Opinion: There’s a Serious Problem with Georgia’s Counting of Ballots, Votes


If there’s one thing the 2020 presidential race has shown, it’s the extent to which negligence and fraud have tainted this election.

Only a handful of states are currently doing recounts and audits at this time; if thousands of uncounted and un-uploaded votes are being found in two Georgia counties, what’s to say there aren’t thousands of other unaccounted-for votes in other counties or states? At this point, each and every state should recount and audit their votes to ensure the counting and inclusion of every legal ballot.

Why this brokenness is so problematic

Georgia is home to two runoff races that will take place in January. Right now, Georgia GOP Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are running against Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff. In order for the Senate to remain under majority control, Loeffler and Perdue must win their races.

Already, both runoffs are shaping up to be tight races. This is all the more reason why the counting of every single legal vote is imperative. Thousands of uncounted votes in these runoffs could determine whether or not the Senate become tied or controlled by Democrats.
