Scores of Ballots in Georgia Found to Be Altered by Election Workers After Being Rejected by Machines

A bombshell report helps explain what happened in Georgia the day after the November 2020 election.

Trump watched his lead suddenly evaporate in Georgia.

Images of ballots recently obtained are beginning to explain why.

Dominion Voting machines rejected any ballots where the voter had filled in boxes for both Trump and his Democratic opponent Joe Biden. This causes an error known as an “overvote.”

The machine rejects the ballot and neither candidate gets a tally. The ballot should receive human review.

Images of the ballot show that the “voter messily scribbled a large blob in the box to select Trump as president while also putting a thinner check mark next to Biden’s name.”

The ballot was first scanned and rejected by Machine 5150 at 6:10 p.m. ET on Nov. 4.

Then a panel of humans decided the vote should be awarded to Biden, with the notation “mark removed for Donald J. Trump.” A can see that ballot here:

The process is known as “adjudication,” where human judgment is substituted for machine scanning in cases where voters incorrectly filled out a paper ballot.

Reports show that approximately 3% of absentee ballots, over 5,000 of the 148,000 absentee ballots cast, required some form of human intervention in Georgia’s largest county. Logs obtained from Fulton County confirm this information.

More from Just the News:

Scores of additional ballots that same day had checks manually removed next to Trump’s name as well as many other candidates up and down the ticket β€” Libertarians, Democrats and write-ins alike β€” and the votes awarded instead to other candidates…

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.
