Another election audit in Georgia might be in the works as Republicans search for signs of fraud. This time a judge has unsealed more than 145,000 absentee ballots for review.
It's unclear the time or place that said ballots will be reviewed, but this is likely to take place in or around Fulton County, as that's where the ballots originated.
Those who audit will scan to ensure the ballots are legitimate, per report on AJC:

Georgia is headed for another review of its presidential election results after a judge agreed to unseal more than 145,000 Fulton County absentee ballots Friday.
The details and timing of the review must still be determined. But the plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the county want to scan and examine the ballots to determine whether they are legitimate.
At a hearing Friday, Henry County Superior Court Judge Brian Amero made clear the ballots must remain in the custody of Fulton election officials. That could prevent the kind of allegations of mishandling ballots and improper procedures that have dogged an audit of ballots in Arizona in recent weeks.

The latest Georgia review cannot change the election results, which were certified months ago and have already been confirmed by multiple recounts. But the plaintiffs say an examination of ballots would get to the bottom of what they see as suspicious activity by election officials at State Farm Arena last November.
Former Sen. Kelly Loeffler welcomed the review in a statement issued Friday.
“Voter confidence in our election system is the bedrock of our republic,” said Loeffler, now chair of voter registration group Greater Georgia Action. “Unfortunately, inconsistencies in Fulton County’s November 2020 absentee ballots cast serious doubt on voters’ faith in our elections.”
Fulton County Commission Chairman Robb Pitts blasted the review in his own statement.
“It is outrageous that Fulton County continues to be a target of those who cannot accept the results from last year’s election,” Pitts said. “The votes have been counted multiple times, including a hand recount, and no evidence of fraud has been found.
Democrats continue to push back against election audits, sparking conversations suggesting they are scared of the results.
Americans deserve an audit and the transparent results, no matter what the outcome is.
