Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger confirmed that at least 1,000 Georgians voted twice in the state’s June 9 primary, having used absentee ballots to vote remotely and then voted again in person on election day.
Raffensperger promises tough consequences for those caught violating federal law.
Citing a massive surge in absentee ballot requests due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Raffensperger explained that his office has noted at least 1,000 possible fraudulent votes cast by individuals who first sent their absentee ballot and then attempted to vote in person on election day.
Raffensperger explained that their usually a small risk of fraud, but it skyrocketed this year due to the pandemic creating the perfect opportunity for the system to be abused. It is unclear if the fraudulent votes were able to sway any of the states contests at this time.
“A double voter knows exactly what they’re doing, diluting the votes of each and every voter that follows the law,” Raffensperger said during a press conference. “Those that make the choice to game the system are breaking the law. And as secretary of state, I will not tolerate it.”

A federal appeals court on Sunday temporarily halted a six-day extension for counting absentee ballots in Wisconsin’s presidential election, a momentary victory for Republicans and President Donald Trump in the key presidential battleground state.
As it stands, ballots will now be due by 8 p.m. on Election Day. A lower court judge had sided with Democrats and their allies to extend the deadline until Nov. 9. Democrats sought more time as a way to help deal with an expected historic high number of absentee ballots.
The Democratic National Committee, the state Democratic Party and allied groups including the League of Women Voters sued to extend the deadline for counting absentee ballots after the April presidential primary saw long lines, fewer polling places, a shortage of workers and thousands of ballots mailed days after the election.
Democrats are stealing the 2020 election.
