According to a report by The Georgia Star News, state and local officials in Georgia have failed to produce chain of custody documents for over 404,000 absentee votes placed in drop boxes months after the 2020 election.
According to the report, the state failed to produce chain of custody documentation for an estimated 404,691 absentee vote by mail ballots that were dropped off at county registrars and counted in the 2020 election.
This means that 67.5 percent of the 600,000 absentee vote by mail ballots counted in the state were found to be missing chain of custody documentation.
It’s worth noting that the outcome of Georgia’s 2020 election was decided by less than 12,000 votes, or nearly 3% of the 404,000 absentee votes cast by mail ballots deposited in drop boxes and counted by county registrars.
Fulton County, which is facing widespread criticism for various credible allegations of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election, is one of 35 scofflaw Georgia counties that have failed to comply with open records requests and provide the absentee ballot drop box transfer forms that they were required to keep in accordance with Georgia law.
In the 2020 election, nearly 300 drop boxes were used to collect absentee ballots, as authorized by Georgia Election Code Emergency Rule 183-1-14-0.8-.14, which was approved by the State Election Board, rather than a statute passed by the Georgia State Assembly, which states that drop box collection teams “shall complete and sign a ballot transfer form upon removing the ballots from the drop box, which shall be accompanied by a ballot transfer form, which shall be accompanied by a ballot transfer form, which shall
The drop boxes were sparked in part by donations to Georgia counties from the Center for Tech and Civic Life, a 501 (c) (3) founded by Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, of Facebook.
According to the report, Zuckerberg gave nearly $350 million to the CTCL for their 2020 election efforts, with more than $25 million going to the counties of Fulton, Gwinnett, Cobb, and DeKalb.
While some Georgia legislators have worked to improve election integrity and prohibit private funding of election administrations, it is unclear whether Georgia Governor Brian Kemp or Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger will join the fight, despite public outcry.
Despite credible allegations of widespread voter fraud, including the infamous video in the case of Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss, Republican concerns about the integrity of the 2020 election were echoed by President Donald Trump in a leaked phone call with Brad Raffensperger, who refused to acknowledge or address the credible evidence of mass voter fraud in his state.
Attorney Lin Wood has a comment on Telegram on March 7: “In my opinion, Georgia is the most corrupt state in our country.”
