Georgia discovers 2,600 previously uncounted votes in presidential recount
Oversight by county elections director called "an amazing blunder" by state's voting system manager
The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
During the recount of votes in Georgia’s presidential race, more than 2,600 ballots were found in Floyd County that had not originally been counted. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, this will likely reduce President Trump’s 14,000-vote deficit to Joe Biden by about 800 net votes.
Apparently the county election officials didn’t upload votes in a ballot scanning machine, which the state’s voting system manager Gabriel Sterling called “an amazing blunder.” He said the county’s elections director should resign.
The uncounted votes were cast in person during early voting said Luke Martin, chairman of the Floyd County Republican Party.
“It’s very concerning,” Martin said. “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.”
