Luke Martin, chairman of the Floyd County Republican Party, said the newly found votes had been cast in person during early voting at the Floyd County Administration Building.

When asked about the conversation with Raffensperger, Graham said Monday that he was "trying to find out how the signature stuff worked".

President Trump will be helped a bit by more than 2,600 Georgia ballots that were discovered to have not yet been tallied. 'But this doesn't appear to be a widespread issue.

Moderna's interim analysis was based on 95 infections among trial participants who received either a placebo or the vaccine. The UK, which is no longer included under EU Commission group deals, has also said it is in advanced talks with Moderna.


Raffensperger acknowledged last week that the hand tally would be a "heavy lift" for the counties.

Raffensperger told the Post he was "stunned" by the inquiries. The secretary of state has responded in social media posts of his own disputing their claims.

"Other than getting you angry, it's also very disillusioning", he said. The deadline for the state to certify election results is Friday.

Trump has insisted that he will be declared the victor of the presidential election and has said it is important to make sure that every legal vote is counted.

County election officials were instructed to complete the count by 11:59 p.m. Wednesday. What remained was mostly data entry and quality control measures before submitting results to the secretary of state, he said.

Meanwhile: "Republican leaders are increasingly alarmed about the party's ability to stave off Democratic challengers in Georgia's two Senate runoff elections - and they privately described President Trump on a recent conference call as a political burden who despite his false claims of victory was the likely loser of the 2020 election".
