Recount in Georgia County After Officials Discover “Issue” in Count

FULTON COUNTY, GA – On Saturday, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said Fulton County election officials are going to rescan ballots that were scanned on Friday.  The county is where one election worker’s actions caused a viral video sensation.  That worker appeared to have been throwing out ballots, but election officials say that was not the case.  On Saturday, Raffensperger said a recount at that facility will be conducted, but did not say why.

“Fulton has discovered an issue involving reporting from their work on Fri,” Raffensperger said.  “Officials are at State Farm Arena to rescan that work. I have a monitor & investigators on site. Also sent Dep. SOS as well to oversee the process to make sure to secure the vote and protect all legal votes.”
