The election issues are starting already.
Some recall voters in California are saying that they are being told they already voted even though they hadn’t yet cast ballots.
They were prevented from voting.
Some San Fernando Valley voters think they are being wrongly prevented from casting a ballot in the upcoming gubernatorial recall election.
At El Camino Real Charter High School in Woodland Hills, some voters say they were told the computers showed them as already having voted, even though they had not.
West Hills resident Estelle Bender, 88, said she was far from the only person who was being told incorrectly that they had already voted.
In addition to friends of hers who experienced the issue and two other women outside the polling place, Bender said that inside, “the man next to me was arguing the same thing.”
Many of those affected are self-identified Republicans:
Bender added that, to her knowledge, many of those affected by this issue are self-identified Republicans, and she’s suspicious.
During an interview on Newsmax, Trump was asked about the California recall election.
He responded with a warning.
Trump predicted that the recall election would be rigged.
He cited the mail-ballots, as well as the ones you can print at home as the reasoning.

Former President Donald Trump has said the upcoming gubernatorial recall election in California is “probably rigged,” less than a week before voters are due to go the polls.
“Well, it’s probably rigged,” Trump said. “They’re sending out all ballots. It’s all—the ballots are, you know, mail-out, mail-in ballots.”
“In fact, I guess you even have a case where you can make your own ballot,” Trump went on.
“When that happens, nobody’s gonna win except these Democrats,” the former president said. “The one thing they’re good at is rigging elections, so I predict it’s a rigged election.”
The leading challenger to Newsom, Larry Elder (R), urged supporters to report “suspicious” results on the election day.
Larry Elder charges that the 2020 presidential election was full of “shenanigans” and says he worried about potential voting irregularities in the Sept. 14 California recall election of embattled Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom.
That’s why Elder, a conservative talk radio host and the polling front runner among the California gubernatorial replacement candidates, is urging supporters to report to his campaign anything they think is suspicious.
“The 2020 election, in my opinion, was full of shenanigans. And my fear is they’re going to try that in this election right here and recall. So I’m urging people to go to ElectElder.com. Whenever you see anything, hear anything suspicious, go to my website. We have a battery of lawyers. We’re going to file a lawsuit in a timely fashion this time,” Elder said Sunday in an exclusive interview on Fox News “Media Buzz.”
Since his 2020 loss to now-President Biden, former President Trump has repeatedly fed his supporters a regular diet of unsubstantiated claims that the election was “stolen” amid “massive” election fraud. Trump refused to concede the election, but dozens of legal challenges by the then-president and his allies were shot down, and then-Attorney General William Barr said the Justice Department had not seen fraud on the kind of scale that could flip the election.
