Uncounted votes in Georgia surfaced yet again. After Floy, another Georgia county found uncounted votes during a recount. State officials found a memory card during their audit of Fayette County election results. The card contained thousands of votes that election officers forgot to upload into the state voting system. More than half of the ballots voted for President Donald Trump.

Forgotten Memory Card Part II 

Gabriel Sterling of the Secretary of State’s office said they found scanned votes saved on a memory card. However, the election officer never uploaded the card’s contents to the system. Sterling said that Fayette’s issue was “more easily discoverable than the issue in Floyd County.” He said that in Fayette, they compared the number of people listed in the early voting file with the vote total. The difference matched the number of votes on the card.  

Human Error

Melanie Conrad with the Floyd County Board of Elections wrote a statement released to FOX 5 News. She wrote: “We did have an issue with a scanner at the polling location where the undercount occurred. That will be the starting point for our investigation. As of now, we believe it was a technical issue caused by human error.” 

“There was an issue where we noticed there were more people on the absentee ballot filed for voting in-person in Fayette County than was in the actual reporting,” Sterling said. “It was discovered today for certain. Because of the audit, we found this. There were several places where the county should have seen this. There were several human beings that didn’t follow procedure.” 

Biden’s lead shrinks

In 2016, President Donald Trump won by 19 points in Fayette County. This year, he leads by 6 points going into the recount. Similar to Floyd county, Fayette’s new count won’t change  Biden’s total lead statewide.  

The audit confirmed 2,755 previously uncounted votes in Fayette County. 1,577 votes were for Trump while 1,128 were for Biden. This reduces the statewide lead of Joe Biden down to 12,929. Fayette County will re-certify election results later today.

‘A Different Reaction’ 

Local reporter Jamie Dupree thinks that the reaction to the error is mild. He noted that people would react differently if the votes came from Fulton county instead. Fulton is a deep blue area that voted Democrat. 

Dupree tweeted: “And we have the second county in Georgia where all the votes were not counted. Fayette County voted 53-46 for Trump.” In a follow-up tweet, he wrote: “Just a thought again today….that if this was Fulton County finding uncounted votes, my Twitter mentions would be melting down. But when it’s two GOP counties (Floyd & Fayette), well it’s just a shrug of the shoulders.”

Floyd County

Last Monday, Floyd county also reported uncounted ballots numbering 2,600. When opened, they showed 1,643 new votes for Trump and 865 for Biden. Georgia Elections Director Chris Harvey verified the 2,600 missed ballots. He will add them to the final tally this Friday. “You want every vote counted right the first time, but that is one of the goals of the audit: to identify problems,” he said. He confirmed uploading all the votes, saying that “the results will be what they are.”

Like Fayette, officials attributed the error to humans. Election workers failed to upload a memory card to the system. Local Republican Party Chairman Luke Martin opined that the issue is “very concerning.” Martin did think that “this doesn’t appear to be a widespread issue.” He is thankful for the audit, and said it’s “important to count all votes.”  

Wednesday Deadline

County elections workers started the hand recount last Friday. State law allows the secretary of State to choose which race to audit. As such, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger picked the presidential elections. He said that the close margin between Trump and Biden requires a full hand recount. As of Tuesday, Raffensperger’s office said workers audited and hand-counted 4.7 million out of 5 million votes. Most of Georgia’s counties reported minor or no discrepancies.

The deadline for the manual recount is 11:59 pm Wednesday. The Secretary of State’s office previously said they will certify the hand tally results. Now, Sterling clarified that the state will certify the counties’ certified results. While people may find the recount unnecessary and wasteful, the process served a purpose. It showed that the system works and that human workers need to stay more vigilant. We can’t all be winners, but every vote counts.

With the recount winding down, the audit shows around 5,000 uncounted votes in Georgia. With the state’s voting population at almost 5 million, does the audit prove voter fraud? Or are the missing votes just a matter of human error? Let us know what’s on your mind by sharing your comments below.

    It doesnt prove there was intent to fraud but it sure is suspecious.

    IF YOU FOUND TWO ERRAS IN A STATE OF 5MILLION WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU WOULD FIND IN A STATE WITH A VOTE OF 20-30 MILLION WE HAVE TO MAKE A STANDARD VOTING METHOD FOR EVERY STATE AND FOR EVERY PERSON TO SAY EVERY VOTE COUNTS OR THERES NO REASON TO VOTE

  • Avatar Tom Hartman says:

    Knowing what they found in these 2 counties, they should audit every county in every state to make sure ALL votes are counted and we find out the true outcome if this election.

