Georgia Vote Audit Concludes After Finding Thousands of Uncounted Ballots

Now the eyes of the Peach State will be focused on the two Senate runoff races, set for a January 5th contest.

The saga of the 2020 election continues to play out this week, with a number of states participating in audits, recounts, and lawsuits, some of which could change the outcome of several key races.

President Trump hopes, and believes, that some combination of these actions could result in a second term in the White House for himself, but there seems to be plenty of disagreement on that from the Democrats, the mainstream media, and even some within his own party.

One of the states making headlines during their recount efforts was Georgia, where over 3,000 previously uncounted ballots were discovered and then added to the official count.

When it was all said and done, however, little changed in the way of the outcome. 

The Georgia secretary of state announced Thursday the completion of the state’s hand recount of votes cast in the 2020 presidential election and affirmed former Vice President Joe Biden’s lead.

The recount, which consisted of a full manual tally of all five million votes cast, began November 13, per the secretary of state’s office. The office is required to certify the results by Friday.

Initial results found Biden ahead of President Donald Trump by about 14,000 votes. The recount found Biden ahead by 12,284 votes. The secretary of state’s office said the variation in the results was anticipated.

“The differential of the audit results from the original machine counted results is well within the expected margin of human error that occurs when hand-counting ballots,” Ben Adida, executive director of VotingWorks, said in the secretary of state’s announcement. The secretary of state cited a study finding that “hand counting of votes in postelection audit or recount procedures can result in error rates of up to 2 percent.”

The office reported that in Georgia’s recount, the highest error rate in any county recount was .73 percent and said most counties did not see changes in their final tallies

This is the first time that Georgia has gone to a Democrat in a presidential race since 1992, and the Peach State will also decide the balance of the Senate as two runoff races are slated for January 5th, 2020.
