WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The problems with Republican inspectors have been happening throughout the city, but the greatest issues were occurring in West Philadelphia, the website 538.com reported.

"It’s voter suppression, disenfranchisement and intimidation," Republican City Committee Chairman Joe DeFelice was quoted as saying by the outlet.

In Philadelphia, inspectors are supposed to be majority Democratic and minority Republican at each station.

Given Philadelphia’s Democratic majority — a 7-to-1 registration advantage — the minority inspectors can sometimes be difficult to find.

In addition, the alternative media has reported of voting machine problems in Philadelphia, including the inability to vote for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
