Georgia judge says yes to signature examination of Fulton County absentee ballots

Lingering concerns about the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election results have prompted calls for recounts and audits in jurisdictions across the country, and a judge in Georgia has just permitted the unsealing and examination of the signatures on roughly 145,000 absentee ballots in Fulton County amid a push to ensure election integrity and safety, as Breitbart reports.

In response to a lawsuit initiated last year by the group Voters Organized for Trusted Election Results in Georgia, Judge Brian Amero issued a one-page ruling providing that “petitioners shall be…permitted to inspect and scan said ballots in accordance with protocols and practices that will be set forth by further order of the court,” according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The advocacy group behind the litigation claimed in affidavits that “counterfeit ballots” in Fulton County were “counted and recounted,” casting doubts on the veracity of the eventual outcome, as NBC News noted.

Judge Amero’s ruling was lauded by Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who has been the subject of intense criticism from former President Donald Trump and his supporters for his alleged failure to investigate voter fraud claims with sufficient intensity.

In response to the decision, Raffensperger said, “From day one, I have encouraged Georgians with concerns about the election in their counties to pursue those claims through legal avenues. Fulton County has a long-standing history of election mismanagement that has understandably weakened voters’ faith in its system. Allowing this audit provides another layer of transparency and citizen engagement.”

Outspoken Raffensperger critic Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) also welcomed the ruling, saying in statement that “voter confidence in our election system is the bedrock of our republic,” adding that “inconsistencies in Fulton County’s November 2020 absentee ballots cast serious doubt on voters’ faith in our elections.”

Loeffler, together with the petitioners in the lawsuit, pointed specifically to claims of vote-counting malfeasance at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta last fall, with the senator lamenting that “poll watchers were told by election officials that counting had stopped for the night, only for surveillance video to reveal it resumed in the overnight hours,” as the Journal-Constitution noted.

Because the results in Georgia have long since been certified and subjected to a series of recounts, the absentee ballot review cannot overturn the election outcome, according to the Journal-Constitution. However, proponents of the examination argue that it is an important step in helping, as Loeffler put it, “to reassure Georgians that their voices are heard and their votes are counted.”

Though some might argue that the process of examining these ballots is a purely academic exercise with little practical effect, the fact is that the inconsistencies, eleventh-hour rule changes, and widespread claims of misconduct related to the 2020 vote in multiple states all require thorough investigation if confidence in our electoral system is ever to be revived.

    1. We need every state and county to do the same. This last election was so fraudulent that it was a disgrace on our country.

  1. God’s will will be done. I think that’s something you traitors forgot. Your Day of Reckoning is coming sleep while you can hell awaits you.

  2. Even if every state did an audit now and found Trump to be the winner, He cannot be placed in the white house as President. Now it would be impossible for Biden to run the country and change laws, The same would apply to Congress. There would be a giant upheaval in our country and in DC plus our courts of ruling people(courts). I am sure a convention of states would take place to change a few things within our system. One can only hope.

  3. Only God God almighty can straighten problems out and injustices and his word says whatsoever you sow you shall reap and it also says you can be sure your sins will find you out if this is a cover-up God will uncover it in his time because he is just and he will not allow lies to be continued you can count on God Jesus said I am the truth and the truth will eventually come out till then God has allowed what has happened and we should take it as a Reformation on we are not a righteous Nation we kill too many babies we cannot be great and murder or young

  4. I love it! I LOVE IT! IT NEEDS TO BE LOOKED INTO, IT HAS TO FOR OUR COUNTRIES RIGHT TO KNOW, OUR FREEDOM OF OUR RIGHTS OF AMERICANS! CORRUPTION CANNOT BE THE STRONGHOLD OF AMERICA! WE THE PEOPLE, NEED TO STAND STRONG AGAINST LIES, DECEIT, CORRUPT GOVERNMENT! 🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲💪💪👍🏻🙏🙋🏻‍♀️✝️

  5. The count in the middle of the night with no Republican poll watchers should have been thrown out and a recount done immediately. All of the ballots when they counted without poll watchers were, of course, for Biden. A statistically impossible vote count, and it happened in several other battleground states? Nobody stopped it or made them redo it immediately. That is one of the reasons that a majority of voters do not trust the vote count.

  6. All states and counties should do the same and prove once and for all that Biden is an illegitimate president and kick him out hard and fast.

  7. It’s more than time for the truth about the 2020 elections to come out. As far as I’m concerned, Donald Trump is still our rightful President and, once all the fraud and cheating comes out, I hope that he is put back in the White House and every single corrupt politician is sent to prison!
