Georgia will make another count following a request for a Trump campaign

“As the margin is still less than 0.5%, the President may request a recount after the results have been certified. This estimate will be made by suspending all portfolios,” said the Georgian Foreign Minister Brad Rafensperger had previously said in a statement on Friday after the completion of the state audit of the presidential results.
President-elect Joe Biden, who was declared the winner on Friday as state certified the results, has 12,670 votes or 0.2% in favor of President Donald Trump in Georgia.
Georgia has already made one control of presidential votes, which means that all the ballots in the presidential race were counted for the second time – which was a count.

Under Georgian law, the Trump campaign had two working days from Friday certification to request a recount, which will be funded by taxpayers.

“Today, the Trump campaign has called for a recount in Georgia. We focus on ensuring that every aspect of Georgia’s state law and the US Constitution is followed, so that every legitimate vote counts. “President Trump and his campaign continue to insist on an honest count in Georgia, which must include matching signatures and other vital guarantees,” Trump’s campaign said in a statement.

Matching signatures for mailing ballots does not happen in duplicates, however, according to campaign law expert Jonathan Diaz, a contributor to CNN. The signatures in the mail voting files are compared with those submitted earlier in the process. Trump’s campaign was disrupted as no ballots were cast due to signature issues.

Diaz said “no showdown is going to change” the margin over 12,000 votes.

“There is no real point in doing so, other than continuing to do this process and causing further delays,” Diaz said. “It’s a time of nonsense,” he said of the repeat request. “The war is over.”
