Brad Raffensperger, the Georgia Secretary of State, announced earlier this week an audit of signature matching for ballots in Cobb County after claims of voter fraud.

He added there had been no evidence of fraud in the signature matching system, however.

“As a conservative Constitutional Republican, I believe the best place to land is when judgments are made based on the Constitution,” Raffensperger said. “My goal is to make our elections accurate and secured, and believed by the voters.”

Raffensperger’s office will partner with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to conduct the signature match audit in Cobb County after specific reports that Cobb County failed to “adequately conduct signature matching.”

“This audit will take around two weeks but will not change the outcome of the November elections,” he tweeted.
