Georgia Will Conduct A Full Recount Of Presidential Ballots By Hand

The audit will serve as a full recount in this situation because of the large number of ballots cast and the narrow margin between the two candidates. "This will help build confidence", Brad Raffensperger, the secretary of state, told reporters at a press conference on Wednesday. On average, they shifted the outcome by 0.024%, Fair Vote found - a much smaller margin than Trump would need.

Roommates, following all of the uproar from Donald Trump regarding the 2020 election results which officially placed Joe Biden as the new President-elect, Georgia has made an interesting decision.

Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, said the margin in the tight presidential race between incumbent Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden who is leading was too close to call and as such a recount will determine the real victor.

However, Collins denied he was acting under Republican pressure.

"This race has national significant, national importance", he said.

Raffensperger said he expects the recount to be done in time for Georgia's certification of the presidential results, which has a November 20 deadline. 97 out of 159 counties have certified their results, per CNN.

Raffensperger said he also believed a hand recount, which he wants completed by 20 November, will not overturn the machine count that is near completion. "But we will do our statewide recount".

The Georgia Secretary of State announced Wednesday (Nov. 11), that a manual recount of the very close presidential vote in the state would be conducted.

The Trump campaign said a recount will begin in Georgia as soon as canvassing has concluded.

What if Trump Wrests Georgia in Recount?

Meanwhile, supporters of US president Donald Trump are planning to stage rallies here amid growing tensions. Control of the Senate will therefore come down to Georgia, where two Senate races are headed for runoffs in January.

The Trump campaign has filed more than a dozen lawsuits in at least five states. States are required to finalize their results by December 8. As of Friday evening, Biden led Trump by more than 14,000 votes.
