In Georgia, election administration issues led to miscounted ballots in several counties:
So many in the media refuse to cover the problems in GA. They found votes in GA that were not originally counted, and the process needs to be improved to ensure election integrity. https://t.co/zyhPD2ZD4R— Mercedes Schlapp (@mercedesschlapp) November 18, 2020
In Nevada, allegations of a "cash for votes scheme" were reported by The Federalist in an article published earlier today. The alleged scheme took place in plain sight without elections officials saying anything about it:
Under the guise of supposedly nonprofit, nonpartisan get-out-the-vote campaigns, Native American voter advocacy groups in Nevada handed out gift cards, electronics, clothing, and other items to voters in tribal areas, in many cases documenting the exchange of ballots for “prizes” on their own Facebook pages, sometimes even while wearing official Joe Biden campaign gear.
Simply put, this is illegal. Offering voters anything of value in exchange for their vote is a violation of federal election law, and in some cases punishable by up to two years in prison and as much as $10,000 in fines. That includes raffles, free food, free T-shirts, and so on.
What happens when concerns are raised about lack of transparency? In Michigan, a Republican canvasser and her children were threatened by a state Representative-elect:

WATCH as Democrat State Rep-Elect Abraham Aiyash threatens the children of Wayne County Board of Canvassers member Monica Palmer.
"I want you to think about what this means for your kids, who probably go to [redacted]"...
The Republican members of the Wayne County Canvassing Board initially voted against certifying the county's election results over concerns about voting irregularities.
It is abundantly clear that we need more transparency to increase confidence in our elections. It is crucial to maintaining the the open, fair, and honest nature of the U.S. election system.
