Election officials in Floyd County, Georgia – where Dominion Voting Systems were used – reported locating over 2,600 additional ballots Monday after a hand recount was ordered in the state.
According to Floyd County Board of Elections chairman Tom Rees, 2,631 more votes were added after a hand recount observed by both parties, accounting for 6.8 percent of the vote in the county.
The missing ballots were from early voting, and not day-of or absentee ballots, reports CoosaValleyNews.com.
The Northwest Georgia News reports Rees gave a tentative count of an additional 1,643 votes for President Donald Trump, 865 for Joe Biden, and 16 for Jo Jorgensen.
Floyd County GOP chairman Luke Martin pondered if the same error could possibly be found in other larger jurisdictions such as Fulton County, home to the highly-populated Democrat stronghold of Atlanta.
“It is scary that this happened in Floyd County. Imagine what the numbers could look like in places like Fulton County,” Martin reportedly stated.
“It appears that our elections office did not misplace any ballots, rather it appears as if this is a computer software mishap with the Dominion system.”
In a statement to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, however, Martin appeared to walk back his comment, saying, “It’s very concerning… But this doesn’t appear to be a widespread issue. I’m glad the audit revealed it, and it’s important that all votes are counted.”
