Georgia completes hand audit of ballots, confirms Biden's victory

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said on Thursday that a hand audit of ballots in the state was complete and had confirmed Joe Biden as the winner of the Nov. 3 election in the state.

An audit was launched after unofficial results showed Biden leading President Donald Trump by about 14,000 votes.

“The audit confirmed that the original machine count accurately portrayed the winner of the election,” the secretary of state’s office said in a statement on Thursday evening.

Raffensperger is expected to formally certify Biden’s victory on Friday.

Trump, who has claimed without evidence that there were widespread irregularities and fraud in states that he lost to Biden, including Georgia, can still request a recount in Georgia after the results are certified because the margin of victory was less than 0.5%.

The change in counts is well within the human counting error.

But the recount, if requested, would be a machine recount.

I think this may put some holes in Rudy's case about the voting machines throwing votes to Biden.

and Georgia was using the same systems as Michigan, right?

All of our errors here in GA were human errors not machine errors, which is not surprising.

There seemed to be two chips that didn't get counted, and they seem to have come from counties that trended for Trump, as opposed to the Atlanta area. They didn't seem to make much difference in the final vote total, although it would have changed a 537 vote victory in another state at another time.

What's obvious about this is that it involved all sorts of different counties and all sorts of people doing the hand counts, suggesting that the number of Biden ballots and Trump ballots were counted fairly in the original count. The only possible fraud would have been ballots that were turned in by people who were not legitimate voters -- but there couldn't have been any wholesale misstatement of the number of actual ballots on each side. This is a lot different from the kind of suggestions we are hearing from the right wing, that big city political machines made up numbers that they needed to turn the totals.

But that's exactly the crux of these morons' argument -- that a large number of the ballots are illegitimate and/or fake/phony.

Only, by GA law, once the signature is checked the ballot's affiliation is lost. This is because politicians used to BUY votes in GA. It's in the GA constitution now that every citizen has the right to vote in private, and even the government cannot know who you voted for. This is the same reason one cannot take a photo of your ballot in the voting booth.

By definition, this legal threat is impossible to achieve. There will be no removal of 'illegal' ballots from the pool of what's been counted now twice.
