Georgia authorizes manual recount for presidential race

Brad Raffensperger, Republican Secretary of State for Georgia, announced Wednesday that “with the margin so close,” he has authorized a manual recount of the state election.

With the margin so close, it will require a full manual recount in each county. This will help build confidence. It will be an audit, a recount and a recanvas at the same time. It will be a heavy load, but we will work with the counties to get it done in time for our state certification. So if it was another race or if you didn’t have it that close then you could do it. And that would only be a sample size. But you can’t do that when it’s so close. This breed has national significance, national significance. We understand this. We understand that, we do – we follow – we follow the process. And we understand the significance of that, not only for Georgia, but for every American – at the end of the day, when we count hands, then we can exactly answer the question, what was the final margin in this race? If you are aware of a case of illegal voting or suspicion of illegal voting that brings it to us, trivia and stories don’t work. We need something that we can actually investigate.
