Michael McDonald, a University of Florida associate professor of political science, tracks state voter data and found that Gwinnett County tossed out 15% of absentee ballots submitted by Asian Americans, 11.4% of those submitted by African Americans and only 4% of those submitted by whites.

"It's not the fault of the voters. It's the fault of the elections officials for creating a confusing ballot," McDonald said.

They're stealing the election. It's actual fraud, as opposed to fake made up voter fraud they use to enact photo id, registration purges and other vote suppression tactics.

Oh, and guess who's in charge of voting in Georgia? The GOP candidate for governor, that's who. He just happens to be the current Secretary of State. How convenient! Conflict of interest much? How is it he hasn't been forced to resign or at least recuse himself from any official election business?

These people are corrupt, and they just laugh in your face about it.

Kemp Concern Over Georgians Exercising Their Right to Vote

Kemp’s recent decision to suspend more than 53,000 voter applications, 70 percent of which were filed by black residents, for violating the state’s “exact match” verification standard has drawn attention to his penchant for restrictive voter laws and purging of voter rolls. American Public Media reported last week that Kemp purged an estimated 107,000 voters last year simply because they didn’t vote in the prior election. He is also being sued for leaving more than 6 million Georgia voting records open to hacking

The things that are happening

The things that are happening in Georgia are just the beginning. There is no way with the demographic changing in America for the white supremacists to legally win elections. Watch for Trump to continue tampering with elections and calling into question any election lost by Republicans. I hope our ignorant and evil President is scaring enough voters that there are huge changes in Congress, governorships, and local elections next week. Trump is doing everything possible to distract voters and continue terrorizing immigrants. Trump is preparing to distribute swastikas, censor the media. take away our constitutional rights, and build concentration camps.

Georgia election officials ordered to review thousands of votes

A federal judge has blocked the Georgia secretary of state from certifying election results before Friday, as the state's governor's race remains unsettled.

Late Monday night, Judge Amy Totenberg ruled that state and local officials must conduct a "good faith review" of all provisional ballots that had been rejected because a voter's name was not found on the voter registration list.

This includes using "all available registration documentation" from voters to verify their identity, instead of solely relying on the voter registration list. The Secretary of State's office has reported that more than 21,000 provisional ballots were cast.

Totenberg has ordered the state to establish a hotline for voters to determine whether their provisional ballots were counted -- and if not, the reason why.
