Fulton County Election Official Admits Chain of Custody Documents Missing for 2020 Absentee Ballots Deposited in Drop Boxes

 

In a stunning admission about the critical chain of custody documents for absentee ballots deposited into drop boxes in the November 3, 2020 election, a Fulton County election official told The Georgia Star News on Wednesday that “a few forms are missing” and that “some procedural paperwork may have been misplaced.”

A Star News analysis of drop box ballot transfer forms for absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes provided by Fulton County in response to an Open Records Request showed that 385 transfer forms out of an estimated 1,565 transfer forms Fulton County said should have been provided are missing – a number that is significantly greater than “a few” by any objective standard.

On Sunday, The Star News published a story which included the files containing digital images of the 1,180 transfer forms that Fulton County did provide. Those digital images can be viewed here.

This is the first time that any election official at either the state or county level from a key battleground state has made an admission of significant error in election procedures for the November 3, 2020 election.

The admission of missing chain of custody documents by a Fulton County official is important for several reasons that cut to the very core of public confidence in the outcome of the 2020 presidential election:

  • President Biden was certified as the winner of Georgia’s 16 Electoral College votes in the 2020 election by the narrow margin of less than 12,000 votes over former President Donald Trump out of a total of 5 million votes cast statewide.
  • The total number of absentee ballots whose chain of custody was purportedly documented in these 385 missing Fulton County absentee ballot transfer forms was 18,901, more than 6,000 votes greater than the less than 12,000 vote margin of Biden’s certified victory in the state.
  • Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has taken no action in 156 of Georgia’s 159 counties to secure copies of any absentee ballot drop box transfer forms and review them for accuracy and consistency with reported absentee ballot vote counts. In April his office announced investigations into three small counties that “failed to do their absentee ballot transfer forms” in the November 2020 election in compliance with rules and regulations.
  • More than seven months after the November 3 election, 28 Georgia counties have failed to respond at all to The Star News Open Records Requests to produce absentee ballot drop box transfer forms. To date, The Star News has obtained absentee ballot drop box forms from 59 counties that provide chain of custody documentation for 266,492 absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes during the November 3, 2020 election, which means that no chain of custody documentation has been produced for about 333,000 absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes out of an estimated 600,000 absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes during that election.
  • As The Star News reported on Sunday, “These absentee ballots are at the center of a lawsuit filed by Garland Favorito and eight other Georgia residents, who have sued Fulton County to produce these ballots for a forensic audit. Henry County Superior Court Judge Brian Amero ruled in May that this audit could proceed, but allowed the plaintiffs to review only the digital images of these 145,000 absentee ballots. . .  An estimated 145,000 absentee ballots – between 75,000 and 78,000 of which were originally deposited in drop boxes and between 67,000 and 70,000 of which were sent via the United States Postal Service – were transferred from the centralized counting facility at the State Farm Arena in downtown Atlanta to the EPC [the Election Preparation Center warehouse located at 1365 English St. NW, Atlanta]  at some point after the counting of votes for the November 3 election was completed. . . Fulton County subsequently filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, and Judge Amero put the audit on hold. Judge Amero has scheduled a hearing later this month to consider Fulton County’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit and stop the audit.”

The admission of missing chain of custody documents came as a response to The Star News follow-up to Fulton County’s incomplete responses to Open Records Requests for the transfer forms that document the chain of custody of absentee ballots placed by voters into 37 drop boxes installed through Fulton County over the 41-day November 2020 presidential election period that began on September 24 and ended on November 3, election day.

“As we review the documents provided to you and our daily log.  We noticed that a few forms are missing, it seems when 25 plus core personnel were quarantined due to positive COVID-19 outbreak at the EPC, some procedural paperwork may have been misplaced,” Mariska Bodison (pictured above) of Fulton County Registration & Elections told The Star News in a statement emailed on Wednesday, June 9.

Ms. Bodison is the Board Secretary for the Fulton County Board of Registration and Elections. Richard Barron is the Election Director for Fulton County Registration & Elections.

Seven months after the election, Fulton County has failed to provide the transfer forms for approximately 19,000 drop box absentee ballots, The Star News has reported.

The transfer forms are a requirement of the State Election Board Emergency Rule 83-1-14-0.8-.14, promulgated by the State Election Board on July 1, 2020, to document the critical chain of custody of absentee ballots collected from drop boxes and transferred to the county registrar.

The Star News made an initial open records request to Fulton County election officials in December 2020 and subsequent follow-up requests to obtain all of the transfer forms.  On two occasions, Fulton County provided numerous documents.

