We have that in Georgia too. In a normal ballot, you get some drop-off in votes cast as you go down the list, because some people haven't investigated the lesser offices, or are in a hurry. This time, the lieutenant governor showed 100,000 missing votes, but *only* on the machine tally. The mail-in votes show no such drop-off, which indicates is was not disinterest in that race. Georgia has no paper trail for our election machines, so we don't have a way to verify how many votes were actually cast. One thing you can do is inspect the software and test the machines, but the Secretary of State, who oversees elections, seems disinterested in doing that.
