In a repeat of exactly what happened during the November 3, 2020 General Election, voters Georgia Republican stronghold precincts have been contacting authorities and media outlets complaining that Dominion Voting Systems machines are breaking down.
With ballots stacking up in one of the most important elections in recent history – and will participation rates through the roof, election and polling officials are telling voters their ballots will be stored and scanned into the tabulation machines later.
Popular Georgia radio host, John Fredricks, said voters from Republican dominant precincts have been calling his show and telling him they were unable to complete casting their ballots in the state’s twin run-off elections because Dominion Voting System machines were malfunctioning.
The voters told Fredricks that poll workers told them to place their ballots in a “box,” telling them their ballots “would be scanned later.”
Several Republican stronghold precincts in Columbia, Newton, Fulton, Troup, and Paulding Counties are affected. At the moment of this report there are no reports of machines being compromised or inoperable in any Democrat stronghold precincts.
Gabriel Sterling, Georgia’s embattled voting systems implementation manager – who has been caustically vocal about how perfect the election process has been in his state, issued a tweet stating, “Some issues in Columbia Co. There was a programming error on security keys for some locations scanners & pollworker cards. Voting continues on backup emergency ballots. Newly programmed keys&cards are being taken to locations via law enforcement.”

But there are many more locations where Dominion Voting System machines are malfunctioning or inoperable, all of them exclusively in Republican precincts.
One voter in predominantly Republican Sandy Springs in Fulton County tweeted, “Just voted in #Georgia runoff & of course in heavily @GOP precinct at HeardsFerry—Sandy Springs #Dominion scanners “are down.” This means @TheDemocrats activist now will be in charge of scanning my vote for @sendavidperdue & @KLoeffler @BrianKempGA @KLoeffler @GabrielSterling”

Many polling places in Georgia were documented as experiencing massive ballot handling and tabulation irregularities during the November 3, 2020 General Election. These documented events have led to potential challenges at the tallying of the Electoral College vote certification during a joint session of Congress tomorrow in Washington, DC.
Dominion Voting Systems machines and software are at the epicenter of vote fraud and ballot tampering allegations, as well as charges of illegal software programming to affect vote fraud in at least five states.
Today’s twin run-off elections in Georgia will determine both which party controls the US Senate and whether the United States of America will be relegated to despotic one-party rule for at least the next two years.
