ELLIJAY, Ga – The plaintiffs in the Fulton County election integrity case have amended their lawsuit again after discovering an alleged 60 percent error rate within the 200 dpi images.
VoterGa compared the election tally sheets from the Secretary of State’s Office to the 200 dpi images of ballots from Fulton County. After conducting the initial analysis they claimed the tally sheets didn’t match the ballot images. According to Garland Favorito, founder of VoterGa, some of the tally sheets depicted 100 to 1 votes cast in favor of Joe Biden, but the ballot images begged to differ.
Favorito added that he “believes [Secretary of State’s Office and Fulton] covered it up.”
Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has continued to stand by his statements that a fair and honest election was conducted in Georgia. He has voiced support of Georgia voter reform efforts, claiming it would not result in voter suppression. Raffensperger added on Twitter that he’s always encouraged voters to use legal channels when pursuing election disputes in their counties.
“We thought the ballot images were going to say 100 to nothing,” Favorito said of the discovery.
The ballot images were made public by the General Assembly and the tally sheets are available on the Secretary of State’s website.
According to VoterGa: “Fulton Co. failed to include over 100,000 tally sheets, including more than 50,000 from mail-in ballots, when the results were originally published for the full hand count audit conducted by the office of the Secretary of State for the November 3, 2020, election. Those tally sheets remained missing until late February when the county supplemented their original audit results.”
With the new information, VoterGa is hoping it will convince Henry County Superior Court Judge Brian Amero of the need to physically inspect the ballots as well ass 600 dpi images. With 600 dpi images, the group can detect counterfeit ballots.
Favorito also believes they’ve uncovered enough information to expand election investigations into other counties in Georgia. As for next steps in the Fulton County case, he doesn’t expect the case to be back in court until August.
