(PatriotHeadline.com)- As Georgia undergoes a state-wide recount, yet another batch of previously uncounted ballots has been recovered…and once again, a majority of the ballots cast were for President Donald Trump. The haul of 2,755 ballots narrows Joe Biden’s lead over the president to less than 13,000 – a lead that keeps shrinking as ballots are uncovered.
Gabriel Sterling, the voting system manager for Georgia, announced that Fayette County election workers didn’t upload the votes stored on a memory card and obtained from their Dominion voting machines.
“They didn’t do the reconciliation process properly,” Sterling explained.
Out of the 2,755 votes, President Donald Trump received 1,577, and Joe Biden received 1,128. Libertarian candidate Jo Jorgensen received 43 votes.
It’s the second time within 24 hours that a batch of ballots from a Georgia county that was previously uncounted was discovered. And this isn’t even a full audit of the votes.
The count taking place in Georgia is only a hand recount of ballots and does not include signature verification or an audit of the ballots. It’s a move that prompted President Donald Trump’s legal team to label the recount a “sham.”
The GA Recount is a SHAM.
Just spoke with nonpartisan county head of elections.
They are ONLY counting votes cast, not checking for validation & not checking signatures. Also there are many “perfect bubbles” on absentee ballot votes.
GA state officials are lying to citizens.

Sterling, incorrectly describing the recount as an audit, said that “the reason you do an audit is to find this kind of thing.”
WATCH: “This is why you do the audits,” said @GabrielSterling with the @GaSecofState‘s Office after it was discovered that Floyd County elections officials failed to include about 2,500 votes in their results. @FOX5Atlanta #gapol pic.twitter.com/rEP0AX3Z34

Starling also added that the elections director for Floyd County, who oversaw a ballot counting in the county where votes were not uploaded and counted, should resign.
The recount in Georgia must be complete by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday night, though if President Donald Trump’s lawyers have anything to do with it, there could be yet another recount taking place in the state that verifies all the votes cast were legal.
Signatures on absentee ballots have not been audited in Georgia, which is a major point of contention for the Trump campaign.
