The audit happening in Georgia right now is uncovering a lot of mishaps.
A close audit of the 2020 election in Georgia shows that over 3,000 ballots in two counties were not counted.
Audits in Fayette county revealed that 2,755 ballots were not counted while Walton county had 284 ballots that were not counted.
Fayette and Walton are predominately Republican-dominated counties so this audit totally favored Trump.
After the discovery officials tallied up the uncounted votes and announced Biden’s lead in Georgia was cut to under 13,000.

Fox News covered the story and had this to add:
More than 3,000 uncounted ballots turned up in Georgia as the state is conducting an audit of the 2020 presidential election.
As the hand-tallying continues, officials in Fayette County unearthed 2,755 ballots that had not been included in the original count.
“There was an issue where we noticed there were more people on the absentee ballot filed for voting in person in Fayette County than was in the actual reporting,” Georgia election official Gabriel Sterling said, according to Fox 5 Atlanta. “It was discovered today for certain. Because of the audit, we found this.”
Sterling said the problem was the result of several individuals not following the proper procedures.
An additional 284 ballots were found in Walton County. The local Board of Elections chair, Lori Wood, told the Walton Tribune the problem was due to votes being previously uploaded from only one of the two ballot scanners in a precinct.
Our monitors tell us that Walton County election officials have found a memory card that was apparently not uploaded. The number of uncounted votes is not as large as in Floyd or Fayette but the President will pick up votes.

WMAZ covered more details about who the uncounted votes are going towards:
The breakdown in the votes provided a net gain of about 400 for President Trump, with 1,577 going to him and 1,128 going to Joe Biden (plus a few dozen for Libertarian candidate Jo Jorgensen and write-in candidates).
This situation differed from one reported last night in Floyd County, Sterling explained, because in Floyd County the ballots were literally sitting in a box off to the side and no one ever knew they were there, until the audit.
In this instance, the votes had been scanned and recorded, but left on a memory card that was not uploaded into Fayette County’s total.
Through the hand-count audit process, they were able to count the exact number of ballots submitted in Fayette County and realize that, indeed, there were 2,700 more votes in Fayette that had not been reported into the total.
He added there may be a missing memory card in Walton County, with about 244 votes on it, that they’re working to confirm as well.
Democrats have tried to proclaim that Trump is creating conspiracies of voter fraud but in reality mishaps and voter fraud continues to show up in multiple swing states.
