In November, when it looked like President Trump was going to win the state of Georgia, the counting of ballots was shut down over an alleged “water main break” in the State Farm Arena in Atlanta. Poll workers were told to go home, while some election workers stayed behind. A video shows the workers leaving, as the election workers who stayed behind began pulling black suitcases out from under tables and running what appeared to be ballots through multiple tabulator machines.
President Trump lost the state of GA by a little over 11K votes.
Georgia’s November election was and continues to be, one of the most hotly contested states in America.
Today, Georgia held a runoff election for two US Senate seats that will determine which party will take control of the US Senate.
So far, it appears as though we are about to see a repeat of what many believe was a corrupt November election, as election workers in the Democrat majority Chatam County have gone home for the night with approximately 3,000 ballots left to count.
Earlier today, it was announced that voting hours in Chatam County would be extended at 2 polling places, citing “technical issues,” the details of which are not known.

According to Steven Moody of WJCL, election workers in Chatam County were told to leave the board of elections building where the ballots were being counted and to come back at 8 am tomorrow.
Conservative author and radio host Jonathan Gilliam tweeted: Watching the #georgiaelectionresults. It’s 10 pm the Republican candidates are in the lead and once again there are thousands of uncounted mail-in ballots!!! I won’t be surprised if all of a sudden a middle of the night landslide happens for the democrats.

Conservative Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk tweeted about how they’ve stopped counting ballots for the night in Chatam County, saying, “They’re doing this again!” Kirk asks a very good question…”Where are the “Republican” leaders?”
Georgia just stopped counting votes for the night in Chatham County.
They're doing this again. You can't make this up.
Where are the "Republican" leaders?

Trump campaign advisor Mercedes Schlapp explains that this is why she “can’t sleep,” asking why they can’t count through the night?
This is why I can’t sleep. I don’t understand why they just can’t count through the night. https://t.co/p7CUFZ0w6O

President Trump tweeted about the big “voter dump” against Republicans in the GA Senate elections just like in the presidential election:
“Looks like they are setting up a big “voter dump” against the Republican candidates. Waiting to see how many votes they need?”

The anti-Trump Gabriel Sterling responded to the news of Chatam County stopping the vote, saying they didn’t have any votes left to count in the building.
Why? Why weren’t all of the ballots received by mail today brought to the counting facility? Why do we always have to deal with these last-minute, late-night shenanigans?
Chatham County didn’t just stop. They completed the counting of everything they have in. That includes Election Day, Advanced, & all of the absentees they had in. The last left will be the absentee by mail that came in today. #gapol
