A recount monitor in Georgia discovered a 9,626-vote error in the hand recount in DeKalb County, according to the chairman of the Georgia Republican Party.

“One of our monitors discovered a 9,626-vote error in the DeKalb County hand count. One batch was labeled 10,707 for Biden and 13 for Trump—an improbable margin even by DeKalb standards. The actual count for the batch was 1,081 for Biden and 13 for Trump,” David Shafer wrote on Twitter on Nov. 18.

“Had this counting error not been discovered, Biden would have gained enough votes from this one batch alone to cancel out Trump’s gains from Fayette, Floyd, and Walton,” Shafer added, referring to the three Peach State counties that discovered memory cards with uncounted votes on Nov. 16 and 17. The discovered votes favored President Donald Trump and cut former Vice President Joe Biden’s lead in the state by more than 1,400 votes.

Shafer said that two official counters signed off on the miscounted batch. Republican attorneys turned over an affidavit (pdf) on the incident to the Georgia secretary of state and requested an investigation.

“We were limited to one monitor for every 10 counting tables and we were kept some distance from the tables. There is no telling what we missed under these unreasonable restrictions,” Shafer said.

Georgia’s deadline to complete the recount is 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 18. The state is scheduled to vote on whether to certify the results of the 2020 election on Nov. 20.

The recount in progress was initiated by Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger based on a new law that calls for an audit of one race after each election. The Trump campaign has challenged the recount process, asserting that it is meaningless unless it includes an audit of the voters’ signatures.

The office of the secretary of state didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Georgia officials are probing the handling of the presidential election in the state’s largest county. Officials are seeing “managerial sloppiness” and “chain of custody” issues in Fulton County, which has a population of about a million and includes Atlanta, Gabriel Sterling with the secretary of state’s office told reporters on Nov. 17.

Raffensperger said on Nov. 17 that an audit of voting machines was completed with no signs of foul play. Voting systems testing company Pro V&V conducted the audit and “found no evidence of the machines being tampered.”

The Trump campaign has alleged that voting machines and software by Dominion Voting Systems switched votes from Trump to Biden. Dominion denied the allegations.

    And what’s worse it the state supreme court in, I think it was Georgia, sided with the dems who wouldn’t allow republicans to watch the counting or recounts from 6′ away and the judge said it’s up to the cities to decide how far the observers have to stand! This isn’t right!!! That’s just saying it’s up to the cities to decide whether they allow observers or not cuz people can’t see from even 6′ away let alone farther!

    The billionaire leftists had this all planned out from the day one of Trump’s election – remember five days after the election Soros, Steyers along with Pelosi and other leftists gathered at the Mandarin Hotel in D.C. together to plan getting rid of the President. This has been in the works that long and why so many people are involved in it. HEADS SHOULD ROLL. These people are NOT too wealthy to be prosecuted and sent to Gitmo – Soros should be had up for murder as he funded the riots where people and youngsters were killed. The electric chair awaits him. I’d pay to witness that.

    I wonder how Russia or China would deal with the likes of Soros, Steyers and that entire bunch who are trying to overturn an election (if they had any). They must be laughing their heads off right now.
    Every damned one of them would be fed to the rabid dogs in those societies. That was N. Korea but if the shoe fits.

    I had heard last night that Georgia said they will count the old count on election day and that number will be used….so what did we just go through all this for? This is really getting messy and confusing.

  • Carol Fryer says:

    They are just proving over and over they can ignore all laws, even theirs.
