Including today’s tweet, that’s 17 times, President Repetitive repeated lies, in varying degrees, regarding the signature verification process in Georgia.

November 15th, 2020, AP News fact-checked the following claim: President Donald Trump has wrongly claimed that Georgia election officials are unable to verify signatures on absentee ballot envelopes because of a legal settlement known as a consent decree.

The fact-check debunked the claim posted in his tweet from Saturday, November, 14th, 2020.

From the fact-check:

There is nothing in the consent decree that prevents Georgia election clerks from scrutinizing signatures. The legal settlement signed in March addresses accusations about a lack of statewide standards for judging signatures on absentee ballot envelopes.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, said that not only is it entirely possible to match signatures, but that the state requires it.

When a voter requests an absentee ballot on a paper application, he or she must sign it. Election officials compare that signature to the signature in voter registration files before a ballot is sent to the voter, Raffensperger said.
When those ballots are returned, the required signature on the outer envelope is compared to signatures in the voter registration system.

AP News. 11/15/2020.

On November 19th, 2020, AJC explained that; That verification process reviewed signatures on absentee ballot envelopes when they were received at county election offices. Then ballots are separated from envelopes to protect the secret ballot, leaving no way to link voters to the candidates they chose. The right to cast a ballot in secret is guaranteed by the state Constitution.

From the article on how the two-step verification process worked for the 2020 election.

Election workers verify signatures on absentee ballot envelopes and absentee ballot applications by comparing them to the signatures that voters used when they registered. Those original signatures are stored in county election computers, either from when they signed up to vote at driver’s license offices or from paper registration forms.

The signature matching process must be open to public view under Georgia law.

AJC. 12/19/2020.

For those residents that apply for an application for an absentee ballot online, there is no signature verification process prior to them receiving their ballot, however, the Georgia resident must have a valid drivers license linked to their voter registration in order to use the online system.

One more time for the cheap seats…

This probably will not be the last time, we hear about Georgia’s signature match process and how it’s not fair it wasn’t done again.

It. Cannot. Be. Done. Again.

In other Georgia news, the Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said in a press conference this morning that after 3 counts of the Georgia Presidential race, the “results remain unchanged.” He added that the Secretary of States Office would be re-certifying the states election results.

He goes onto say that all this talk of stolen elections is hurting the state. At the 3:36 mark he says; I know there are people who are convinced the election was fraught with problems, but the evidence, the actual evidence, the facts, tell us a different story.
