Report: Georgia Ballots Rejected By Machines Were Later Altered By Election Workers To Count


OPINION: This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion


New records obtained by Just the News allegedly show that Georgia ballots rejected by Dominion voting machines were later altered during the adjudication process.

The report alleges that ballots marked in the 2020 presidential election for Donald Trump were awarded to Joe Biden by a panel of humans during adjudication.

John Solomon at Just the News reported:

But in 2020, adjudication played a much larger role in states like Georgia, which allowed hundreds of thousands of additional citizens to vote absentee for the first time during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In all, more than 5,000 of the 148,000 absentee ballots cast — or about 3% — in Georgia’s largest county required some form of human intervention, according to logs obtained from Fulton County by Just the News under an open records act request.

The report added:

The adjudication ballots alone are not enough to change a Georgia election in which Biden and Trump were separated by less than 13,000 votes. However, they reveal an imperfect system vulnerable to chaos, subjectivity, or political dirty tricks, especially in a county like Fulton where state officials documented widespread irregularities and misconduct and now want to take over election counting.

Just the News reviewed 1,604 pages of adjudication logs from Fulton County and reviewed 4820 of the 5064 ballot images where human vote counters reviewed or overrode the Dominion Voting machines. The JTN review provided an unprecedented window into the extraordinary discretion accorded adjudication judges to interpret a voter’s intent on a flawed ballot.

Following a recount in Georgia regarding the 2020 US Presidential Election, doubt has been cast over the legitimacy of the final result. 

The recount reportedly found a number of discrepancies relating to the absentee ballots and their legitimacy.

The Federalist reports that shortly after the November election, the president of Data Productions Inc. who is described as an expert in voting data analytics, Mark Davis, obtained data from the National Change of Address (NCOA) database identifying Georgia residents who confirmed that the US Postal Service.

“After excluding moves with effective dates within 30 days of the general election, and by using data available from the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office, Davis identified nearly 35,000 Georgia voters who indicated they had moved from one Georgia county to another, but then voted in the 2020 general election in the county from which they had moved,” The Federalist reported. 

Davis explained that under Georgia law temporary relocations do not alter a citizen’s residency status or render their votes as inadmissible, however,  as the Federalist points out, the margins are putting Biden and Trump’s results under scrutiny. 

Approximately one-third of the votes at issue could have altered the outcome of the election,” The Federalist alleges. “Yet the media, the courts, and the Secretary of State’s Office ignored or downplayed the issue.”

“It was disconcerting to see the media and the courts largely ignore serious issues like these, especially since the data I was seeing showed very legitimate issues,” Davis said. “In fact, I heard members of the Secretary of State’s team admit some votes were cast with residency issues, but then claimed there weren’t enough of them to cast the outcome of the election in doubt,” Davis added. “That was not at all what I was seeing, and as far as I am aware the Secretary of State’s Office has never put an actual number on the ones they did see.”

The Federalist reports: 

While frustrated, Davis told me that he never stopped working on these issues. “In May I received an updated voter database from the Secretary of State’s office, and I imported the data and compared voter’s addresses to the NCOA information I processed in November.”

The Federalist reports that Davis ran the data and found that approximately 35,000 Georgians who said they had moved from one county to another more than 30 days before November, over 10,300 updated their voter registration information. 

The analyst found that those same individuals also cast ballots in the country where they resided before the election. 

“That number continues to increase every day as more and more people update their registrations,” Davis said. “I have little doubt that the total number will eventually meet and then exceed President Biden’s margin of victory in Georgia.” Davis, who has testified as an expert witness multiple times in disputed election cases, believes Trump might have won a challenge to the Georgia election results had a court actually heard his case.

“Under Georgia law, a judge can order an election be redone if he or she sees there were enough illegal, irregular, or improperly rejected votes to cast the results of the election in doubt, or if they see evidence of ‘systemic irregularities,’” Davis said.

“These issues were absolutely systemic,” Davis added, noting “they occurred in every county in the state, in every state house, state senate, and in every congressional district in the state.”

Jake Evans, a lawyer who has managed to successfully overturn two Georgia elections, told The Federalist that he agreed with Davis’ findings.

Explaining, “an election should be overturned either if (1) more votes than decided the election were illegal, wrongfully rejected or irregular, or (2) when there were systemic irregularities that cast in doubt the results of the election.”
