Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced on Facebook that “Fulton County has discovered an issue involving reporting from their work on Friday.” Officials do not yet know which way they would change the count. “Officials are at State Farm Arena to rescan their work from Friday.”

Considering that Fulton has a positive Biden margin of +40.9 vs 2016, it appears the error is in Biden’s favor and will be corrected soon. Such a large increase in margin vs. 2016 does not match comparable counties, or what we would expect if we extrapolate from Georgia’s 2020 exit polls.
