SOUTH UNION TOWNSHIP, Pa. — The Fayette County, PA District Attorney’s office is investigating rejected ballots that were widely reported in Tuesday’s local primary elections.
According to KDKA, all 77 precincts in Fayette County dealt with ballots being rejected and not scanning.
“I think suspicious after everything that happened with the presidential election,” voter Lorie Lambie told the station. “I’m a Republican. I went to scan a ballot and it spit it out. I tried three or four times and it kept spitting it out.”
