Peach State Recount Uncover 3,000 More Uncounted Ballots, Bringing Total Over 5K

While pundits were singing “Georgia on My Mind”, it seems as though the tune’s famously blind songwriter would have done a better job counting the ballots than the Peach State officials in charge of it.

Things aren’t going so peachy down in the Peach State at the moment, and local officials are scrambling to right the ship.

Georgia, for the first time since the 1990’s, went to a Democratic during the 2020 election.  This was a surprise to just about every electoral prediction outfit, with the exception of those who’ve been salivating over a Biden landslide for months.

The shock of the whole thing likely contributed to much of a doubt being cast about the overall results of the election, as coincidences are often used to throw gas on the conspiratorial fire.

Now, as Georgia’s recount efforts continue to rake in thousands of previously uncounted ballots, eyebrows are being raised across the country.

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.

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.

There was earlier trouble as well.

The recent findings follow the discovery of more than 2,600 ballots in Floyd County that had not been counted. At the time, Floyd County Republican Party chair Luke Martin called the mishap “concerning” but insisted that it “doesn’t appear to be a widespread issue.”
