Wouldn't it be funny if Georgia's hand recount shows that the black box voting machines cheated

FOR trump?

Am I to take it that Republicans now want to do away with electronic voting machines? (see Sidney Powell).

If such a result comes about because of all this sore loserism then what a great turn of events that would be!

1. This is the first thing I thought of. What do they do if it turns up 100,000 more votes for Biden?

I guess they have to hand recount every race in the state.

I havent trusted GAs dirty machines since Cleland.

2. Wouldn't Kemp have known about black box cheating when he ordered the hand recount?

He uses to be SOS so he must have known about black box cheating. I doubt he’d want to height it with a hand recount.

3. These machines are not true black box type

Voters use a touch screen for in person voting to produce a paper ballot with QR code that is then read by a scanner. The paper ballot also has text of the voter's choices for review. During the hand recount, the text will be read, not the QR code.

11. Yes, all in person voting uses these machines

However, absentee ballots are marked by hand and then counted by batch scanners provided by the same company.

8. Well, that's a good thing. Exactly the type of system every state should employ.

Now, it could be that the tabulations are rigged after the ballots are scanned, but that would risk a felony if subsequent hand counts don't match the tabulations.

I'm confident that Georgia's hand recount will closely match the machine tabulations. And trumpians everywhere will be DEFLATED.

4. And it blew the lid off of the electioneering Republicans have been doing and getting away with...

For decades to keep to tilt the numbers in their favor to win control of all branches of government, including ill-gotten judicial picks.

10. Georgia was ordered to stop using black box

machines for the 2020 election. They use scanners to count paper ballots. There is a paper trail.
