Georgia’s Secretary of State has just ordered the hand recount and audit of all counties:
WSJ – Georgia Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger ordered all of the state’s 159 counties to conduct a hand recount and audit of all votes cast in the presidential race, an extraordinary step in an election with unprecedented high turnout.
As of Wednesday morning, Democratic nominee Joe Biden led President Donald Trump by a little over 14,000 votes out of almost 5 million cast. If Mr. Biden is declared the winner, it will be the first time a Democratic presidential candidate has carried the state since 1992.
Very glad to see this. Georgia has 16 delegates and it’s most certainly necessary for Trump to get to 270.
The hand count is important, but the audit is crucial at identifying whether a vote is fraudulent or not.
Raffensperger has come under fire since the election began, with both Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler calling for his resignation over what they say is mismanagement of the election in Georgia. He’s rebuffed their calls though, saying he’s not stepping down.