The first time, in February 2021, Fulton County provided two PDF files with labels ending in “BX1” and BX3.”

Not only did it appear that a file with a label ending in “BX2” was missing, the number of ballots represented on the transfer forms fell far short of the estimated number of ballots deposited in the drop boxes.

The Star News followed up with Fulton County, pointing out the incomplete records.

Fulton County responded in early May by opting to provide a thumb drive they said included a re-scan all of the documents from their first attempt plus those that were missing, rather than providing the “BX2” file or just the missing transfer forms.

The thumb drive contained 30 files of drop box transfer forms, and also also included a spreadsheet that Fulton County used to document the number of absentee ballots and the ballot applications collected from the 37 drop boxes over the 41-day voting period. According to that spreadsheet, those 30 files should have contained 1,565 drop box transfer forms.

The Star News’s detailed analysis of the files provided by Fulton County revealed that they included only 1,180 drop box transfer forms provided chain of custody documents for 59,042 absentee ballots placed into drop boxes.

Yet, the Fulton County spreadsheet showed that about 79,000 absentee ballots were collected from drop boxes (When a mathematical error in the Fulton County spreadsheet that double counted a number of votes is corrected, the total number of absentee ballots Fulton County says were collected from drop boxes is about 75,000.)

On May 17, The Star News notified Fulton County via email that transfer forms for about 25 percent of the absentee ballots placed into drop boxes where chain of custody documentation in the form of 385 drop box transfer forms were still missing.

The Star News’ email to Fulton County can be read here:

Dear Fulton County,

We are in receipt of a thumb drive which we picked up in person from your office on May 3, 2021 that contains scans of documents responsive to our Open Records Request Reference No: R002457-040821 for chain of custody ballot transfer forms for absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes in Fulton County for the November 3 election.

We have reviewed those documents, and it appears that you provided documentation for about 59,000 ballots. The accompanying spreadsheet you provided – a file named “Copy of Absentee Ballot Drop Box – Daily Count – November 3 2020.xlsx” – said there were about 78,000 ballots cast in the November 3, 2020 election.

Please:
(1) Provide us with the “missing” documentation on these 19,000 ballots
(2) Explain the discrepancy

Thank you,

Tiffany Morgan
The Georgia Star News

After initially replying that they needed more time to review the request, Fulton County responded on June 9, which included the stunning admission of the misplaced paperwork.

As we review the documents provided to you and our daily log.  We noticed that a few forms are missing, it seems when 25 plus core personnel were quarantined due to positive COVID-19 outbreak at the EPC, some procedural paperwork may have been misplaced.

Please feel free to contact me at if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Mariska Bodison

On October 15, Fox 5 Atlanta reported on the COVID-19 outbreak at the Fulton County Elections Preparation Center (EPC), located at 1365 English St. NW, Atlanta, where 13 of 60 employees tested positive between October 13 and 15.

People who work in the warehouse are involved with logic and accuracy testing, packing supply boxes and collecting ballot drop boxes, according to the Fox 5 report.

The report, however, appears to contradict what Fulton County election officials are now saying, in terms of the numbers of employees quarantined and the impact to the work.

“Despite the news, county officials reassure there is no disruption to the work,” Fox 5 reported.

In fact, Fulton County Director of Registration and Elections Richard Barron said, “Processing absentee ballots.  No there has been no delay.  With regard to logic and accuracy testing, the only delay was probably yesterday when they were getting tested.”

On October 21, Barron told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that all of the staff working at the EPC had been moved to work out of the World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Fulton County’s emailed response to The Star News also seems to downplay the importance of the chain of custody documents by referring to the transfer forms as “procedural paperwork.”

Even though Fulton County officials first agreed that forms were missing, they then went on to disagree with the numbers The Star News presented to them.

We do not agree with the 19,000 you referenced in your inquiry.  Please advise at how you derived at this number and we will investigate.

As The Star News reported, using the Fulton County spreadsheet as a guide, at least 385 transfer forms providing chain of custody documentation for 18,901  ballots have yet to be provided by Fulton County.

In addition to random absentee ballot collections for which the transfer forms were not provided, there were at least five full days – October 7, 9, 10, 11 and 20 – for which no transfer forms have been provided.  Four of those dates were before the COVID-19 quarantine cited by the Fulton County election official as the cause for the “misplaced paperwork.”

This copy of the Fulton County spreadsheet, which The Star News has highlighted in yellow, shows the 385 drop box collections and associated 18,901 absentee ballots for which no transfer forms have been provided by Fulton County.

