Truth Tracker: Were Trump ballots marked with sharpies disqualified in Arizona?


TORONTO — Unlike the “Sharpie Gate” of the past, when President Donald Trump reportedly altered a map of Hurricane Dorian’s path, 2020’s version of the viral hashtag involves serious and unfounded allegations of voter fraud. Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s unexpected and narrow win in the state of Arizona has fuelled viral allegations that Republican voters were intentionally given Sharpie pens at polling stations in a bid to invalidate their ballots. “Have you heard about Dems distributing sharpie pens to Trump voters and then invalidating their ballots,” read one tweet, which was shared more than 1,300 times on election night. AZ update: apparently, the use of sharpie pens in GOP precincts is causing ballots to be invalidated.
