January 6 Comprehensive report: On January 5th local time, Georgia held a runoff election for two U.S. senators, and the counting process has been launched.
U.S. President Trump tweeted that the voting machine in the Republican ticket warehouse was broken down, which was refuted by Georgia officials monitoring the election.
Even though as many as 3.1 million votes have been voted early, polling stations in some counties in Georgia still voted in person on the 5th.
Because the two senators, the Democratic and Republicans, have equal support, and mail-in ballots are more than other ways to vote, it may take days or even weeks to determine who will win in the end.
Because Georgia’s “goal runoff” will not only determine which party holds the Senate majority, but also affects the future full power of Democratic presidential-elect Biden, which triggers fierce competition between the two parties in the United States.
On the afternoon of the 5th local time, Trump tweeted: “The report said that the computers of Dominion Company in Georgia’s 12th congressional district could not work.
In some Republican ballot districts, the ballots were frozen for more than an hour, and the votes were left in the lock box, hoping that they could count them.”
Trump’s tweet has been retweeted more than 45,000 times.
In response, state secretary Raffensberg said in his office that although there were some problems in the notification, they did not stop voting operations and solved the problem before 10 o’clock.
“There were some procedural issues with security keys earlier, but they were quickly resolved,” said Stirling, the state’s chief of election.
