A man coming out of a bar in Garden City, directly to the west of Savannah, discovered the voting equipment off the side of the road in a grassy area. Several photos of the discarded voting machine were uploaded onto social media, which sparked outrage and accusations of election fraud. The post and the photos that accompany it have been shared over 4,000 times.
The photos show that the machine, which resembles a briefcase, had “Fulton County” on its label. That county is home to the state capital of Atlanta, and leans heavily Democratic.
Jeff Davis, the man who discovered the voting equipment described the discovery:
“I was on a phone call out here and looked over. What I thought was a solar panel was actually a briefcase with a voting machine. The local police was here and asked how we found it and what I saw. Then from there, the Georgia Bureau of Investigations arrived, and they asked the same type of questions.”
The incident is being investigated by the Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI), with support from the Garden City Police Department. According to the GBI, their officers secured the machine and documented it. A report of the incident was also sent to the Secretary of State's Office.
It is unclear at this time how the old voting machine ended up dumped on the side of the road.
Listen to this episode of the Health Ranger Report, a podcast by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, as he pleads with the American public to remain hopeful and to keep the faith. If the rule of law is upheld in the country's judiciary system, then there is no doubt that President Donald Trump will be proclaimed the winner of the election after the results in battleground states like Georgia are overturned.
The Secretary of State's Office released a statement regarding this matter. They said that the voting machine was part of a shipment of defunct voting equipment that was heading to one of several storage locations at the Port of Savannah. All of the old voting equipment was being collected before any of the new voting hardware was distributed to the counties for the general election.
They stressed that the old voting machine has not affected the election in any way. (Related: Lin Wood files lawsuit challenging Georgia's secretary of state's dark unconstitutional agreement with Hillary attorney Marc Elias.)
“Machines of this type are no longer used in Georgia,” said the office in their statement. “There is no way it could have impacted the 2020 election because it does not print ballots, and this state has switched entirely to voting on paper ballots.”
In an interview with WSAV, Chatham County Board of Elections operation manager John Leffler said the state's old voting machines were shipped out to Savannah in January of this year, and that he personally handled the process.
“All the equipment when it left here was completely stripped of any kind of information,” said Leffler, meaning that any kind of backup data in the machine, such as voter information, was fully expunged. Leffler said that he believes it is impossible for the machines to create any kind of disruption to the election in the state that they were in during the delivery process.
When asked about why the machines were kept in storage and not simply dismantled, Leffler said that normally that would have been the case. He said they should have been taken to an industrial shredder and destroyed, but there's “potential pending legislation about a lawsuit” preventing the state from doing so.
