Georgia’s Republican governor and top elections official have certified results showing Joe Biden won the presidential race over Republican President Donald Trump. The certification Friday brings the state one step closer to wrapping up an election that has been fraught with unfounded accusations of fraud by Trump and his supporters. Since the margin separating the candidates is less than 0.5%, President Donald Trump can ask for a recount that would be done by scanners that read and tally the votes.

A top Georgia elections official says a hand tally of the presidential race in Georgia is complete, and the results affirm Democrat Joe Biden’s lead over Republican President Donald Trump. Gabriel Sterling released the information to The Associated Press on Thursday.

Election officials across Georgia are staring down a deadline to complete a hand tally of the presidential race in the state. The hand recount of nearly 5 million votes stemmed from an audit required by a new state law and wasn’t in response to any suspected problems with the state’s results or an official recount request.

That process of counting Georgia’s five million votes will include some 51 thousand in Athens-Clarke County.

 

The ACC Board of Elections will start its count Friday the 13th from 9 am until 4 pm and will continue the process under the same schedule Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday until complete. 

 

The count can be viewed online or in-person by reservation.
