REPEAT: Georgia Sees 800,000 Absentee Ballot Requests For January Election
As questions are left unanswered about absentee ballot handling and tabulations from the November 3, 2020 General Election, Georgia’s Secretary of State goes for round two
As the most important election in Georgia’s history since the Civil War looms in the near future, questions of vote fraud, secret deals, and ballot tampering are still unanswered from the General Election that created the need for a run-off. As if to almost double down on the issue, Georgia’s electorate has, again, requested a huge number of absentee ballots.
Nearly 800,000 Georgians have requested absentee ballots for that state’s all-important runoff elections this January 5, 2021. The race will decide which party has the majority in the US Senate, and whether the US government succumbs to one-party rule.
The General Counsel for Georgia’s Secretary of State, Ryan Germany, told reporters attending an election board meeting Monday that approximately 762,000 absentee ballots have been requested for the runoffs to date.
Germany noted that a record 1.3 million Georgians voted via absentee ballot in the November 3, 2020, General Election.
In the State of Georgia, election law says voters who choose to vote absentee do not need to provide a reason. They are permitted to submit an application for an absentee ballot online, by mail, by fax, or in person.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has come under fire for his lackadaisical approach to investigating innumerable claims of vote fraud and ballot tampering in the November 3, 2020 General Election. His performance has led to some in the GOP naming him a RINO.
Reports have surfaced that Raffensperger entered into secret deals with the Georgia Democrat Party that helped to change the rules about the handling of absentee ballots prior to the General Election.
The question of whether unlegislated changes to Georgia election law is at the center of litigation about the November 3 election.
