Georgia County Approves Automatic Hand Recounts

The Guardian:

A rural Georgia elections office run by Republicans who promote falsehoods about the 2020 election approved a motion on Monday to institute automatic hand recounts for all future elections.

The decision will require elections staff in Spalding county to hand-count each ballot, then compare those vote totals with totals reached by voting tabulation machines provided by the secretary of state. Hand counts slow certification of election results and are less reliable than tabulations carried out by machines….

Outside Georgia, other jurisdictions have tried to move to hand-counting since the 2020 election, including Cochise county, ArizonaNye county, Nevada; and Shasta county, California.
