May 15, 2017
A special election will be held on June 20, 2017, to determine the member of the United States House of Representatives for Georgia’s 6th congressional district. Republican Incumbent Tom Price resigned from the seat following his appointment and confirmation as the United States Secretary of Health and Human Services in the Trump Administration.
A primary election occurred on April 18, 2017.
No candidate reached a majority of the vote on April 18, leading to a runoff election on June 20, 2017. The candidates in the runoff will be Republican candidate Karen Handel and Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff.
What Really Happened With April 18 Election Night Reporting?
On Election Night April 18th, reporting was delayed for several hours in Fulton County and after problems were corrected just before midnight there was a significant shift in vote counts resulting in a runoff. This generated national skepticism again concerning whether or Georgia’s unverifiable voting systems can be trusted. What really happened? Was there a machine malfunction? human error? vote rigging? security flaws? Why did people in Roswell and Johns Creek precincts have to vote two separate times using different cards and different machines on the same day? Why didn’t the voting system catch any human errors? What are the implications for the June 20 runoff? And for future elections?
We will look for the answers at our May 23rd Pickens County GA Tea Party meeting, when
Garland Favorito, founder of VoterGa, and a career IT professional will walk through exactly what happened that night and address all of your questions. His presentation is based on the newly released study that defines the root causes of the election reporting problems. https://voterga.files.wordpress.com/2017/05/prelliminary-6th-district-election-error-root-cause-analysis.pdf .
