ATLANTA (WRDW/WAGT) – State election officials are investigating Coffee County’s handling of the recount of votes from last month’s presidential race.
The recount results were due on the night of Dec. 2. But on the next day, Coffee County officials were still working with the Secretary of State’s Office and Dominion Voting Systems to resolve a discrepancy of 50 votes.
On Dec. 4, the county was the only one that had not completed its upload of results. Coffee County’s Board of Elections said it was not going to certify the recount, according to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office.
The county’s elections director, Misty Martin, told state officials an earlier hand-recount audit showed totals were off by one vote from the original count. But the later machine recount showed a discrepancy of 51 votes.
