The Georgia Secretary of State announced that “there will be a recount in Georgia.” Joe Biden currently holds a narrow lead there over President Trump with over a thousand votes.
Also, Georgia election official Gabriel Sterling said, “There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud – but they are seeing some small things – and that in an election this close, small things can add up.”
Under Georgia law, a candidate can request a recount if the margin is less than 0.5 percent of votes cast. The recount must be requested within two business days after county certification. Election officials may also request recounts under certain circumstances explained below. There are no set deadlines for completion.