Further information on the absentee ballot drop box transfer forms provided by Fulton County is detailed in a spreadsheet compiled and reported on by The Star News here.

In April, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced that just three small Georgia counties–Coffee, Grady, and Taylor –“failed to do their absentee ballot transfer forms” in compliance with Georgia Rules and Regulations. Raffensperger’s office made no effort to review the manner in which several other much larger counties that The Star News previously reported were in violation of the State Election Board’s Emergency Code Rule; specifically Cobb County, DeKalb County and Fulton County.

Raffensperger’s spokesman, Ari Schaffer, however, admitted to The Star News that the Secretary of State’s office never looked at the chain of custody documents, they merely “confirmed with the relevant counties that they had them.”

Earlier this month, the Georgia GOP convention censured Secretary of State Raffensperger for “dereliction of his Constitutional duty.” That dereliction of duty included, “Undermining the security of our elections by allowing mass mailings of absentee applications by his office and third parties which created opportunities for fraud and overwhelmed election offices; rendering accurate signature matching nearly impossible; allowing ballot drop boxes without proper chain of custody; and ignoring sworn affidavits and disregarding evidence of voter fraud,” (emphasis added).

      385 out of 1565 is hardly just ‘a few’ and more like almost a 1/4 or 24.29 % to be precise

      And there’s the one known example about documented as received 20 minutes before documented on site as retrieved from a drop box location … somewhere in the country but don’t recall exactly where..

      Anyone can make a mistake but this is an important process for which people are well paid to document according to legally defined policy and procedure by specific State legislative statute requirements.

      It’s obviously not just a bunch of ‘human error’ mistakes but a concerted effort at fraud ( a sloppy one at that) and also only one aspect of a far larger CYOA cover up scramble falling apart by the hour.

    Federal judges said the issue is moot.
    Federal judges said no evidence .
    Federal judges said the election are states issue. Federal guy Garland said” we are going to make it our business and scrutinize all forensic audits’ ROTFLMFAO. Suddenly, it’s now a federal issue and federal jurisdiction. USA hadn’t had a real duly elected President since Raegan but even Raegan May have cheated too. Who the heck knows? . Clinton got in by fraud. Bush got in by fraud. Obama got in by fraud. Hilary almost got in by the same fraud, but they were taken by surprise with overwhelming votes for Trump. Now, Biden got in by fraud. The high ranking Republicans also get elected by fraud. What a pity . The illusion of “ democracy “ in America. Is just that. An illusion. And it took a reality tv guy to unintentionally expose the hidden , dark reality of the Washington cesspool. After all Macron did say to Biden .” It’s good to have you back in the club. I am not cheering for any sides in this. I am genuinely disappointed in America and it’s leaders. It’s not even an emotion of anger of the betrayal . It’s sheer gut wrenching , depressing disappointment I am feeling about all of this.

    1. Kevin

      You say the Republican Presidents were elected by fraud. We have massive evidence of Democrat fraud and no evidence of Republican fraud. If all Republican Presidents were elected by fraud, please provide something to back that up. I have no doubt that there is fraud in the Republican Party but the evidence collected points to the donkey party.

      Federal Judges who refused to give the evidence a hearing were dead wrong, and violated the Constitutional rights of 330,000,000 million Americans to our Constitutional guarantee to “a Republican form of government” – which OBLIGATES government to provide proof that every ballot counted came from a legitimate, eligible voter.

      Virtually every State already scans incoming ballots. Forensic audits of the ballots should not be an “extreme measure performed only if sufficient evidence can be provided IN ADVANCE to justify it” – it should be a MINIMUM integrity check of every ballot in every election nation wide. Thousands of ballots received were never subjected to the mandatory signature check – invalid. Tens of thousands of supposedly “mail in” ballots in each swing state had no fold – impossible and therefore illegitimate – or were completed by a PRINTER, not a pen or pencil – illegitimate and fraudulent. 30,000 ballots in Georgia alone were pristine (impossible), sequentially numbered and identically marked – clearly fraudulent.

      In each case, in each state, ALWAYS the illegitimate ballots were marked for the senile Chinese puppet occupying the White House. This is no longer a representative Republic, it is a banana Republic.

