Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R), is now relenting to demands that a statewide signature-matching audit take place.
On Thursday, Raffensperger’s office announced that they would capitulate to a litany of requests for a statewide audit of signatures on mail-in and absentee ballots. President Trump’s team has repeatedly asked for this to take place only to be sidestepped.
Raffensperger said the review of these ballots will take place in all 159 Georgia counties, and is meant to rebuild trust in the election process.
“Despite endless lawsuits and wild allegations from Washington, DC pundits, we have seen no actual evidence of widespread voter fraud, though we are investigating all credible reports,” Raffensperger said. “Nonetheless, we look forward to working with the University of Georgia on this signature match review to further instill confidence in Georgia’s voting systems.”
“On Thursday, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced a statewide move to *MATCH SIGNATURES* to their absentee ballots in all 159 counties in the state.”

The announcement of the audit comes with less than three weeks to go before Georgia’s twin Senate run-off elections. The January 5, 2021, elections will determine which party holds the majority in the upper chamber and whether the country will fall to one-party rule at the federal level.
It should be noted that no alterations from the original standard operating procedures for polling places or tabulation centers have been issued by Raffensperger’s office for the run-off elections. In fact, the same vulnerable and unreliable Dominion Voting Systems machines and software will be used on January 5, 2021.
The audit, which is being shopped as a “study,” will be conducted in partnership with the University of Georgia. Officials say the audit will analyze a arbitrary sample of absentee and mail-in ballots. In doing so the examination will review the Election Day signature-matching process used statewide, checking the signatures on random samples of ballots from each county.
“We are confident that elections in Georgia are secure, reliable and effective,” Mr. Raffensperger said.
Why would Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger refuse to release the list of newly registered voters? What is he trying to hide? Why? Georgia legislature should demand list asap.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation will help, and the audit is expected to wrap up in two weeks.
Videos exhibited a wide variety of polling place and tabulation center irregularities that would in any normal election cycle evidence vote fraud and ballot tampering. The videos exist in tandem with scores of eyewitness testimony, sworn under the penalty of perjury, which codify acts of ballot tampering.
At every turn and in every court, this tangible evidence of vote fraud, ballot tampering, and a stolen election have been ultimately ignored.