  • Avatar Sylvia Williamson says:

    VOTER FRAUD IN 37 STATES DUE TO THE DOMINION VOTING MACHINES USING SOFTWARE THAT SWITCHES THE VOTES FROM TRUMP TO BIDEN! THE WHOLE VOTING PROCESS NEEDS TO BE REDONE IN A PROPER MANNER – MARKING BALLOTS WITH BALL POINT PEN (SOME WERE MARKED WITH MAGIC MARKERS WHICH VOTING MACHINES DO NOT READ!!! VOTER ID MUST BE PRESENTED AT TIME OF VOTING! THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO PREVENT FRAUD! HOW CAN THEY EVER TELL WHICH BALLOTS WERE SWITCHED AND WHICH WEREN’T AND HOW DO YOU KNOW THE PEOPLE RECOUNTING ARE NOT COMMITTING FRAUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Avatar Shelley Chavious says:

    I keep seeing everywhere ” every vote counts” but considering you found all of these uncounted votes in this one state and now that they have been counted and certified, your article says that it won’t make any difference, how does that hold up to “every vote counts”? Like the commenter DERIGGI above says, if there were this many in this one state, how many would be found in a nationwide review? I’ve also seen a video online of a poll watcher, a democrat, who said that he was NOT ALLOWED to be close enough to see if anything deceitful was going on with the vote counting or not. That by itself, if truthful, would lead one to believe there was something that they were trying to hide.I don’t trust the process AT ALL and it needs a MAJOR OVERHAUL.

  • Avatar Ronald Gretz says:

    If your ballot was not counted by midnight 11/3, it should not be counted. Except absentee legal ballots. Easy peasy.

  • Avatar Fay Freddie says:

    With all the abnormal troubles showing up, witch has not happened in the past. We should null and void this election and carry on. With out present leader. America has been doing just fine so far. There has been far too many comments given off from the left to let this election go on and be allowed. Too many dirty deals found throughout the system.

  • Avatar Debra Swindler says:

    I was going to do a mail in ballot but I couldn’t find the ballot to send in. Then with all the discussion about mail in ballots and the problems I decided just to go down and vote in person. When I got to my polling place with my daughter and Grandson they said I had already came in and voted in person. Which was a big lie. So I had to fill out a bunch of paperwork so I could vote on the machine. I think there’s a lot more discrepancies in the voting process than people may know. Makes you think.

    This years voting is gotten way out of hand and I personally think there is a lot of bullshit going on out there. This is supposed to be a great country !! How can it be great, if we have this kind of crookedness going on. people who are supposed to be honest, but in all reality, are making our country look bad. No wonder other countries look at us like a bunch of fools, a country that can be taken advantage of and stepped on. I am a firm believer in getting the job done right, no need to be playing games when it comes to the integrity of this great nation. But if this kind of irresponsible is to continue, it won’t be long and we will not be GREAT anymore. It is time to stop the “BULLSHIT”. Step up to the plate and put some people in the Whitehouse and the rest of the government offices who really care about the people of the United States. Not Politicians who just want to line their pockets and their bank accounts with money. Maybe I should run for office, I don’t have a lot of political contacts, but because I really care what happens in this country, I think I could do a better job than what we have been seeing lately. In all honesty !! To me, Trump did a pretty good job, he ran the country like a giant business, like a company. If you don’t get results, then it is time to replace the old and start with people who are fresh and have new ideas. This is the path that I think needs to be taken, if it was up to me and I was going to run this country, this !! is what I would do. Thank You !! To all the great people out there in this country who really care and want to make a difference.

    They wanted to do this but a little here and a little there so it doesn’t look suspicious or lead back to the party. Democrats have done this before and especially in 2016 for Hillary, that’s why they were so sure she’d win, just like this time for Biden but something didn’t go quite right and that’s why they were so surprised when she didn’t win.
    Democrats have done everything to get rid of Trump , the arrows in the quiver Pelosi talked of and its being discovered, again.

