The Beginning Of Sanity

On Wednesday, The County Local News reported that according to the new rules adopted by the Georgia Election Board, all ballots must be hand-counted at the precinct level. That is a plan that will work everywhere. Obviously, the hand counts have to agree with the machine results and the hand counts have to be done in front of observers from both of the main political parties. I have added the observer requirement–I don’t know if that is actually written into the law.

The article reports:

The Georgia Election Board has implemented a new rule requiring ballots to be hand counted at the precinct level by poll officers each day of voting. This ensures that the totals match with the machines, increasing transparency and accuracy in the election process. This decision comes after a 3-1 vote by the board, signaling a commitment to fair and secure elections. Hand counting ballots at the precinct level helps to prevent any discrepancies or errors that may arise from machine counting.

We need every state to do this.

Video Evidence

The Epoch Times posted an article today about voter fraud in Georgia. The article includes a video from One America News:

It is becoming very obvious that something illegal happened in Georgia when the votes were counted.

The article reports:

President Donald Trump’s legal team on Thursday presented surveillance footage to a Georgia State Legislature hearing that appears to show election ballot-counting workers kicking out poll observers late at night on Election Day before pulling out suitcases allegedly filled with ballots.

A woman who identified herself as Jackie Pick, a lawyer who is assisting with their legal case, said the team received video footage from State Farm Arena’s vote-tabulation center in Fulton County, Georgia. The team said that GOP poll watchers were not allowed to watch the counting process in the poll center.

But, according to Pick, an unusual occurrence took place later in the evening at around 10 p.m. ET. A woman—described as a blonde woman with braids—told workers to stop counting and told everyone to go home.

“Everyone clears out, including the Republican observers and the press, but four people stay behind and continue counting and tabulating well into the night,” Pick said. They counted unobserved until about 1 a.m.

Pick said that video footage shows Fulton County election workers waiting at their scanning areas until GOP poll watchers and reporters left the room before they started “scanning ballots,” ostensibly without any observation. Pick noted that it contravenes state and county law.

At 11 p.m., once everyone is gone, the workers are seen “pulling ballots out from underneath a table.” She asked if it’s normal to “store suitcases of ballots under a table cloth?” Pick said after reviewing footage that it’s not a normal procedure.

It’s not clear if election workers knew they were being recorded on camera.

The lawyer further alleged that the same woman with the blonde hair and braids, presumably the manager, had placed the table there earlier. It’s not clear where those ballots came from, and it’s not clear when the suitcases of thousands of ballots were placed under the table.

We definitely need a do-over.
