Callers to KLBJ report ballot irregularities
People voting for Donald Trump in today’s Super Tuesday Texas Primary are seeing their ballots changed to show a vote for Marco Rubio.
Numerous callers flooded Austin-based radio station KLBJ this morning with reports of mistakes after they tried to vote for Trump.
On this Super Tuesday, voters all around Travis County are getting long lines and glitches to boot.
Some early morning voters today in Travis and Williamson County were shocked to learn…that when they voted for Donald Trump…in the end the system showed they voted for Marco Rubio. Several callers to The Todd & Don Show says they had a similar problem. They say the problem was corrected when they got help from an election worker. Officials says you should always check your ballot before you leave.
The Travis County clerk’s office is warning voters via Twitter that the votetravis dot com website is loading slowly due to high traffic, but some report the site does not load at all. One polling place in far South Austin reported computer freezeups which delayed voting. Reports say other polling places in South Austin and Lakeway experience computer delays. Polls are open until 7PM.
Trump supporters previously accused the Rubio campaign of stealing votes in Iowa after the Florida Senator achieved a surprise third place finish.
If Rubio fails to secure a strong finish in today’s primaries he could be forced to drop out of the race altogether.
Rubio’s Super Pac has poured $1.5 million of its budget into Texas in an effort to take delegates away from home state favorite Ted Cruz.
