Although election audits were conducted in Georgia, thousands of illegally counted votes were ignored, it was recently revealed, with more than 10,000 having potentially voted illegally. This number is expected to increase over the coming months.
About 35,000 votes from residents who changed their county of residence may have been excluded, thus exceeding several times the 12,670 that prevented then-President Donald Trump from continuing in the White House, according to The Federalist on July 9.
This new evidence was revealed by Data Productions Inc. president and expert on voter data analysis and residency issues, Mark Davis, who obtained it from the National Change of Address (NCOA) database.
The NCOA identifies Georgia residents who had confirmed moves with the U.S. Postal Service.
Using this data and data available from the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office, Davis was able to determine the number of possible illegal votes on this basis alone.
Under Georgia law, those who at the time of voting have resided for more than 30 days in the county to which they have moved and vote in the county of the previous residence would invalidate their vote.
In principle, this evidence would vindicate the authenticity of the claims of former President Trump and his legal team in challenging the Georgia election results.
“Under Georgia law, a judge can order an election be redone if he or she sees there were enough illegal, irregular, or improperly rejected votes to cast the results of the election in doubt, or if they see evidence of ‘systemic irregularities,'” Davis said, according to The Federalist.
It is shocking to Davis that the media, the courts, and the Secretary of State’s Office had failed to enforce laws regulating the effect of voters’ county change on elections.
“In fact, I heard members of the Secretary of State’s team admit some votes were cast with residency issues, but then claimed there weren’t enough of them to cast the outcome of the election in doubt,” Davis reported.
He added, “That was not at all what I was seeing, and as far as I am aware the Secretary of State’s Office has never put an actual number on the ones they did see.”
Davis also related, “In May I received an updated voter database from the Secretary of State’s office, and I imported the data and compared voter’s addresses to the NCOA information I processed in November.”
Other consequences that could follow from Davis’ discovery include preventing irregularities such as these from harming Americans’ voting rights.
“Determining if the state’s electors were rightfully or wrongfully certified is something that all voters deserve to know,” wrote author Kyle Becker.
Indeed, Georgia passed the Republican-sponsored Election Integrity Act of 2021. It is a far-reaching election bill, which Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed on March 25.
“I was proud to sign S.B. 202 to ensure elections in Georgia are secure, fair, and accessible. I appreciate the hard work of members of the General Assembly to make it easy to vote and hard to cheat,,” Kemp announced in a tweet.
The new law seeks to eliminate fraud, ensure the integrity of elections by enforcing compliance statewide, restricting drop boxes, expanding in-person voting, and boosting voter ID, among other reforms.
It also requires a Georgia driver’s license or state-issued or state-approved ID to vote absentee by mail.
