According to Breitbart, President Donald Trump’s contention about Georgia voting rules making it nearly impossible to verify signatures on absentee ballots is correct, making the Associated Press and state officials wrong in disputing Trump’s allegations.
“The Consent Decree signed by the Georgia Secretary of State, with the approval of Governor @BrianKempGA, at the urging of @staceyabrams, makes it impossible to check & match signatures on ballots and envelopes, etc. They knew they were going to cheat. Must expose real signatures!” Trump tweeted, and was promptly labeled “disputed” by the AP.
The consent decree says that three election officials have to vote on a mismatched signature and write all of their names on the ballot envelope if they agree it is mismatched, and then the cure process in a 2019 law can start.
To cure the ballot, officials mail a provisional ballot to the person, and they have to provide ID and an affadavit before the deadline in order for it to count.
Given the accusations by failed 2018 gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams that rejecting ballots was racist along with the complicated process, it makes it very unlikely that anyone would want their name appearing on an envelope showing they rejected the signature.
