‘Holy S— this state is corrupt!’ a Vermont election worker tells us.Our source describes a loophole that might allow additional ballots to be submitted without anyone noticing.
Voters cast different ballots for different elections and referendums. Although towns are supposed to track how many of each ballot are requested, some voting stations do not, our source says. At these locations there would be little to prevent corrupt election workers from ballot stuffing.
Voting takes place in 246 municipalities, including 130 towns with less than 1,000 voters.
This “messy and disorganized” system is just asking for fraud, our source says.
Director of Elections Kathy Scheele said ballot tracking was not an issue: “Courts know they have to reconcile the number of ballots handed out with the number submitted at the end of the night.”
Scheele also said Vermont’s small town voting system served as a check against fraud, as everyone in a small town knows each other.
