The first morning of early voting in Georgia began with lines at the Brunswick polling station and candidates boosters on the street-Georgia Recount-ss-featured

The Georgia recount of presidential votes showed 2,600 uncounted ballots in Floyd County. Upon counting, they showed 1,643 new votes for Republican Donald Trump and 865 for Democrat Joe Biden.

Georgia Elections Director Chris Harvey verified the 2,600 missed ballots. They will add these ballots to the final tally by Friday’s recount deadline. “You want every vote counted right the first time, but that is one of the goals of the audit: to identify problems,” he said. “All the votes will be uploaded, and the results will be what they are.”

Reducing Biden’s Lead

Trump currently leads Biden in Floyd County by a 43% margin in the recount, which ends this Friday. Once official, the ballots will add an estimated 800 votes to Trump, and reduce Biden’s 14,000 vote lead in the state. 

The past week, President Trump decried alleged voter fraud in the state. However, the newly-counted ballots won’t do much. In fact, it won’t change the outcome of the presidential race. With 99% of the votes counted, Biden leads Trump in Georgia 49.5% to 49.2%.

Crucial Senate Runoff

The recovered votes can possibly help Republican Senator David Perdue. Perdue is short of 14,000 to claim 50% of the total vote. If he gets the number, he will avoid a runoff with Democratic candidate Jon Ossof. If not, then Perdue and Ossof face a January 5 runoff election to determine the winner. 

Since then, Perdue threw himself behind Present Donald Trump’s claims of election fraud. He joined fellow Georgia Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler in calling for accountability. Together they asked Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to resign. Raffensperger, a Republican, refused to do so. At the same time, Perdue recognized President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. He warned that the two Georgia Senate seats for runoff are crucial for the GOP’s hold of the senate. These are “the last line of defense against this liberal socialist agenda the Democrats will perpetuate.”

What Happened to the Ballots?

Raffensperger’s office said the lost votes were due to human error. Election workers failed to upload a memory card to a ballot counting machine. Floyd County Republican Party Chairman Luke Martin said “It’s very concerning.” He added: “But this doesn’t appear to be a widespread issue. I’m glad the audit revealed it, and it’s important that all votes are counted.” 

Gabriel Sterling, the state‘s voting system manager, said the incident was “an amazing blunder.” In addition, he emphasized the error as “not an equipment issue. It’s a person not executing their job properly.” Sterling then suggested the Floyd County elections director Chief Clerk Robert Brady resign. “This is the kind of situation that requires a change at the top of their management side,” Sterling noted.

Senator Graham’s Suggestion

On Monday, Raffensperger said Senator Lindsey Graham hinted that he throw away ballots. Speaking on CNN’s The Situation Room, Raffensperger recounted his talk with Graham. He said that Graham “asked if the ballots could be matched back to the voters.” “It implied that then you could throw those out for any if you look at the counties with the highest frequent error of signatures. So that’s the impression that I got,” he said. He thought Graham meant it as “an implication of, ‘Look hard, and see how many ballots you could throw out,'” he added. 

Raffensperger told The Washington Post that Graham cast doubts on Georgia’s signature-matching law. He thought that biased poll workers might “count ballots with inconsistent signatures.”

‘Ridiculous’

Senator Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, denied the allegations. He told CNN that he only wanted to understand how to verify signatures on mail-in ballots. He called the allegations made by Raffensperger as “ridiculous.” 

Graham said: “It seems to me that Georgia has some protections that maybe other states don’t have.” He even said he thought it was a good conversation, and that “I’m surprised to hear him verify it that way.” He added: “So they expanded mail-in voting, and how you verify the signatures to me is the big issue. If you’re going to have mail-in voting, you’ve got to verify that the person who signed the envelope is also the person who requested the ballot.”

    The election should be a total Revote . to prove the Election fraud is really true sane people would not vote for a Biden to have only campaigned from his basement . and the American people that have voted for trump who has done more for the country in 4 years of the democrats trying to impeach him than Biden has done in his greedy time in government service getting paid for doing nothing especially for women and black people

  • Avatar Richard Lewis says:

    Ga. still deep in corruption. Short of a complete secure recount and verification of legal voter ballots under strict supervision.

  • Avatar Jennie says:

    I agree, Revote! In person!

