Political Rewind: Counties Wrap Up Final Tallies As Statewide Election Audit Approaches Deadline
Wednesday on Political Rewind: Counties have until midnight to finish their audits of ballots cast in the November presidential election. No evidence of election fraud has been found. The audit revealed memory cards from voting machines in two counties were not properly uploaded. The votes were added to the final tally. After accounting for those ballots, Biden’s lead dropped to about 13,000 votes. The Secretary of State’s office said the post-election process catching mistakes was a normal step in certifying results not a sign of wrongdoing. Long before Republican senators began publicly denouncing how Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger handled the voting there, he withstood pressure from the campaign of Donald Trump to endorse the president for reelection. Our panel of experts break down the latest in Georgia's election races. Our panelists included: Eric Tanenblatt, Republican strategist; Greg Bluestein, Politics Reporter at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution; Riley Bunch — Georgia Statehouse Reporter at CNHI News; and Teri Anulewicz, State Representative (D-Smyrna).
