Gabriel Sterling, a top official in the secretary of state’s office, says Fayette County failed to record 2,755 votes on a single memory card. Sterling says that when the votes are added to the totals, they won't change the overall outcome of the race. 

Democrat Joe Biden leads Republican President Donald Trump in Georgia. The uncounted votes were discovered during a hand tally stemming from an audit required by state law.