  • Avatar Carrie Zmarzly says:

    It would seem to me if GA cannot validate signatures through their DMZ or Voter Registry then how can the GA People and Nation be certain that these voters true and legal votes,

    As Citizen born patriotic conservative and veteran I believe the most important event in this country is a voting system in which we the people can believe in and know that our vote truly counts and stands for what our country truly stands for like liberty and freedom and selecting a President without the fear of software that changes votes.

    If this country is to continue mail in voting then we need to be checking the voting roles, a copy of a drivers license of the voter to ensure signatures are vetted.

    Elections such as 2020 has so many issues that Americans are not able to be assured that their cast vote was flipped or counted.

    Further utilizing Foreign Software should be against both Federal and States policies and regulations.

    Elections are much to important in today’s society leaving the people to wonder if the voting process is accountable and correct!!

  • Avatar Terry Gilbert says:

    I think All the battleground states should do a revote in person with the proper ID no mail in ballots ever, period

    Biden and Harris should be impeached the minute after he’s sworn in. This was the MOST DISGUSTING display of Voter fraud and Political Fraud in the HISTORY of this Once Great Nation that was WELL on its way to being a GREAT NATION AGAIN under the Leadership of The Greatest President in Modern times President Donald J Trump. PERIOID! The Pelosi PlanDemic was an EPIC FAIL that runs so deep most Americans don’t even fathom how much they were and still are being LIED to about! The stimulus was delayed in April 100% because Pelosi REFUSED to sign off on it until President Trump (under forced duress) ADDED a $50BILLION “assist IRAN(aka Isis) to fight COVID! HELLO? WAKE UP PEOPLE! Iran wasn’t even battling COVID! THAT $50B was Pelosi’s DEBT to Iran FOR the Weaponized Covid She, Gates, and the Rest of the “Commie crew” unleashed on the WORLD as a LAST DIRCB ATTEMPT To destroy an AMAZING President when the Impeachment was an EPIC FAIL because EVERYTHING Pres T was accused of – YEP! Joe Biden and his Son actually DID DO!

    I used to work the polls in Gwinnett county, Georgia. The machines didn’t use paper ballots, they used a reusable chip card and the only paper record was the printout that we received at the end of the day. There is no way to go back and look at how anyone voted. You can see if the vote totals per precinct equals the number of people who signed in on election day, but you can’t physically recheck a ballot. I hated it when we changed to that system because it is rip for computerized vote fraud.

  • Avatar Susan says:

    I don’t believe this low amount of votes were not properly counted. And most of all, I don’t think this was a complete “human error”. I think it was both software discrepancy and human error. I think they’re out and out lying. The Dems are hell bent to win Georgia; however and whatever they need to do to make it happen. Still a sad situation and SO unnecessary, IF the left would be just be honest. They didn’t win in
    2016 and hate Trump SO much that they’ll sell their souls to win this. However, this all spins out the Democratic Party isn’t respected by anyone respectable.

  • Avatar beatrice says:

    The Democrats were out to get you out of the office. They tried with Russia,Mueller, and Impeachment…none of them worked. Their only resort was to commit fraud in the election which would surely make them win. But what they did not realize is that you had a tremendous amount of United State citizens that would go to the mat for you. We do not accept this election going to Biden. We want the recount…and we want those computer machines checked. I think that is where you loss most of your votes machines jumping into Biden instead of Trump. We love you and know you are the only man that can save this country. I will keep praying for a miracle and that you find enough evidence that you won. God Bless America

  • Avatar Todd Nave says:

    I just have a hard time understanding that people voted for Biden. With the Hunter Biden laptops showing corruption. His business buddies testifying. I don’t get how he was allowed to run with his mental issues to be commander in chief. Biden is everything that the Dems tried to investigate Trump for. Total disgrace and his vice president is just as bad. I still think the voting machines were rigged to send Trump’s vote to the clown. Biden can’t make decisions for me, the true Americans that fought and served for freedom. I have no faith in these voting procedures. Everyone should have to show valid ID and do in person

  • Avatar Jim says:

    ANY BODY THAT VOTES DEMOCRAT. IN ANY ELECTION SHOULD HAVE THERE HEAD EXAMINED. THEY ARE THE MOST CROOKED POLITIANS ON THIS EARTH. I HOPE THEY ALL ROT IN HELL.

