Sen. Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., said Tuesday he has been given information Georgia has a "credible process" for conducting a signature audit of absentee ballots from the Nov. 3 election.

Graham posted to Twitter:

"I have just been briefed about the signature verification system in Georgia regarding 2020 mail-in ballots. From what I've been told, sounds like they now have a credible process in place to do a signature audit. Look forward to hearing the results!"

Graham gave no further details and The Epoch Times said efforts to reach out to his office and that of the Georgia secretary of state were not returned.

Previously, election officials have said a signature audit of mail-in ballots is impossible once the ballot is separated from the outer envelope.

However, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said Thursday he had ordered a state-wide audit of signature-matching for the November election.

Raffensperger's announcement came less than three weeks before the Jan. 5 Georgia Senate runoff election for both seats in the upper chamber. Incumbent Sens. David Perdue, R-Ga., and Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., are running against Democrats Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock.

The election will determine which party will hold a Senate majority.

The University of Georgia will partner with the secretary's office to analyze a random sampling of signatures from each county for mail-in ballots during the November election, a press release said. The audit is expected to be completed within two weeks.
