No fraud found in Cobb County signature audit: Raffensperger says


A signature audit of over 15,000 ballots in #Cobb #County, #Ga., found no fraudulent absentee votes, according to #Georgia’s secretary of state’s office.

#Secretary of #State #Brad #Raffensperger’s office teamed up with the #Georgia #Bureau of #Investigation to review what they determined was a “statistically significant sample of signatures on oath envelopes” cast in the county on #Election #Day.

#He said this is the third time the state confirmed the election’s outcome and pointed to two earlier recounts. #He said his office has been focused on “calling balls and strikes” and “in this case, three strikes against the voter claims and they’re out.”

“#This audit disproves the only credible allegations the #Trump campaign had against the strength of #Georgia’s signature match process,” he said, according to the #Atlanta #Journal-Constitution.

#President #Trump and his legal team have questioned the validity of absentee ballots in the state that helped propel #Joe #Biden to a 12,670 vote victory, where 5 million ballots were cast.

#Trump took to #Twitter on #Tuesday to call for signature verification in #Fulton #County—which includes #Atlanta. #Some of his supporters took to social media to question the odds that there was no fraud identified in over 15,000 ballots.

The audit looked into 15,118 ABM [Absentee-by-Mail] out of the 150,431 received in the county. A press release from #Raffensperger’s office said the audit found “no fraudulent absentee ballots” with a 99% confidence threshold.

#But #Raffensperger’s statement tried to identify the authentication process. There were 10 ballots that had some kind of issue that required officials to contact the voters, and the issue was resolved, the statement said.
