Georgia’s Election Official Says 1,000 People Voted Twice


From The Hill: 

Georgia’s secretary of State said Tuesday that 1,000 people voted twice in the state’s June primary election and warned that prosecutors may pursue felony charges after an ongoing investigation is completed.

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R), speaking to reporters outside the state Capitol in Atlanta, said about 150,000 voters who applied for absentee ballots also appeared in person at polling places on election day.

Although poll workers managed to screen out the vast majority of these voters, he said, about 1,000 votes “worked their way through the system.” Some of the double votes were counted in election results, but did not affect the outcome of the races, he said.

Election experts contacted by The Hill expressed skepticism over Raffensperger’s claim of widespread fraud in Georgia’s June primary election and August runoff.

“That number seems extraordinarily high relative to other recent statewide elections,” said Ned Foley, a law professor at Ohio State University who has written extensively about voter fraud, which he says is rare.
