting Machine Irregularities Detected

A local school board race in New Jersey has appeared to flip after electronic voting machine errors were discovered during an investigation into election irregularities.

The tabulation errors occurred in Monmouth County where Steve Clayton initially prevailed over Jeffrey Weinstein by 20 votes in the initial count in the race for a school board seat in Ocean Township. According to the new tally, Weinstein actually won by one vote.

The errors, which involved double counting of votes across four municipalities, were discovered while the Board of Elections investigated another alleged issue during the election, according to the New Jersey Globe.

Clayton, who began his term on the board this month, said he will let the process play out. “I will let the process play itself out,” he said. “I’m laser-focused on what the voters sent me to do.”

In the initial count, Clayton had 3,523 votes in comparison to Weinstein’s 3,503. Monmouth County’s voting machine vendor, Election Systems and Software (ES&S) has reportedly “acknowledged” that mistake in their system, according to the Globe.

ES&S scans and counts election ballots in over 30% of New Jersey counties. The errors could change vote totals in Belmar, Fair Haven, and Tinton Falls, but are not expected to flip any races.

Sussex County Clerk Jeff Parrott said he was “disappointed” that the state’s attorney general’s office has not notified him or any other clerks of the errors discovered in Monmouth County.

“Nobody has brought it to my attention. I’m disappointed and dismayed,” Parrott said. “It’s unacceptable to me.”

The race between Weinstein, who had served as school board president, and Clayton was tight on Election Day, as the two were only separated by 25 votes with mail-in-ballots left to be counted.

“I will wait for all remaining ballots to be counted,” Clayton said at the time. “I am very grateful for all the support I received, and if my lead holds, I look forward to working with my fellow board members on behalf of our students.”

    So we’re seeing little insignificant ‘corrections’ here and there coming out of the woodwork – PROVING that there IS Voter Fraud/Voter Tabulation Mistakes that DO HAPPEN, when we are told over and over that ‘it doesn’t, it’s not real…’ Yet here it is, day after day, over and over, happening in place after place. And we NEVER HEARD of this happening before!!!

    And I can’t help but WONDER at people saying ‘these don’t matter – look how small that is! who cares?’

    But what they don’t seem to GET is that, IF this CAN happen, then what prevents it happening on a much LARGER SCALE, or from it being DONE ON PURPOSE by some ‘corrupt persons’ interested in a CERTAIN OUTCOME, and willing to do anything to make that happen? If these things CAN REALLY just ‘happen’ ‘accidentally’, so easily, and no one ‘knows’ how it happened… What about ALL the OTHER things we saw in 2020 and 2022, that were NOT little, and NOT accidental, and NOT ‘just in one place’???????????? How can anyone just decide NOT to look into all those OTHER incidents???

    What about all the locations where Dem Election Supervisors and Officials either kicked out or didn’t let GOP ‘poll watchers’ be present when they were SUPPOSED TO BE LAWFULLY PRESENT??? What was going on that they didn’t want them to see? What about the Dem precincts where the GOP ‘process monitors’ were kept at such a distance, behind glass walls, and told to go home before the ‘counting’ was over for the night, that they COULDN’T SEE ANYTHING, which was what the election officials in charge WANTED??? and WHY would they WANT that??? That right there is ENOUGH for ANY JUDGE to want to KNOW what’s going on at that precinct – yet they STILL DIDN’T!!!

    How can anyone now say that our Elections are secure, when they are ANYTHING but secure or safe, or True???
