Austria Throws Out Presidential Election Results After Claims of “Voting Irregularities”

Austria's court system doesn't seem to like the results of their country's latest presidential election, so they're throwing out the result.

Austria’s Constitutional court has today ordered May’s presidential election be annulled and another called after “particularly serious cases” of voting fraud were detected in the photo-finish vote.

The Green party-backed candidate Alexander Van der Bellen originally snatched victory by a mere 0.6 per cent in the second round vote, which was taken to decide the new president of central-European state Austria in May. He had made it to the round alongside Freedom Party (FPO) candidate Norbert Hofer, who campaigned to protect Austria from mass migration and Islamification.

Now the Austrian Constitutional court has upheld a complaint by the FPO about conduct in the election. The party had alleged that there were voting “irregularities” in 94 of the 117 total electoral constituencies in the country, reports Kronen Zeitung.

Already, people in the United States — mainly Bernie Sanders supporters — have tried to use “voting irregularities” as a means to reverse election results. It's only a matter of time before these tactics begin to work.
