AFulton County, Georgia, election official, has acknowledged that chain-of-custody documents for absentee ballots deposited into drop boxes for the 2020 election are "missing" or "misplaced."
"We noticed that a few forms are missing," Mariska Bodison, the board secretary of Fulton County Registration & Elections, last week told The Georgia Star News. She also said procedural paperwork "may have been misplaced."
Bodison's comment appears to mark the first time an election official at either the state or county level in a battleground state has admitted an error in election procedure for the 2020 election.
The Star analyzed transfer forms of ballots deposited in drop boxes in the county during the 2020 election. Through open records requests, the newspaper found 385 out of an estimated 1,565 transfer forms were missing.
