“There was an issue where we noticed there were more people on the absentee ballot filed for voting in person in Fayette County than was in the actual reporting,” Georgia election official Gabriel Sterling said, according to Fox 5 Atlanta. “It was discovered today for certain. Because of the audit, we found this.”
Sterling said the problem was the result of several individuals not following the proper procedures.
An additional 284 ballots were found in Walton County. The local Board of Elections chair, Lori Wood, told the Walton Tribune the problem was due to votes being previously uploaded from only one of the two ballot scanners in a precinct.
“We would have discovered it,” Wood said. “Maybe not this week, but we would have discovered it.”
President Trump won 61.9% of the uncovered Walton County ballots.
The Georgia Secretary of State’s office is also investigating election management in Fulton County (Atlanta).
Should Georgia’s audit reverse the reported statewide results, President Trump would have 248 electoral votes.
