‘Election Integrity’ Was a Major Talking Point for Glenn Youngkin, His Underage Son Attempted to Vote Multiple Times on Tuesday

Republicans have always worried about ‘election integrity.’ To them, that usually means making it harder for young people and people of color to vote. In the age of Donald Trump, however, it means that if Republicans lost an election, it was rigged.

While critical race theory was his main talking point, Glenn Youngkin also talked plenty about election integrity. But on Tuesday, while Youngkin was winning the Virginia race for governor, his son attempted to vote multiple times.

Jennifer Chanty, an elections officials in Great Falls, told the son he was too young to vote. The teen then came back, saying his friend was allowed to vote. Chanty told the Washington Post, “I told him, ‘I don’t know what occurred with your friend, but you are not registered to vote today. You’re welcome to register, but you will not be voting today.’

A spokesperson responded to the claims, saying, “It’s unfortunagettte that while Glenn attempts to unite the Commonwealth around his positive message of better schools, safer streets, a lower cost of living, and more jobs, his political opponents — mad that they suffered historic losses this year — are pitching opposition research on a 17-year old kid who honestly misunderstood Virginia election law and simply asked polling officials if he was eligible to vote; when informed he was not, he went to school.”
