Around 12:30 p.m. ET on Friday, the President suggested that something nefarious was going on in Georgia, where Biden led about 1,500 votes by Friday afternoon. The implication in Trump’s tweet was that “missing” military votes could be a contributing factor to Biden’s leadership in the state.
The first event: It is a mistake to assume that there are missing military votes. While military votes have been issued but have not yet been tally counted, there is no evidence that they have been “missing”;. Or that anything out of the ordinary happened to them. It is likely that they are in the process of being transferred back to Georgia from abroad, as a normal procedure.
“That doesn’t mean 8,410 votes were counted,” Sterling said. “It will be greater than 0 and less than 8,410.”
It’s worth noting that just because someone requested a ballot doesn’t mean they sent it and resubmitted it. The military ballots function like the ballot papers for all other US citizens abroad. National troops usually not stationed in their homeland also qualify.
