Georgia To Recount All Votes in Presidential Race By Hand

They should count the Purdue race while they're at it...

It doesn't matter what happens in Georgia. Trump can't win without PA. And nothing is going to change the PA results.

It's better not to recount the Senate races. The last thing you would want is for Perdue to increase from 49.7% to 50%. At least now there will be a runoff with just two candidates.

This is also an insult to all the counters the poll workers who risked their lives during a damned pandemic so they could sit there for 12 hours or more counting ballots all day and all night. Oh.

It was already headed for a recount, anyway.

0.5 margin is automatic recount if one side requests it in GA. Since Trump did just that days ago, this was going to happen. Nothing new and nothing to see here.

It was always going to recount, and Georgia will have no impact on the math. If the results stand, Trump will have no choice but to get his shit prepared to move to Mar-a-Lago.

by Anonymousreply 2011/11/2020

The thing is, they should have a scanable sheet of paper for each voter that can be run through their scan machines. Why bother with a manual recount? Save the results from the election (which should have already been done), clear the memory, run some tests to make sure software is functioning as advertised and rescan. See how close it is to your original count. That would take a day. You could dispatch people to help out the counties who are more challenged with the technology.

I live in GA, so I guess we will just do us. Like usual.

Can they go back and count all the votes from the 2018 Georgia governor's race, while they're at it?

by Anonymousreply 2311/11/2020

I voted here in Chatham County (Savannah). I made all my selections on a screen then I hit "print" and took that printout to a scanner of some sort. The paper was fed in and stayed inside. I'm assuming all those printouts were saved and that's what will be recounted by hand. So there's no chance of hanging chads or improperly filled in bubbles. All the computer printouts should be uniform. But I have no idea about the mail-in ballots.

[Quote] What's the agenda here by the Repubs.

You answered your own question.

[Quote] This could drag on for weeks.

The deadline for electors to be sent to the electoral college is December 8th. The plan, as was outlined by Barton Gellman in the Atlantic, is to make it so that no [italic] definitive [/italic] winner is determined so that the legislature can send a rival slate of electors to congress to vote for Trump, throwing the whole count into chaos. The coup attempt is happening right before our very eyes and Biden's team hasn't even so much as responded to it, despite multiple advisors and politicians sounding the alarms. This is not going to end well.

Apparently they’re just counting the ballots, not tallying the specific votes.

“For the hand recount, election officers will work with the paper ballots in batches, dividing them into piles for each candidate. Then they will run the piles through machines to count the number of ballots for each candidate. The scanners will not read the data on the ballots, simply count them.

“Raffensperger said the process will have “plenty of oversight,” with both parties having the opportunity to observe.

“After results from the hand recount are certified, the losing campaign can then request another recount, which will be performed by scanners that would read and tally the votes, Raffensperger said.”

With an official ethics complaint comes an investigation. I suspect that an investigation is THE LAST THING Lindseybelle wants. Time will tell about what that investigation reveals.

R67, you're wrong. I live in Georgia and many people are totally disgusted with the weak asshole we have as governor. He had his nose up Trump's ass and fucked up Corona big time. The Mayor of Atlanta made him look SO bad even the racists are fed up. OTOH, our Secretary of State and the people working under him, are old time Republicans. They're Conservative. They are also ethical. They have some integrity. In fact, I think our Secretary of State may, in fact, be the future of the Republican Party here. Georgians are proud people. They don't like to be portrayed as ignorant stereotypical Southerners. Most racists are passive aggressive. They will be polite while they cut your throat. They abhor violence, and embrace decency. They take pride in the CDC, in our university systems, Especially UG-A and Georgia Tech. They are proud of CNN because it is right here. Georgia has emerged as part of the "new South" and they see our governor as regressive and well as incompetent.

Then quit proving it by requiring absolutely no standards when it comes to white candidates. You have Loeffler and Perdue who both profited off of this pandemic via insider trading and they will STILL get the majority of white votes. So these two -rather than put the people of GA first- saw a way to profit off of illness and death of their constituents among others and southern white will once again and overwhelmingly show us what a pox they are on this country with their vote. But at least they're not a black minister or a young Jewish guy, right?

White Southerners are still overwhelmingly shits, that's why AL now has a moron for Senator. That's why SC allowed evil, lying, treasonous, anti-democratic scum back, that's why KY allowed their demon back, that's why a vile witch like Blackburn is in TN. List goes on and on of all of the vile senators representing that region all thanks to white Southerners with no decency who still can't accept they lost the damned war and that other races are not subhuman and they are not in any way superior.

Well, as I understand it, the Governor of Georgia, a slimy Trump asslicker named Brian Kemp who has absolutely no spine, he is a coward and not real bright, he has until Saturday Night, November 21st to sign off so the Certification by the SoS is done, but the Governor has to sign off too. Now he is entirely in Kelly Loeffler's pockets and he has been cowering in a corner on the sidelines since all t his recount shit started. There is a strong corporate presence in Georgia. I am hoping those people will lean hard on the little bastard and force him to do the right thing. He would really fuck up if he were to agree that there was fraud or corruption in Georgia's process. he is the guy who was Secretary of State when he ran for governor and stole the election from Stacey Abrams. He comes up for re-election in 2022. IMO he is fucked.
