Georgia Election Officials Say There Are Still 8,410 Military And Overseas Ballots


It’s not finished yet in Georgia.

Biden just took a thin lead in Georgia but that could change soon!

Georgia election officials announced that there are still 8,410 military and overseas ballots that still need to be counted.

Some of the military ballots have not arrived in Georgia yet and election officials say they have until 5 pm to be legally counted.

Trump recently took to Twitter and said: “Where are the missing military ballots in Georgia? What happened to them?”.

Fox News covered the election update in Georgia involving military ballots and released these details:

Thousands of military ballots have yet to be counted in Georgia, which some say could give a boost to President Trump’s numbers in the state, even as Democratic nominee Joe Biden pulls slightly ahead in the race to claim the state’s 16 electoral votes.

Biden early Friday was leading in the state with 2,449,371 votes, or 49.39% of the ballots cast, while the president had 2,448,454 votes, or 49.37% of the ballots cast.

But there are thousands of military, overseas and provisional ballots that will soon be added to the vote tally.

Military and overseas ballots have a later deadline than other absentee ballots and were required in Georgia to be postmarked by Nov. 3. Those ballots will be counted, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, if they are received at the county election offices by Friday, Nov. 6, at 5 p.m. ET.

WSAV News added to the story too:

With such a slim margin in the presidential race in Georgia, the secretary of state says his office is preparing for the next steps.

“Right now, Georgia remains too close to call,” Secretary Brad Raffensperger said Friday.

Of the five million votes cast in the state, Raffensperger says just a few thousand will separate President Donald Trump and Joe Biden. As of 3 p.m. Friday, that number is 1,585.

“With a margin that small, there will be a recount in Georgia,” he said.

In the Peach State, a candidate can request a recount if the margin is 0.5% or less between two candidates.

Meanwhile, a 5 p.m. deadline looms in Georgia for provisional ballots along with overseas and military ballots. In Chatham County, there was a potential for voters to return 337 requested military overseas ballots, for voters to cure more than 155 rejected absentee ballots and for the Board of Registrars to validate 392 provisional ballots.

Gabriel Sterling, Georgia’s voting system implementation manager, said with two hours until that deadline, there are 8,410 potential overseas and military ballots that could be received statewide.

With a possible 8,410 military votes expected in Georgia Trump could easily take back Georgia the only question is where are they?

If the ballots don’t make it by 5 pm they will not be counted according to Georgia election officials.
