Georgia confirmed the election results for the third time, Biden won the state with 11,779 votes
China News Agency, Houston, December 7th. The office of the Secretary of State of Georgia stated in a press release on the 7th that Georgia re-certified the results of the state’s 2020 US presidential election on the same day, reconfirming the Democratic president. The candidate, former Vice President Biden, won the election in Georgia.
Associated Press news, Georgia’s top election official and Secretary of State Ravensberg held a press conference on the same day and said, “We have counted three legal votes, and the election results have not changed.” The vote count showed that Biden led the Republican presidential candidate and current President Trump in Georgia with 11,779 votes.
According to Reuters, this is the third round of vote counting in Georgia. This recount was implemented at the request of the Trump campaign team.
Because the gap in the state’s initial vote count was within 0.5%, Georgia initiated a “risk limit audit” on November 13th in accordance with the law and conducted a manual recount. On the 20th of the same month, the state announced the statistical results, and Biden won the election in Georgia. However, as the result of the reconsideration ballot count is still within 0.5%, as the losing campaign team, the Trump team can require a recount according to law. This vote count uses a scanner to read and count the votes, and the counties in the state pay for it.
Georgia received approximately 5 million votes during the 2020 US presidential election. Secretary of State Ravensberg said on the same day that the results of the third ballot count showed that the total number of legitimate votes counted this time was 766 fewer than that of the first count. Ravensberg said this difference was not enough to change the state’s final vote count.
p > According to the “Washington Post” report, in recent days, Trump and his campaign have expressed dissatisfaction with the results of the Georgia campaign. Ravensberg said on the 7th, “Some people think that the election is full of problems, but the facts and evidence tell us something else.” In response to Trump’s doubts, Georgia Governor and Republican Kemp responded, The governor has no right to interfere in the election.
