More than 170 election workers in the county dropped out at the last minute, Tarrant County Democratic Party Chair Allison Campolo told The Intercept.

The party did not know how many voters had been stopped from voting at the county’s Azle location that day. Across the state, Campolo said, both parties had trouble finding election workers on primary day.

But Tarrant County experienced “an extreme number of last minute drop offs of available election judges.”

According to the Texas Tribune, more than a dozen polling locations in Tarrant County were closed for several hours due to staffing shortages among election judges.

Texas is one of several states — also including Missouri, Maryland, and Colorado — to employ election judges to open and run poll locations, manage poll workers, and settle disputes.

Other states call these officials “poll workers” or “election clerks,” but in Texas, where election judges have been used for decades, they’re partisan, and during primary elections, they are appointed by the chair of the county political party holding the primary.

Numerous states had issues with recruiting poll workers at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the number of jurisdictions that reported difficulty in finding enough poll workers increased by 5 percent between the 2016 and 2018 elections.

But the number of sudden dropouts in Tarrant County this month was unusual, according to Campolo.

Sounds like Texas may not be "turning Blue" after all.
 
Another example of government not having their shit together
 
Oh, for goodness' sake!

In 2020, the Republicans charged voter fraud.

In 2022, the Democrats charge voter suppression.

(Will Facebook & Twitter now ban the fake news of the Dems?)

What fake news?
 
Gasp. One election site has a staffing problem and it's national news.

What fake news?
Come out of the echo chamber some time. You're missing half of everything.

SAdly, that has nothing to do with this. The texas government planned this perfectly and it went off exactly as intended, with Democrats being unable to vote.

The founding fathers are spinning in their graves.

So I should shitcan AP & Reuters in favor of Tucker Carlson?

Not going to happen.

This is known as a non sequitur. Your question bears no discernable relationship with the point quoted.

Not asking you to. Fell free to dump AP anyway but Reuters is the goods.
 
Why do we even need election workers given how much the democrats trust voters?

Make voting self-serve.
 

From your link:

"AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas threw out mail votes at an abnormally high rate during the nation’s first primary of 2022, rejecting nearly 23,000 ballots outright under tougher voting rules that are part of a broad campaign by Republicans to reshape American elections, according to an analysis by The Associated Press."

A PRIMARY is not an ELECTION.

Semantics. The point is ballots were trashed. It is just a preview of what will happen when the election takes place.

Can you please explain to me the relationship between the so-called "voter suppression laws" and the inability of the Democratic Party to staff polling locations?
 
The point is that primaries are primaries and are run by political parties.
I can assure you the party running a primary for their candidate is not throwing out ballots so no I do not get your point

Of course not. They are throwing out ballots submitted for the other candidate from the same party running against their candidate in their primary.

The thing about lying thieves is that they are lying thieves.

The rate of rejected mail ballots soared in the March primary elections in Texas — and those rejections disproportionately affected Democrats, especially Black voters in the state’s biggest county.

Nearly 23,000 ballots, or about 13% of all returned mail ballots, were thrown out across 187 Texas counties in the March primaries, according to an analysis by the Associated Press. In past election years, the rejection rate was around 1% to 2%, according to the Texas Tribune.

The rejection rate hit more liberal areas of the state with more than 15% of mail ballots thrown out in Democratic-leaning counties, compared to 9.1% in Republican-leaning counties. In Tarrant County, election officials rejected 813 ballots in the Democratic primary under the new voter ID rules, but just three ballots in the Republican primary, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Seems like people just don't want to do the job, from either party. I'm not sure how you jumped from that to some kind of law stopping it > No Democrats voting > voter suppression laws > overthrow US government.

Those are some really weird and seemingly arbitrary jumps.

Are you seriously saying that ballots thrown out in a Democrat primary hurt Democrats more than Democrats?
