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

Considering that Fulton has a positive Biden margin of +40.9 vs 2016, it appears the error is in Bidenโ€™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 Georgiaโ€™s 2020 exit polls.
