Voting Machine Disabled After Allegedly Failing to Show Greg Abbott's Name on Ballot

Election officials in San Antonio, Texas are examining a disabled voting machine after it allegedly left Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott’s name off of the ballot. 

Earlier on Tuesday, the machine was being utilized in Bexar County’s First Chinese Baptist Church of San Antonio.

Bexar County Election Administrator Jacque Callan told local media outlet KENS 5 that the machine was “experiencing issues.” According to Callan, the machine has a counter which will allow election officials to determine exactly how many voters used it. 

At this point, there is no explanation as to how — or why — the glitch occurred. 

A Bexar County resident posted a supposed image of the ballot, with Abbott’s name absent, on Instagram.

Earlier today a Bexar County Election Administrator’s Office spokeswoman told Breitbart Texas, “We’re aware of the situation and trying to resolve it.”
