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.
