Following a signature match audit for absentee ballots in Cobb County, Georgia will conduct a statewide audit. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced the decision on Monday.
According to the secretary of state’s office, the audit will review “specific allegations” relating to inadequate signature matching on absentee ballot applications ahead of June’s primary elections. That audit will compare a sample of absentee ballot envelopes to signatures on file.
As of the first day of early voting for the runoff election, Georgians haven’t received an updated voter registration list.
The Republican Party of Georgia issued a press release posing seven questions about the list pertaining to the upcoming runoff election.
The Trump Campaign alleged that between 38,000 and over 45,000 illegal absentee ballot votes were cast in Georgia. According to their estimations, the campaign requested that Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger do a complete audit on the absentee ballot envelope signatures.
The letter marked the campaign’s fifth petition filed to Raffensperger.
