Georgia County Elections Director Fired After Audit Found Uncounted Votes


The elections board of Floyd County, Georgia, on Thursday voted to terminate its executive director after an audit found ballots left uncounted prior to the county’s initial certification.

FOX 5 reports: The board met for little more than an hour Thursday afternoon in a special meeting, which resulted in termination. Officials cited at least two reprimands that Brady received in the past six months as the reason for his firing. […] Election officials discovered around 2,600 votes that were not counted in the county’s total earlier this week during the statewide audit. Election workers ultimately had to recount more than 8,000 ballots to get to the bottom of the problem.

“It really is a matter of human error not of some big fraud or conspiracy and people make mistakes, but, unfortunately, I think this one falls at the feet of our elections director who I’ve been critical of this entire elections cycle,” Rome City Commissioner Wendy Davis said in a statement.

Davis added: “There weren’t the right double and triple checks right before certification to realize we hadn’t counted as many numbers as the people that early voted.”

Brady’s firing comes after the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office requested that he step down from his position. – READ MORE
