After Joe Biden clinched the 16 electoral votes for Georgia, the historically red southern state turned blue for the first time since the ’90s.
Earlier this week it was reported that a couple thousand uncounted ballots had been discovered during Georgia’s recount. In Floyd County, about 2,600 ballots were not uploaded from a memory card in a ballot counting machine.
Now, more uncounted ballots have been discovered in another county are we’re starting to wonder what is going on during the internal processes in the Peach State.
At this point, I think Ray Charles could have done a better job counting the ballots.
More than 3,000 uncounted ballots turned up in Georgia as the state is conducting an audit of the 2020 presidential election.
As the hand-tallying continues, officials in Fayette County unearthed 2,755 ballots that had not been included in the original count.
“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,” Georgia election official Gabriel Sterling said, according to Fox 5 Atlanta. “It was discovered today for certain. Because of the audit, we found this.”
Sterling said the problem was the result of several individuals not following the proper procedures.
But that is not the only county to uncover missing ballots.
An additional 284 ballots were found in Walton County. The local Board of Elections chair, Lori Wood, told the Walton Tribune the problem was due to votes being previously uploaded from only one of the two ballot scanners in a precinct.
These newly found ballots haven’t closed the gap between Trump and Biden yet but they may change the minds of many of those who didn’t believe in the president’s claims of fraud.