  • Avatar CLYDE E DUNCAN says:

    This a rigged election all over the U.S. The Democrats can’t afford to lose, so they CHEAT to win cause can’t let the People decide who next President is. Total control is what the Dems want and that will be the end of the UNITED STATES. The land of rights, Liberty and FREEDOM.

  • Avatar Dan Fitzpatrick says:

    A voting machine that can be adjusted is just wrong. The people making the machine are wrong. the people buying these machines have their reasons. What has happened to THE U.S.A.?

  • Avatar Sue says:

    Voting machines should be self contained and not have data sent through who knows where. There is a huge propensity for voter fraud. The integrity of our election process is under a great deal of skepticism and it needs to be totally revamped BEFORE we get into another election.

  • Avatar Ed Smith says:

    Recounting ballots which may contain fraudulently created documents will not accomplish anything. This is smoke and mirrors – focus on the smaller items such as this while not focusing on the major problem of a totally insecure voting system, open to manipulation in both the automated systems as well as the physical items. It would seem that a transparent forensic audit of the actual computers used in the process would answer a lot of questions – easy enough to do, and it is troubling on many counts why nobody seems to want to have this happen. Even better, it would seem that a re-vote should occur, no mail in ballots except for overseas military, no on-line computerized systems, plenty of oversight from both parties. Not really that difficult, and would bring the country together in terms of accepting the election results that all of this vitriolic rhetoric from both parties ever will. Maybe that’s not really what they want.

  • Avatar JOHN E SAMPLES says:

    I did my time in the service for this country with 4 years in the U.S.A.F. I also took the same oath as all who enter the U.S. services including the presidency. To protect and defend this country from all enemies both foreign and domestic. I hate to say it but this country is going to hell because of domestic enemies. They have rigged this election to get rid of an outsider who doesn’t play by the domestic enemy rules. The really disgusting part of this is those in the news are part of the enemy list enabling those who are subverting our election process and making sure only those votes of the crooked left are being counted right and secretly being added to. Those votes for the right are being under counted and lost so the right loses and the left wins. Sad

  • Avatar Patti says:

    This 2020 election needs to be redone, without mail in votes, and computers free of fraudulent software! This entire election was rigged, and it’s totally unfair! The election should be done with absentee ballots and in person voting only! This is the only way to bring the American Citizens together! If the Democrats are not in favor of that, I would have to ask why? What are they hiding? Someone put that horrible software in the computers and someone wanted mail in votes! Both of these voting processes were fraudulent. So another election being overseen by Democrats and Republicans, plus computer system analyst’s that understands software capabilities that both parties are happy with. Then redo this and the winner wins simple as that! I do believe this last election really made many Citizens lose integrity of how these elections are run! I myself feel as though there definitely was big time fraud in the computers as well as those mail in votes! Redo please!

    Who cares? How can you vote for a murder? That is what Trump is and nothing else. The United States of America’s needs to charge him with murder for all the Americans who died because of him really never doing anything to help to fight the corona visus. He still is killing people , and calling it a hoax has got to be one of the most stupid comment ever said. What a murder a lier and the worst President in the history of the United States. The people and government need to convict him of murder. What’s wrong with everybody? Just because he is president doesn’t mean he can get away from this.

  • Avatar Barbara Turner says:

    People knows there was fraud going on to keep President Trump out of office for four more years what a shame. He’s the best president we have ever had it’s a shame to have a man that only want what’s best for the people and all the Democratic for four years was try to get him out of office, and people like myself see what he has done for our country.And we know Joe Biden isn’t up for the job he’s 77 I’m seventy and my husband is seventy seven I know very well Joe is not able to run the country so does his wife or she should her being a doctor. So shameful and sad. May God forgive us .

    Trump did not kill anybody. God determines life and death. Is Trump God. How stupid can one get? The leaders care so much about the virus they are holding back proven vaccines. Why? Money not anyones well being.

  • Avatar Cat kin says:

    We all care. Even Trump. He has done more for America than any President. if Biden and i say IF you will find out that these democratic socialist DONT CARE. YOUR SICK to say this. He has a heart of gold. Too bad the media dont show it. Just by your stance you are very bitter. You need to take a look into yourself before you cast judgement.

  • Avatar James Howell says:

    May not have been voter fraud but certainly a tremendous amount of irresponsibility on the part of those trusted to be sure there are no irregularities.
