Stefanik campaign statement on Washington County Election Day integrity issues

News release

GLENS FALLS, NY –  Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik’s campaign released the following statement regarding serious election integrity issues in certain polling locations in Washington County:

“The Elise for Congress campaign has been notified of serious election integrity issues in certain polling locations in Washington County. The Washington County Board of Elections had an error in printing ballots for certain polling locations in election districts in Argyle, Cambridge, Dresden, Easton, Fort Ann, Granville, and Fort Edward. Voters who cast ballots at these locations this morning were directed to place ballots that are not being read by the machine into the emergency lockbox. The Elise for Congress campaign is working directly with the Republican National Committee and is exploring all legal options to ensure every legal vote, and only legal votes, are accurately and lawfully counted. Election integrity, rule of law, and transparency are of the utmost importance in our elections and our campaign is working diligently to obverse and ensure the security of such ballots. Washington County has assured us that they are printing new ballots and are delivering or have delivered them to the election districts to address this issue. We need every voter to turn out and vote. We continue to encourage any voter who observes any irregularities at their polling location to contact the New York Election integrity Hotline: 518-851-8007.”
