Georgia: “GBI finishes signature audit in Cobb County, finds only two mismatches”


Channel 2 Action News has learned that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has finished the signature audit in Cobb County over the November election.

Earlier in the month, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said his office had investigated credible allegations that Cobb County improperly performed signature matches during the June primary, so he ordered a signature audit for the November election in that county.

Channel 2 investigative reporter Justin Gray spoke with Raffensperger late Tuesday afternoon, who said there were only two mismatched signatures among the more than 15,000 votes in the audit.

The inaccuracy came from a wife who signed her name to ballots for both her and her husband, the Secretary of State said.

“It really shows you and should give voters confidence that there’s accuracy and integrity, and security, in the absentee ballot process so we’re really grateful for GBI’s support,” Raffensperger said.

The audit found no fraudulent absentee ballots with a 99% confidence threshold, Raffensperger’s office said in a news release Tuesday.
