(SNews) – A “full investigation” has been launched by authorities in New Jersey after evidence of double-counted votes in the 2022 general election has emerged.
Officials in New Jersey have announced a formal investigation into the general election results from Monmouth County.
The state’s Attorney General Matthew Platkin issued a statement that confirmed a “full investigation” has been launched.
Platkin argues that the investigation “is warranted” due to the evidence at hand.
“Protecting New Jerseyans’ right to vote in a free and fair election is paramount to our democracy, and ensuring the integrity of that process is essential,” Platkin said.
“Based on public reports regarding the 2022 general election in Monmouth County, a full investigation is warranted to encourage and preserve public trust in our elections, including recommendations for reforms to benefit the conduct of contests statewide.”
Some votes in the county were double-counted, “possibly flipping the outcome of a local school board race,” according to a report from Just the News.
Former Attorney General Peter Harvey and his law firm were retained to investigate Monmouth County’s election processes.
The report explains:
The county’s voting vendor Election Systems and Software said that the results of a non-partisan school board race were altered due to an error in Ocean Township, which has a population of nearly 28,000, according to census data.
Katrina Granger, a company official, confirmed the double counting in an interview.
“A technician inadvertently loaded votes twice in error,” Granger said.
“Typically our software blocks this from happening.
“Unfortunately, a human error in a July software reinstallment missed the step that would have flagged the mistake.”
Just the News notes that the top three school board candidates were winners of seats.
However, candidate Jeffrey Weinstein, in fourth initially with 3,503 votes, jumped ahead of No. 3 Steve Clayton after the error was corrected.
Clayton said the development shocked him and he was exploring his options.
The 2020 election results were rife with questions after Mark Zuckerberg handed out some $400 million through foundations to local elections officials.
The money, known as “Zuckerbucks,” was often used to recruit voters from Democrat precincts.
To make matters worse, Big Tech and corporate media companies worked together to conceal accurate, but very damaging, information about the Biden family’s international business operations.
In the run-up to the 2020 election, reports on Hunter Biden’s laptop exposed deals that include massive payments from America’s enemies, China and Russia.
These reports were buried to protect then-candidate Joe Biden’s presidential election campaign.
Surveys and studies have suggested either of those election influence operations probably changed the presidential race winner from President Donald Trump to Biden.
In the New Jersey case, Sundeep Iver, of the division of Civil Rights, said, “It is critical that our elections comply with all applicable civil rights laws.
“Voters in New Jersey deserve no less.
“I am grateful for Attorney General Platkin’s continued leadership in protecting the right to vote.”
