Georgia’s Floyd County fires election director after finding uncounted ballots

The Board of Elections in Georgia’s Floyd County voted Thursday to oust Chief of Elections Clerk Robert Brady after officials found thousands of uncounted ballots.

Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger blamed the problem on Floyd County election officials failing to upload votes from a memory card in a ballot-scanning machine.

Raffensperger had initially asked for Brady to step down and Floyd County officials met to discuss the decision before firing him, according to FOX 5 Atlanta.

They cited at least two previous incidents over the past six months as the reasons for his termination.

During a hand audit in the Peach State, election officials uncovered more than 2,600 ballots that were not counted before the county’s initial certification, forcing election workers to rescan more than 8,000 ballots.
