In the spring, Democrat activists filed a lawsuit claiming the machines were hackable. In the course of the lawsuit, they insisted that a large number of the machines be sequestered in federal court as evidence. Unlike their claims, the Secretary of State's office does not actually involve itself with voting machines and day to day election operations. Those are all handled at the county level by county officials in Cobb County, Georgia.
As a result of the lawsuit, 550 machines were sequestered and kept out of Election Day in Cobb County.
In Fulton and DeKalb Counties, both Democrat strongholds, the lawsuit kept 700 machines out of polling locations in Fulton County and 585 out of DeKalb County. Additional machines were down for maintenance in those areas and, again, that is on the counties, not the Secretary of State, and both of those counties are controlled by Democrats.
The voting irregularities story is a manufactured story that the media willingly bought and then blamed Republicans. It is so telling that the local media in Georgia ignored these stories and the national media ran with them.
