조지아 기록은 2,600 Floyd 카운티의 집계되지 않은 투표 용지

이상 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 대통령 선거, 보고서에 따르면.

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.

그만큼 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.

Other counties so far have not found uncounted ballots, with recount figures closely matching their original numbers, Raffensperger said.

Though 트럼프 대통령 has decried alleged 유권자 사기, the accounted ballots will likely do little to close the 14,000-vote gap with President-Elect 조 바이든. If Biden does emerge victorious, he will have clinched the Peace State’s 16 선거 투표 — flipping a historically-red southern battleground.

Gabriel Sterling of the Secretary of State’s office told WSB-TV that the newly discovered ballots will hand Trump an additional 800 votes – which still leaves Biden in the lead.

At a Monday evening news conference, Sterling called for Floyd County’s elections director to step down.

“The secretary of, since this was such an amazing blunder and they had issues in August, would like to see that elections director in Floyd County step down from his position,” Sterling said.

Fox News reached out to the Floyd County Board of Elections and Voter Registration for comment but did not hear back.
