Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Monday announced a signature-matching audit in one of the state’s most populated counties in what Raffensperger suggested was an effort to “restore confidence” in the elections and the Constitution.
Raffensperger said they will work with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) to review voter signatures on absentee ballot envelopes in Cobb County following weeks of lawsuits and pressure from the Trump campaign and prominent Republicans who insist ballots were not properly checked to see if the signatures matched that of the voters.
He said the audit will take about two weeks “but will not change the outcome of the November elections.”
“Our office will be partnering with @GBI_GA to conduct a signature match audit in Cobb County following specific reports that the county failed to adequately conduct signature matching. This audit will take around two weeks but will not change the outcome of the November elections,” Raffensperger tweeted Monday.
