Mail-in paper ballot election results just received from each South Carolina county under Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) requests confirm that there were enough voting discrepancies in the recent U.S. Senate Democratic primary to have reversed the election outcome. That race had dramatic, inexplicable discrepancies between the verifiable mail-in absentee paper ballot results and the unverifiable electronic voting results recorded on Election Day, June 8. In that race, Alvin Greene was declared the winner based on a near landslide 60-40% margin in Election Day electronic voting results. However, certified mail-in paper ballot results received from the counties after a 15 business day response period allowed under South Carolina law, show that Vic Rawl actually won the verifiable mail-in paper ballot absentee voting by a solid 55-45% margin. The near 30% total point differential among the two candidates is unheard of in South Carolina election history and perhaps, nationally as well. Neither candidate emphasized absentee voting so there is no reasonable explanation for such a vast difference. VoterGA issued the FOIA requests because South Carolina counties do not report separate absentee totals for mail-in paper ballot votes and in-person electronic votes. While some of this information was previously known, here is what the official replies to the requests revealed:

In not one county did Alvin Greene win the absentee mail-in vote count and lose the Election Day vote count

In not one county did Vic Rawl win the Election Day vote count and lose the mail-in absentee vote count

In 41 of 46 counties, Alvin Greene's Election Day vote percentage exceeded his mail-in paper ballot absentee percentage;

In 34 of those 41 counties, Alvin Greene's Election Day electronic votes exceeded his mail-in paper ballot absentee votes by an abnormal margin of 15%

In no counties with more than 10 paper ballot casts did Vic Rawl have an abnormal margin of 15% or more (total for both candidates)

The individual county results illustrate the differences between Election Day electronic voting results and mail-in paper ballot absentee voting results much more dramatically:

In Aiken County, Alvin Greene won the Election Day vote 60% to 40% but Vic Rawl prevailed in the mail-in paper ballots by 70% to 30%;

In Barnwell County, Alvin Greene won the Election Day vote63% to 37% but Vic Rawl prevailed in the mail-in paper ballots by 75% to 25%;

In Beaufort County, Alvin Greene won the Election Day vote 60% to 40% but Vic Rawl prevailed in the mail-in paper ballots by 82% to 18%;

In Dorchester County, Alvin Greene won the Election Day vote 60% to 40% but Vic Rawl prevailed in the mail-in paper ballots by 67% to 33%;

In Florence County, Alvin Greene won the Election Day vote 70% to 30% but Vic Rawl prevailed in the mail-in paper ballots by 58% to 42%;

In Greenwood County, Alvin Greene won the Election Day vote 76% to 24% but Vic Rawl prevailed in the mail-in paper ballots by 51% to 49%;

In Lancaster County, Alvin Greene won the Election Day vote 59% to 41% but Vic Rawl prevailed in the mail-in paper ballots by 90% to 10%;

In Newberry County, Alvin Greene won the Election Day vote 55% to 45% but Vic Rawl prevailed in the mail-in paper ballots by 84% to 16%;

In Spartanburg County, Alvin Greene won the Election Day vote 61% to 39% but Vic Rawl prevailed in the mail-in paper ballots by 72% to 28%;
