The candidate made the claims to Fox News, following reports of voters in Pennsylvania having issues with automated machines.

According to local reports, two of the eight automated voting machines at the ironically-named Clinton Township were experiencing issues.

Voters attempting to vote 'straight party ticket' were seeing their vote for Republican Donald Trump change to Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“I went back, pressed Trump again," one voter told KDKA.

"Three times I did this, so then I called one of the women that were working the polls over. And she said you must be doing it wrong. She did it three times and it defaulted to Hillary every time,”

Officials have since recalibrated the machines and said the issue has been resolved.

Issues have also been reported in other cities, according to WPMT.

Voters are now being urged to check their selection before submitting their ballot.
