Following the hand recount, Gov. Brian Kemp (R) certified the election results late Friday.
The statement also stressed the importance of signature matching for mail-in ballots, something that is completed upon receipt of the ballot, before it is counted.
U.S. President Donald Trump's legal team said on Saturday that his campaign has requested another recount of votes in the presidential election in Georgia.
Despite the certification, Georgia officials said Trump's campaign could request another recount because the final margin between Trump and Biden was less than 0.5%.
Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield met with Trump at the White House but said they had not seen any evidence that would "change the outcome of the election" in the state.Читайте также: European Regulator Sees January Return For Boeing 737 MAX
"We are focused on ensuring that every aspect of Georgia State Law and the US Constitution are followed so that every legal vote is counted. President Trump and his campaign continue to insist on an honest recount in Georgia, which has to include signature matching and other vital safeguards", Trump's campaign said per CNN.
Later Saturday, Raffensperger sent a written message to his deputy asking him to officially notify county election directors to prepare for the recount and to notify political parties so they could muster observers at the respective sites.
The recount will be done using scanners that read and tabulate the votes.
Following Raffensperger's announcement of certifying Biden's win in the state, Trump took to Twitter to blast Georgia's ballot recount. There must be a time when we stop counting illegal ballots.
Raffensperger, who received threats for his work overseeing the election, has expressed full confidence in the vote count.
Trump's campaign has two business days from the certification date to request a recount.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
