In Georgia’s Floyd County, election officials discovered a stash of uncounted ballots. More than 2,600 votes WERE NOT Counted. It might not be enough to swing that State’s election but it is enough that the Director of Elections has been asked to step down.
Count all the legal votes
Georgia is one of the 2020 presidential election’s most fiercely contested battleground states. It’s inexcusable that over 2,600 Floyd County ballots were discovered during the hand recount. It has American’s wondering how many more are lurking under the seat cushions and and behind the drapes. This is not the way that all the legal votes get counted. If we still have laws in America, then heads need to roll over this one.
Brad Raffensperger, who goes by the title of Secretary of State for now, “blamed the problem on Floyd County election officials failing to upload votes from a memory card in a ballot-scanning machine.” Oops. They happened to notice when Georgia started the hand recount of nearly 5 million ballots.
So far, that’s the most significant discrepancy. The chairman for the Republican Party in Floyd County, Luke Martin says the lapse is “concerning” but, so far, “doesn’t appear to be a widespread issue.” Still, he’s “glad the audit revealed it, and it’s important that all votes are counted.” All the legal ones that is. In other states, there are lots of extra illegal ballots allegedly floating around.

County director asked to resign
Monday evening, an official in the Georgia Secretary of State’s office, Gabriel Sterling, called on the Floyd County elections director to hand in a resignation. “Since this was such an amazing blunder,” they “would like to see that elections director in Floyd County step down from his position.” If he can’t keep track of the votes then why are they paying him.
The deadline to count up all the Georgia votes is Wednesday, November 18 at the stroke of midnight. This scandal comes on the heels of one in Fulton County where 132,000 ineligible ballots are expected to be thrown out.
People who move are not supposed to cast their votes in their old district. Generally because it makes it that much easier to vote in the new one too. It certainly wasn’t a disadvantage to Joe Biden that 132,000 people voted illegally. Especially when he was only ahead by around 10,000 votes counting all the illegal ones.
