Headlines Politics U.S.

A county in Georgia has “found” votes that were not included in the initial results for the state. It is the second Georgia county in as many days to report such a find.

From WSB-TV Atlanta:

The Georgia Secretary of State’s Office says another county has found missing votes during their audit of the ballots in the presidential race.

During the hand recount, Fayette County uncovered 2,755 votes that were not included in the initial count. Secretary of State official Gabriel Sterling said those ballots were scanned onto a card, but those votes were never uploaded into the initial count. He says there were several backups designed to catch this issue and that it falls to workers who didn’t follow procedure.

Of the votes that are now being added to the total, 1,577 were for President Donald Trump, 1,128 for Joe Biden and the rest were for Jo Jorgenson or write-ins. That changes the margin in the state by under 500 votes. with Biden now leading Trump by 12,929 votes.

Nearly 3,000 votes were found to have been deleted from vote totals in Floyd County yesterday due to a Dominion voting software “mishap.” Of the more than 2,600 votes found, 1,643 were for President Trump.
