The Senate runoff elections are coming up in Georgia and pretty much everyone expects the Democrats to be up to the same tricks they used in November.
Republicans are finally taking some precautions.
Thousands of poll watchers have been recruited to help keep an eye on things.
FOX News reports:
Georgia Republicans recruit over 8,000 poll watchers for Senate runoff elections
Republicans in Georgia say they’ve recruited more than 8,000 volunteers in the state to serve as poll watchers for next week’s twin Senate runoff elections, where the GOP majority in the Senate is at stake.
The combined effort by the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which is the re-election arm of the Senate GOP; the Republican National Committee; the Georgia Republican Party and Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue’s campaigns is a “historic effort” to make sure that the Jan. 5 contests are “safe and secure,” party officials have said.
And the plan, shared first with Fox News on Wednesday evening, is the “largest and most aggressive ballot security and voter integrity operation in state history,” they said.
More than 8,000 volunteers will serve as poll watchers on Election Day, and that is roughly double the 4,000 volunteers Georgia Republicans recruited as poll watchers for the state’s two-and-a-half-week long early in-person voting period, which ends on Thursday.
It’s sad that we have to do this in the United States but it’s better to do it than ignore it.

More than 8,000 volunteers will serve as Republican poll watchers during the Georgia Senate runoffs.
This roughly doubles the number of watchers who oversaw the state's early voting proceedings.https://t.co/WOQhDS2Z89

Hopefully, Democrats won’t be able to steal these seats with thousands of ‘found’ ballots.
