Election officials have sent a team of investigators to examine a ballot “issue” that was discovered over the weekend.
Georgia has sent a team of investigators to Fulton County to “secure the vote and protect all legal votes.”
“Fulton County has discovered an issue involving reporting from their work on Friday. Officials are at State Farm Arena to rescan their work from Friday,” Raffensperger said. “The Secretary of State has a monitor onsite, has sent additional investigators, and dispatched the Deputy Secretary of State as well to oversee the process to make sure to thoroughly secure the vote and protect all legal votes. Observers from both political parties are there as well.”
Brendan Keefe, the chief investigator at Atlanta’s WXIA, says that the issue “*may* significantly affect the current Biden lead in Georgia.”
Major Georgia update:
Fulton County will rescan specific types of ballots. Some “were not captured” in the Friday night results. All provisional, military & overseas ballots scanned on Friday will be rescanned. The previous night’s upload will also be pulled and replaced.

Fulton County released a statement stating that some ballots weren’t “scanned.”
“Out of an abundance of caution, all provisional, military, and [Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act] ballots scanned on Friday, November 6 will be rescanned tonight,” the statement read. “The upload made last night will be pulled and replaced with tonight’s rescanned file.”
Fulton County Election Director Richard Barron, said that the issue was because of a failure to transfer files to a server, necessitating the rescanning of some ballots.
The Washington Examiner reported, “Barron said his team rescanned 342 ballots on Saturday ‘so that we balanced out,’ adding that previously some files did not transfer to a server and some ballots had to be scanned on Saturday. He said he did not know if a software issue or physical was to blame.”
So what else didn’t get “scanned?”
