Election Workers Scored Thousands of GA Ballots Rejected by Machines, Hand-Picked Votes: Report

By

If the voter’s intention is unclear to the human reviewer, in Georgia the ballot is to be marked “spoiled” and disregarded. At least that’s the way things are supposed to be.

But maybe not in Fulton County, according to an in-depth report by Just the News.

Absentee ballots in Georgia tell voters that if they make a mistake filling out their ballot, the voter should mark “spoiled” on the ballot, return it to the county board of registrars and get a new ballot.

However, some ballots are more “spoiled” than others. The word could be written on the ballot and it still count, Just the News reported.

For instance, Just the News cited one ballot that had been marked for both Donald J. Trump and Joseph R. Biden, with the words “No Spoiled” scrawled above Trump’s name.

Despite the clear intent of the voter — that the ballot be considered spoiled — the ballot was adjudicated for Biden, with the notation “Mark removed for Donald J. Trump.” It should be noted that in every other race on that ballot, the check mark was in a Democratic candidate’s box, so that might well have been the right call.

However, Just the News reported another ballot that also had the word “spoiled” written on it, where the only presidential check was next to Trump’s name and every other race was checked for the Republican candidate.

That ballot was adjudicated with “Mark removed for Donald J. Trump” and every other Republican candidate.

In other words, it was a truly spoiled ballot that counted for nothing.
