Voting problems at El Camino Real Charter High School in Woodland Hills

Some San Fernando Valley voters believe they are unfairly prevented from casting a vote in the upcoming gubernatorial election.

At El Camino Real Charter High School in Woodland Hills, some voters said they were told the computers had indicated they had already voted when they had not.

West Hills, 88-year-old Estelle Bender said she was nowhere near the only person who was falsely told that she had already voted.

Along with friends of hers who witnessed the problem and two other women outside the polling station, Bender said that “the man next to me argued the same”.

Bender said she filled out a preliminary ballot and “went really mad”.

Bender added that, to her knowledge, many of those affected by the issue are self-proclaimed Republicans and she is suspicious.

“I would still like to know how I voted,” said Bender.

The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder’s office said in a statement that tentative ballots are a “fail-safe option” to ensure everyone’s votes are counted.

“As soon as the eligibility is checked, [the ballots] processed and counted ”, it says in the declaration.
