As the polls closed in the Granite State, Noah issued a warning on tonight’s edition of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show.
“None of the votes matter if they aren’t counted correctly,” the late-night host said, before coughing “Iowa.”
Fortunately, the state went old school today for its Democratic primary — by using paper ballots — and there was no need to be alarmed. According to New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner, the election was 100% “app free.”
“You can’t hack a pencil,” Gardner said in a TV news interview. “We don’t have any apps involved in any of the tabulating or the counting.”
That was welcome news to Noah who said, “They’ve got this thing under control.”
