(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who oversees elections in the state, confirmed on Saturday that investigators had been dispatched to the State Farm Arena in Fulton County in response to the discovery of an “issue” with the ballots. The news comes as the mainstream news media prematurely declares Democratic candidate Joe Biden the president-elect.
Raffensperger did not explain the nature of the problem, but said that the investigators were being dispatched to “secure the vote and protect all legal votes.”
“Officials are at State Farm Arena to rescan their work from Friday,” a press release from Raffensperger’s office said. “The Secretary of State has a monitor onsite, has sent additional investigators, and dispatched the Deputy Secretary of State as well to oversee the process to make sure to thoroughly secure the vote and protect all legal votes.”
The statement confirmed that observers from both political parties will also be there – something that the Trump campaign has demonstrated did not happen in Pennsylvania during the mysterious late-night counts.
Investigative journalist Brendan Keefe from Atlanta’s WXIA reported on Twitter that the development could “significantly affect the current Biden lead in Georgia.”
Major Georgia update:
Fulton County will rescan specific types of ballots. Some “were not captured” in the Friday night results. All provisional, military & overseas ballots scanned on Friday will be rescanned. The previous night’s upload will also be pulled and replaced.

He explained how it is unclear how many ballots are in question.
In an update, Keefe said that specific kinds of ballots will be scanned as some “were not captured” in the Friday night results.
“All provisional, military & overseas ballots scanned on Friday will be rescanned,” he said. “The previous night’s upload will also be pulled and replaced.”
A statement from Fulton County said that the recount was taking place “out of an abundance of caution.”
Richard Barron, Fulton County’s Election Director, said that the problem was a result of a failure to transfer files to a server.
The recounts in places like Fulton County could potentially have an impact on the result of the presidential race, with only 7,200 votes separating President Trump and Joe Biden.
