Roughly 48,000 votes cast by Election Day remain to be counted in Georgia. Americans are watching to see whether the state will give Democrat Joe Biden the electoral votes he needs to become president. The Associated Press has not declared a winner in Georgia’s presidential contest because the race between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden is too early to call. Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs told the AP that the final margin may be as small as 1,000 votes. As counties wrap up their counting, they're handing some ballots flagged electronically to review panels to determine the voter's intent.