  100. […] The admission of missing chain of custody documents by a Fulton County official is important for several reasons that cut to the very core of public confidence in the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. (read more) […]

    Thank you ” Star” for giving us this information and more than that keeping the fire under Fulton County and others for what we know is Cheating! Raffensperger is a major dissapointment!!
    I have written him 3 times just to ask a question and NEVER heard anything back! Also the same with GOVENOR Kemp!! We have to get these Traitors OUT OF OFFICE!! WE need good honest people running against them! They have done NOTHING to clear or even help clear up disrepresencies in the Procedures , Count, and sending people home then Counting again!!! These have been horrible for our State . Everyone I know has completely lost faith in the System and our Counties and State. I have been told they are bussing illegals all over the places in our STATE where they need Democrat votes! I once again am appalled! Thank you for your article! Keep up the good work! Sincerely, Debbie Kennedy

      You have been told wrong, and should probably start trying to think for yourself instead of listening to whatever ridiculous conspiracy theory is the flavor of the day on your Facebook groups or parler.

      Criminals rarely respond to inquiries from the public regarding their criminal acts.

    My unanswered question on the Georgia election: What was in the backpack?

      Ballots marked for Trump.

  103. Pat

    I find it simply amazing that only Democrats work on elections, that Republicans do not support the election process.

    1. SidA

      They weren’t allowed on site close enough to realize what was actually going on.

    2. Donald G Tucker

      conservative volunteers are probably told, thanks, but we have all the help we need already.

    3. Lew

      Pat….Have you ever considered signing up as a Precinct Captain? Normally only one meeting a month. There are over 200,000 positions open nationwide. If you want to have some impact, consider this.

    4. Johnathan Galt

      Are you a legal resident of Moscow? Every election in THIS country has bipartisan observers. Often, Democrats seek to conceal what they are doing from Republican observers.

    But if they didn’t cheat, Trump would have won. Unfortunately, America is hopelessly corrupt so nothing will happen.

    1. Don

      Lmao. Yeah, because it was just one side that cheated, and oddly only in the states that trump lost. Are you really this much of a sheep?

      1. Lew

        Don…..why is there so much resistance to an audit and a recount? What is the old axiom: “If you have nothing to hide….”
        One would think everyone on both sides would want to ensure the elections were valid. Have you seen the PCAP (packet capture) data showing hacking from numerous sources. BTW, in case you don’t know what PCAP data is….It is captured real time, once it is gone it cannot be “recreated” ….It is a digital footprint of the originating location of the data, the destination of the data package, time, etc. Cannot be created or changed. If not captured at the time of transmission, it is gone.

        If you can find fraud in states carried by DJT, please make it public. We want to stamp out all fraud.

  106. Concerned American

    These people think We, The People are stupid! We ALL know election fraud took place! As soon as AZ & GA are completed we should have another election with paper ballots ONLY to see who the REAL PRESIDENT IS! Continue in each state with the audits so there is PROOF of what each of these people did to OUR country! Then every criminal that participated should be punished to the fullest extent of the law!!!

    1. Don

      You mean like the ones that stormed the capitol to try and overthrow an election by treason? It truly amazes me how unbelievably ignorant the overwhelming majority of republicans are…

      1. Lew

        Don….Really? Stormed? I wonder who “created” the video showing the capitol police “ushering” these “treasonists” into the capitol building?

  107. clayusmcret

    24% missing is a heck of a lot more than “a few”.

  108. Steve

    “Missing”?? No, they aren’t missing – they were never there. When boxes of fraudulent ballots are dropped off at 3AM, there’s no time to worry about things like chains of custody. Keep your eyes on the Maricopa County, AZ audit, and the others that follow. I give the Biden “administration” until the fall, or the end of the year at the latest, to either peacefully step down in light of all the evidence, or to have to be arrested and put on trial. It really could come down to that.

    1. Don

      Lmao, all the evidence. What evidence? Some forms are missing? How about the deep southern states that were polling more than 10% higher for democrats before the election and mysteriously went wave of blue on November 3rd? Oh but that’s right, it’s only possible for the Dems to have cheated. Typical republicans, project and deflect to try and cover your own BS.

      1. Lew

        Joe….Or, should I call you “Chang”? Is that you comrade?

    2. Johnathan Galt

      That depends on how much of our country is still un-corrupted. Historically, coups DO succeed. When they do, no LEGAL action to overturn their stolen victory will succeed.

    Does anybody honestly think that Joe Biden won this election? Every contested state had Trump ahead until about 3:00 a.m. the morning after the election, and then Joe Biden suddenly gained enough votes to “beat” Trump. The change of custody for these Fulton County ballots are not missing, they were never there in the first place. Wake up, people.

    1. Kym DeAngelo-Larsen

      I don’t need ballots to tell me who won
      None of us needed that proof
