Despite Election Day having come and gone, the Democrat Party of Georgia has begun recruiting state residents to knock on voters’ doors and help them “cure their ballots.”
“Attention everyone in or near Georgia: We need YOUR help today! This race is not over and we need every single vote to be counted. It is all hands on deck and all eyes on Georgia!” an event description on Mobilize.org, a mobilization platform, reads.
“Join us today for a virtual training to learn how to knock doors to help voters cure their ballots. We need you in this fight with us today and tomorrow and Friday. We’ve come so far, this is how we bring it home. See you in the virtual training room and out knocking doors soon!”
A number of high-profile organizations and figures, including members of the media, have tweeted a link to the page and urged their followers to take part in the effort.
If you're in Georgia and have time to volunteer today, please consider helping voters "cure" their ballots.#VoteBidenHarrisToSaveAmerica #VOTE #Election2020 #Elections2020 #ElectionDay #ElectionNight #MSNBC2020 #waytooearly https://t.co/TzyOzLV2ZN

Their plea for people to intervene in an already concluded election provoked accusations of foul play and cheating.
Whatever you think of Tuesday’s result, the idea that you can go door-to-door to “fix” ballots the rest of the week is ridiculous. No secret ballot, no Election “Day,” no real oversight. The Third World doesn’t even tolerate this. It’s legalized fraud. Here come the Twitter cops. https://t.co/wBE0WjLMNn

Leftist scumbags like @davidlitt are literally stealing the election, advertising it on social media, and daring you to do anything about it. And the entire media is backing HIM, and not the law. https://t.co/0Z098r3cMg

Democrat operatives aren’t even hiding their plan for election theft, which includes manufacturing votes days after the election already ended. https://t.co/vuT3v3A1y5

Ballot “curing” is technically a legal process applicable in cases where a voter submits a ballot but the ballot is rejected because of fixable mistakes.
“If your ballot was rejected, your county elections office will contact you with a document to ‘cure’ or correct your ballot envelope. Contact your county registrar to get more information and find out what your options are,” Georgia’s voting guidelines state.
“One of the most common reasons an absentee ballot is rejected is because it has not been properly signed. Be sure to carefully read and follow all instructions included in your absentee ballot.”
However, the policies make no reference to a third party — let alone a third party recruited by a major political party — intervening in the process.
According to Atlanta station WXIA, they do reportedly state that after a voter with a faulty ballot is contacted by state officials, “the voter then has until three days after the date of the election to submit voter identification, along with an affidavit confirming that the ballot submitted was indeed theirs in order to ‘cure’ the ballot.”
This three-day extension has angered Republicans who believe the cut-off date for all mail-in ballots, with or without mistakes, should be Election Day.
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign has reportedly filed a lawsuit in Georgia alleging that a GOP poll watcher saw 53 late absentee ballots be “illegally added to a stock of on-time absentee ballots in Chatham County.”

The president has already claimed victory in Georgia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Michigan — four states where he’d been winning at the conclusion of Election Night but is now losing or on track to lose because of the addition (or “dump”) of last-minute ballots.
We have claimed, for Electoral Vote purposes, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (which won’t allow legal observers) the State of Georgia, and the State of North Carolina, each one of which has a BIG Trump lead. Additionally, we hereby claim the State of Michigan if, in fact,…..
