Georgia election data shows that more than 30,000 votes for Trump were deleted.

Even after multiple recounts, there have been no fraudulent activities identified in Georgia.

Even after multiple recounts, there have been no fraudulent activities identified in Georgia. Democratic candidate Joe Biden won the 2020 U.S. Presidential elections. Biden’s administration will take office after Inauguration Day, which will be on January 20, 2021.

Since election day, President Donald Trump and his aides have repeatedly claimed widespread voter fraud, making accusations about the voting process, claiming that several votes were deleted or transferred from Trump to Biden. As a result, multiple recounts were requested by the campaign in Georgia.

Nevertheless, a hand count, a machine recount, and a signature audit have confirmed that the Democrats won in the November 2020 presidential election. A signature match audit in Cobb County found no fraudulent absentee ballots and indicated that the Cobb County Elections Department had a 99.99 percent accuracy rate in performing correct signature verification procedures. The audit found issues with only two of the ballots: one ballot was mistakenly signed by the voter's spouse; another ballot only had a signature on the front of the envelope. In both cases, the identified voters had filled out the ballots themselves.

Dominion voting systems have also denied all the claims of votes being transferred or deleted in the counties. Only three counties in Georgia faced issues with the Dominion Voting Systems that were used in the elections. In one county, a problem with the Dominion software delayed officials’ reporting of the vote tallies, but this did not affect the actual vote count. In two other counties, a separate company’s software slowed poll workers’ ability to check-in voters. But the issues were not related to the software.

On January 2, 2021, in an hour-long phone call to Brad Raffensperger, the Secretary of State of Georgia, Trump falsely claimed that he had won the election, that 30,000 ballots were dropped mysteriously into the rolls, and that officials had shredded ballots. Trump pressured Raffensperger to overturn the election results, but Raffensperger refused. Raffensperger, in an interview with ABC News, rejected all the claims made by Trump.
