Georgia’s House voted to have all ballots have watermarks that will prevent them from being counterfeited in future elections.
It’s being reported that the Georgia State House voted to add security to ballots used in their elections.
Georgia voters could see a watermark on their ballot beginning in November, a move Republican supporters said would assure citizens that their ballots are authentic.
The House on Wednesday voted 167-1 for House Bill 976, sending it to the Senate for more debate.
“It will bring more confidence from our people who vote, and it’s something we need to restore.” said Rep. Steve Tarvin, a Chickamauga Republican.
The 2020 Election in Georgia was a total mess. There is still a case outstanding related to ballots that were counted and included in the results in the election that independent observers claimed appeared to be carbon copies of each other.
This case is being held up in Georgia courts. It has gone all the way to the Supreme Court and after that court ruled that the citizens in the state did have standing and therefore did have the right to audit these ballots, the courts have prevented the citizens from doing so as they continue to slow walk this case.
Here is a tweet that was shared regarding the bill that was passed.
Yesterday, The Georgia State House voted 167-1 to pass a bill requiring ALL ballots have official watermarks on them to prevent counterfeiting This simple step would eliminate a big method of the cheating that happened in Fulton County, where multiple election workers swore they saw Fulton County count thousands upon thousands of fictitious Biden ballots in 2020… that lawsuit is still ongoing in court

Georgia has a lot of work to do to lead people to believe that they have fair courts and fair elections.
