Trump's campaign is challenging Georgia's election integrity.
One reason is how signatures with absentee ballots are verified.
"Georgia won’t let us look at the all-important signature match. Without that the recount is MEANINGLESS. Open up unconstitutional Georgia Consent Decree, NOW!" Trump said Monday in a tweet that has since been flagged by Twitter as a "disputed" claim about election fraud.
What this settlement did was establish that starting on the second Friday before an election, officials must notify any voter whose absentee ballot is going to be rejected by close of business the day after the determination to reject the ballot was made.
Ahead of the second Friday before an election, officials can take up to three business days to notify the voter that his/her ballot was rejected. Deficient absentee ballots must be cured by 5 p.m. the Friday following the election in order to be counted.
The settlement also required Raffensperger to enforce a rule on county election officials that if an election worker believes an absentee ballot should be rejected because of a signature mismatch, that worker must seek input from two other colleagues before rejecting the ballot.
The ballot will only be rejected if two of the three election workers think the signature on the ballot envelope does not match the voter's signatures on file.
"So there's no way to tie the actual ballot back to that original signature anymore because Georgia law does not allow for that," he said.
Under state law, the envelopes with the signatures and voters' original absentee ballot applications are kept on file for two years, and while litigation could be a course of action, the state's current audit cannot.
