Inquiry Shows 1,000 Georgians May Have Voted Twice, But No Conspiracy
Atlanta Attorney Jake Evans was cited in an article published by the The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on an investigation into cases of double voting during Georgia's June 9 primary. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger recently released preliminary information showing that 1,042 people voted twice during the primary, which is illegal, and announced an inquiry into the matter. However, there does not appear to be any indication of a widespread effort to encourage double-voting or to destabilize the election. Mr. Evans explained why it can be difficult to prove fraud in cases of double-voting.
"Some of these people I’ve seen are older, and they legitimately just inadvertently forgot they had voted. And then there are situations where there's fraud, and they deliberately tried to cast two ballots," he said. "From a fraud perspective, there's always a way to explain it away and try to create an excuse."
