On Thursday morning, Chatham Superior Court Judge James Bass turned down a petition by President Trump's campaign to order the county to secure and account for all ballots received on Election day after 7 p.m.

Bass declined to explain his decision at the end of the one-hour hearing, which affects the county containing the city of Savannah in Georgia.

According to local news affiliate 11 Alive, county officials called by Chatham County said under oath that the 53 ballots in question had all been received on time, and that there was no mingling of late ballets in the voting district.

The Trump campaign, however, has been very busy all over the country making sure that the votes being counted are those that were legally cast, and Georgia is no exception.

"President Trump and his team are fighting for the good of the nation to uphold the rule of law, and Georgia's law is very clear: to legally count, mail ballots must be received by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day. That's still the law, even after Democrats sued earlier this year to extend the deadline and delay Election Day — President Trump and Republicans fought to uphold Georgia law, and we won."

The Trump campaign reportedly is preparing many other legal challenges throughout Georgia for similar reasons.
