VoterGA: 2020 ballot images deleted, missing


VoterGA VoterGA announced today their dropbox video survey team determined that 102 Georgia counties were unable to produce dropbox surveillance videos from the November 2020 election. The team obtained admissions from 72 counties that all of the videos intended to monitor drop boxes for ballot trafficking were destroyed. VoterGA volunteers made the determinations by submitting Open Records Requests (ORR) for the videos from each county. Thus, video monitoring is missing for 181,507 cast ballots.

At a November 9, 2021 press conference, VoterGA announced that their ballot image analysis team determined at least 70 Georgia counties were unable to produce all the original ballot images from the November 2020 election. Digital ballot images are created automatically by the Dominion voting system for results tabulation. The team obtained admissions from 56 counties that most or all of their ballot images were unavailable. A total of 1.7 million images were destroyed.

According to state and federal law, all elections records must be retained. In fact, federal law requires a 22- month retention period for election records while state law requires a 24-month retention period for election documents that are formerly considered to include videos or electronic digital files. [USC 52 20701, O.C.G.A. 21-2-73].

Federal law provides for a two-year retention period on election information. Whoever deleted it committed crimes.
