When you double-check things, you often find things that you missed and that you would have otherwise forgotten.
For example, when my wife and I moved a few years ago the guy driving the moving truck asked me before we left if there was anything else that we needed to throw on the truck and not put in our car.
I did a quick walk around the house and while I did not find anything, I did realize we hadn’t swept the garage and that our broom was on the truck. He stopped for a few minutes to let me sweep the garage.
At the end of the day, no matter what you should always double-check something as important as an election.
A massive flaw in the Georgia elections was discovered in northwestern Floyd County, where 2,600 ballots were found that were never counted on Election Day.
Georgia began a hand recount of its ballots on Friday after President Donald Trump and the GOP requested an audit of that state’s results, which currently give an edge to Democrat Joe Biden. The deadline to finish the recount is Wednesday.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said Floyd County election officials did not upload votes from a memory card in a ballot-scanning machine, according to Fox News.
Floyd County Republican Party chairman Luke Martin said the incident was “concerning” but “doesn’t appear to be a widespread issue.”
“I’m glad the audit revealed it, and it’s important that all votes are counted,” Martin said.
Floyd County has shown the largest discrepancy, with other counties in the state coming close to their original numbers, Raffensperger said.
Gabriel Sterling of the Secretary of State’s Office said Trump will close the gap with Biden — who leads by about 14,000 votes out of the 5 million cast — by nearly 800 votes.
Sterling said during a news conference Monday evening that Floyd County’s elections director should resign, according to WSB-TV.
