Political gridlock in the US after Mid-Term elections
The US Midterms this week saw the Democrats wrestle back control of the House of Representatives after eight years, while the Republicans maintained control of the Senate leaving the country politically gridlocked. The elections weren’t without their fair share of controversy. Voting machines appeared to break down in predominately black areas of the county of Georgia leaving voters unable to vote for African-American candidate Stacey Abrams with incumbent governor Kemp winning the county. In Ohio, claims of vote rigging turned out to be caused by a temporary paper jam.
