While President Trump’s efforts to have the 2020 election results recalculated in his favor haven’t been going quite as smoothly as he would have hoped, there are new revelations that seem to cast a pall of doubt over the accuracy of the general contest.
It is this uncertainty that has fueled online speculation regarding the election and its results, and sent many an armchair investigator into a fit of rage.
The latest out of the suddenly blue Peach State is sure to have the chatter picking back up again.
More than 2,600 ballots in Georgia’s Floyd County that have not been tallied were recently found during a recount in the state for the 2020 presidential election, according to reports.
Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger blamed the problem on Floyd County election officials failing to upload votes from a memory card in a ballot-scanning machine.
Georgia began recounting its nearly 5 million ballots by hand on Friday after President Donald Trump and the Republican Party requested a statewide audit.
This was a rather large discovery.
The 2,600 previously uncounted ballots in the county marked the most significant issue so far uncovered in the recount process. Floyd County Republican Party chair Luke Martin called the mishap “concerning” but insisted that it “doesn’t appear to be a widespread issue.”
“I’m glad the audit revealed it, and it’s important that all votes are counted,” Martin told the Atlanta-Journal Constitution.
This is the first that that Georgia had gone to the Democratic nominee for President in nearly thirty years, and the sudden switch has caused more than a few online speculators to cast doubt on the results.
