11/4 – 8:30 PM:107,751 Ballots Still Out in Georgia

We went from 185,000 at 4:15 PM to 107k at 8:30 PM.

This is a press release from the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office from 11/4 at 8:43 PM

With counting continuing in numerous counties throughout Georgia, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said that as of 8:30 p.m. today there are approximately 107,751 ballots still outstanding.

  • 122,535 at 8:00 PM
  • 149,350 at 7:30 PM

  • 185,000 at 4:15 PM

  • 200,000 at 4PM

“Officials in numerous counties are continuing to count ballots, with strong security protocols in place to protect the integrity of our election,” said Raffensperger. “We have long anticipated – and said publicly – that counting would most likely take place into Wednesday night and perhaps Thursday morning. We’re on pace to accomplish that responsibly, ensuring that the voice of every eligible voter is heard. It’s important to act quickly, but it’s more important to get it right.”

Raffensperger noted numerous security measures in place to secure the vote and increase public confidence in the electoral process:

Absentee drop boxes were locked at 7 p.m. Tuesday evening, preventing illegal voting or potential fraud.
Surveillance cameras monitored drop boxes at all times.
State monitor is in the room with Fulton County for all counts and the public is welcome to observe any county as an added layer of transparency.
A pre-certification audit will provide additional confidence that the votes were accurately counted.

“We’re well aware that with a close presidential election and the possibility of runoffs in some elections that the eyes of the state and the nation are upon Georgia at this time,” Raffensperger said. “We’re as anxious as anyone to see the final results and to start work on certification and planning for our runoff elections. As the work goes on, I want to assure Georgia voters that every legal vote was cast and accurately counted.”

    WHY DIDN’T THE GOVERNOR CALL GA. FOR TRUMP (51%) BY 2 AM THIS MORNING? ELECTION VOTING WAS OVER NOV. 3RD AT 7 PM IN GA. – TODAY (11/04/2020) DEMS ARE GOING HOUSE TO HOUSE IN ATLANTA HELPING PEOPLE VOTE – JUST LIKE STACY ABRAMS DID IN 2018! Our biggest problems come out of Fulton & Dekalb counties! I am giving Governor Kemp a piece of my mind via phone calls. I have been on our sorry GA. ATTY. GENERAL CHRIS CARR for 2 years about not arresting Stacy Abrams (I would have been under a federal jail for what Abrams did in our 2018 elections)! And now, it looks like we are getting Stacy Abrams BFF Kelly Loeffler as Senator…I know only 1 person that voted for Insider Trading Loeffler, we all voted Doug Collins!
    HOW COULD ANYONE HAVE ANY CONFIDENCE IN GEORGIA`s VOTES? STACY ABRAMS BLATANTLY HARVESTED BALLOTS FOR 6 DAYS AFTER 2018 ELECTION AND HAS NOT SERVED 1 DAY IN JAIL / PRISON ! (Yes, ballot harvesting is STILL illegal in GA. )! AND, THE DEMOCRATS ARE DOING IT AGAIN!
