11/6 @ 8:15 AM: 8,197 Votes Still Out in Georgia

Votes in Floyd, Gwinnett, Laurens, and Taylor counties still outstanding.

With counting continuing in numerous counties throughout Georgia, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said that as of 8:15 a.m. Friday there are approximately 8,197 ballots still outstanding.

  • Floyd County: 444
  • Gwinnett County; 4,800
  • Laurens County: 1,797
  • Taylor County: 456

An additional approximately 8,900 military and overseas absentee ballots have been sent out to requesters but not yet returned. Such ballots, if postmarked by Election Day, can be accepted within three days of Election Day.

“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.”

    I WANT A RECOUNT OR A NEW VOTE! We are going thru this evil in Georgia…and, we are not happy. Stacy Abrams blatantly cheated and ballot harvested (even for 6 days after the election was officially over) in our 2018 GA. elections and has not served 1 day in prison. We knew the cheat was on, there is no excuse for this happening again in Georgia. #BradRaffensperger , #GovBrianKemp , #GAGChrisCarr
