(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- The office of the Secretary of State of Georgia has opened up an official investigation into how drop box ballots were handling in November’s presidential election. It comes after media reports showed how DeKalb County experienced multiple problems relating to chain of custody documentation, suggesting many votes may have been compromised in the process.
Just The News confirmed the existence of the new probe and noted that it comes after Dekalb County’s elections director was placed on extended leave. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who refused to work with former President Donald Trump to secure election integrity, confirmed that his office is ongoing and that Dekalb County has cooperated so far.
In a statement issued to the press, the office said that the investigation is not only examining whether DeKalb County properly complied with the documentation required by the State Election Board, but will also be probing whether the required procedures were undertaken when transporting ballots collected via drop boxes.
A spokesperson for DeKalb County didn’t return calls or respond to emails from journalists.
Previous reports revealed how some 43,907 of the 61,731 votes deposited in to drop boxes in last year’s elections – which is 72% – were counted in the official tally despite not having met the chain of custody requirements as outlined by the Georgia State Election Board.

It might feel hopeless at this stage for those concerned about election integrity, but if Brad Raffensperger is cooperating, it must be really serious.
