Jovan Pulitzer invented the technology behind the QR code scanner, the code scanners used at grocery stores, the scanner that reads your dollar bill at a soda machine. In short, tech that involves paper or an object talking to a computer and then talking to a computer network like the internet is his. He invented the newest technology that detects counterfeit money and much of the technology that computers and your cell phones use today.

Pulitzer, in his testimony to the Georgia Senate, showed how ballots from Republican’s areas had the bar codes on them to track it to a signature verification but many from democrat areas did not, thus no way to verify the ballot to an actual voter. The bars printed on the ballots would also allow the machines to determine if the ballot came from a predominantly Republican area vs a Democrat area – now why would the voting machine need to know that?
Pulitzers machine can also tell if it had been folded to put in the mail in ballot, if it was put the the envelope and if the ballot was filled out by a machine or a human and even down to the type of ink pen used.
Here is his complete testimony.
Digital ID systems inventor Jovan Pulitzer testified at a Georgia State Senate subcommittee hearing on Dec. 30, 2020.
Pulitzer suggested all absentee ballots in the state of Georgia be forensically examined and fraudulent ones identified in just a matter of hours. He called on state officials to allow the examination.
One of the county’s polling managers previously told state lawmakers that she opened a box of mail-in ballots with a batch of 110 that were “pristine” and not folded, indicating that they were never put in secrecy envelopes, as is required.
Pulitzer said that he and his team can detect if that’s the case.
Security camera footage from election night shows that in Fulton County, what appears to be tens of thousands of ballots were counted in the absence of party or state monitors. The video seems to show that election workers scanned the same batches of ballots repeatedly. This could be a legitimate action when there’s a scanning error in the batch, such as when the ballots get jammed in the scanner.
In that scenario, the workers are supposed to discard the whole batch of scans and scan the ballots again, but the video quality makes it hard to discern if that was the case in each instance.
Pulitzer said that he and his team could detect if that was the case as well.
“We would be able to tell if they were folded, if they were counterfeit, whether they were filled out by a human hand, whether they were printed by a machine, whether they were batch-fed continually over and over, we can detect every bit of that,” he testified.
The ballot paper itself, when scanned, becomes a piece of code, he explained. Every time the paper is physically handled, such as folded or written upon, the code would change and the change can be detected.
The examination he proposed can be done expediently, he said.
“All of these problems that you’ve heard today can be corrected and detected now by the simplest of things. It takes you days or weeks to recount votes. Give me these 500,000 ballots, we’ll have them done in two hours,” he said, apparently referring to the 528,777 ballots cast in Fulton.
About 5 million ballots were cast statewide.
Pulitzer criticized state authorities for refusing to allow a full-scale forensic audit.
“This is the historical artifact of a voter. And states are telling voters, ‘You have no right to that,’” he said.
“The very voter that pays your salary, that paid for that ballot, that paid for that piece of paper, and paid for the machine that you’re running it in. And so those people that pay your salary, that you work for, and do this for, you’re telling them, ‘You can’t look at them.’
“That is both unacceptable and un-American.”
