Live in Maryland. Went to vote. My voters card says Republican. Got to polls, gave my name address, and birth date.. Computer came up saying …unaffiliated. !!! Meaning My vote will not count!. My card says republican But computer says UNAFFILIATED!!!!!! What’s going on ???? TRUMP IS RIGHT AGAIN !!! Election is rigged ! I never changed my party, BUT someone did !! Know what , ? I was not alone !!! Many people were in the same line as me. They cannot keep you from voting. It is a constitutional right. However, because you cannot be turned down, other ways are found to keep votes from being counted. Unbelieable !.
