Official accepts shocking incompetence in US election

New York: An official election in the US state of Georgia has revealed shocking inefficiencies in the presidential election, such as memory card failure on the election machine, ballots not being uploaded to the system, and postal stamps could not be scanned for counting. .
A polling place scanner in Taylor County had a “corrupt memory card” on Thursday, said Georgia State Voting System Manager Gabriel Sterling.
He said that he saved the paper versions of the ballots kept as backup.
In another county, Lawrence, “they are trying to find out where the 797 ballots are.”
“They thought they had uploaded them and they saw and realized they were not,” Sterling said.
He said that Taylor County had printed postal ballots on a different size paper, which scanned them for counting.
“They are going through the process of copying each of those ballots onto the ballot instruments,” he said, which would have to be verified against the original to be counted.
Sterling explained that under Georgia law, “it is the counties that run the election and the state has 159 counties”,
They said that they are different sizes and have different levels of staff.
Election laws and procedures in the US vary by state.
Sterling said that in Georgia, “the law calls for all absentee (postal) ballots to be accepted by 7pm on Election Day” and when they have problems they must notify voters that they have a “cure” or They have three days to recover.
Trump’s campaign is fighting the count of postal ballots coming after voting stops on election day in some states.
Unlike countries like India, the US does not have a national body to run elections, which are run by states and have another level of complexity when states delegate responsibility to local government entities.
The Federal Election Commission concentrates on election financing, strictly enforcing laws on cash and political contributions rather than dealing with kitty-gritty to conduct elections.
Problems in the grip of US elections have come to light when President Donald pointed out some flaws.
However, Democrats have defended the system and the media, complaining about elections in other countries, denying the US system’s faults almost to their pervasiveness.