  • Avatar Alvin D. Watters says:

    I Agree that we need a personal hand count even if it takes until CHRISTMAS to complete it!

  • Avatar David says:

    These states with voter fraud are jeopardizing our whole democracy. We need to punish the guilty and have a re vote. This time with in person voting and poll watchers…..This is ruining America. To destroy a democracy over the hate of one man is ridiculous. Re vote those states in question and have a fair and honest election. The dems have made this election to compare with communism….. Why not just move to another country…..we want a true and fair democracy here….and it didn’t happen. Don’t make it into the place these radicals came from…. WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE GREATEST NATION ON EARTH. THE REASON PEOPLE COME HERE….TO BE FREE…..IF YOU WANT SOCIALISM MOVE TO A SOCIALIST COUNTRY. The democrats are too stupid to realize they’re settling for less with socialism. WE DIDNT BECOME THE GREATEST NATION IN THE WORLD WITH SOCIALISM

  • Avatar SJC says:

    WHEN IT COMES TO DEMOCRATS, WELL,….YOU CAN’T FIX STUPID!!! They have undermined the whole voting process. We should start from ground zero in every state and do it the old fashioned way…you go to the voting polls and vote IN PERSON. If people can stand in lines to get into Costco, Walmart, or you grocery store during Covid, they can sure as hell stand in line to vote. Of course all of this could have been prevented if that WEENIE John Roberts (Chief Justice of the Supreme Court) had done his job months ago….

  • Avatar Rouke says:

    With All the Degenerative incompetence, willful ignorance,and morally corrupt criminality engulfing trump & his entire administration;I fail to Understand how a sane individual of sound mind would vote for this NINCOMPOOP to remain in office.After November 3rd they won’t mention Coronavirus anymore.We’ve rounded the curve.It’s almost gone.They keep talking about COVID 19 to hurt my election.What imbecile said that?

  • Avatar Scott M. says:

    I don’t know why we want a Person to run our country that cannot remember things. It is very important to make proper decisions without having memory lose. I seen what iddi to my mom after taking care of her for 9 years. Not a good thing, I think our President Elect has a serious problem with his memory and will not be able to make proper choices concerning the safety and running of this country. That is my thoughts on this matter.

  • Avatar Last year says:

    I really don’t recall all of the concerns when it was known that the 2016 election was a total fraud. Donald Trump tells lie after lie after lie and don’t give a damn if you catch him up in it or not. He’s a known bigoted racist, a cheat, a liar, and selfish s.o.b. knowingly downplayed the Corona virus and people still worship the ground this guy walk on. Either they are too dumb to see what’s behind the curtain or just as much as full of sh?taste he is. O by the way I’m not a Democrat or Republican just vote for what works for me and my family

  • Avatar Kathryn Gohlke says:

    If any of the ballots were counted improperly then the system does not work. It should be a perfect system in the case of a presidential election.

  • Avatar Jim Tucker says:

    You have to be a US citizen to vote. If you simply register everyone to vote via MVD, anyone can vote. If you mail everyone a ballot (include all the dead people like my parents – LA County was to purge the dead voters per court order(s) years ago, yet both of my deceased parents received ballots. Told “but they didn’t get returned, so it doesn’t matter”- times how many million?) and you end up with extra ballots. How do you have more votes cast than registered voters and not have fraud?) After wasting 32 million on “Russia Collusion” and impeachment BS, we should waste a few million more and redo this election – re-vote with each voter using voter ID – mail in ballot or in person using a printed ballot, not computerized, so each vote can be seen, recounted if necessary, and if not correctly completed or verified, not counted. Period. Then, and only then will I have faith in a fair election count and not feel disenfranchised, victimized, cheated, robbed and lied to. Then I accept the results as fair, clean, honest, and truthful.

  • Avatar Don Collins says:

    Interesting to note if Trump had won there would be nothing said about voter fraud and it would have been how wonderful our election system is.

  • Avatar Cheryl Smith says:

    They need to do more than just a recount. Each ballot needs to be verified. Signatures need to also be verified on mail-in ballots. People in Georgia, you need to check to see if your vote was counted. You can check online. If it wasn’t counted, contact the state election board.
