Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said the state’s machine recount of the presidential race is on schedule to be completed by Wednesday, and pushed back against accusations of widespread fraud in the state’s Nov. 3 election results.
Brian Kemp and Mr. Raffensperger certified Georgia’s Nov. 3 election results over a week ago, on Nov. 20, declaring President-elect Joe Biden the winner of the state with 16 Electoral College votes.
Last week, the state’s 159 counties began a post-certification recount of the state’s 5 million presidential votes, which the Trump campaign requested.
This recount is a rescanning of ballots through machines, according to state rules.
“Once this recount is complete, everyone in Georgia will be able to have even more confidence in the results of our elections,” Mr. Raffensperger said in remarks at the state Capitol Monday.
