Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger today certified the results of the state’s November 3 General Election. Raffensperger certified the vote tallies in all 159 counties at 4 p.m. Friday after a historic, week-long risk-limiting audit and hand recount.
During the recount, President Donald Trump netted approximately 1,500 votes, but it was not enough to overtake former Vice President Joe Biden. Biden beat Trump by more than 12,000 votes.
“I’m a proud Trump supporter but numbers don’t lie,” Raffensperger said.
The votes from the risk-audit/recount also affirmed runoffs in Georgia’s two U.S. Senate races and in the District 4 Public Service Commission race.
Once the results are certified, any candidate who lost by less than half a percentage point has until Tuesday to request a recount. Any future recounts will be conducted using high-speed scanners.
Here are the updated official results from the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office, including all absentee and provisional ballots. LAST UPDATED 11/21/20 AT 8:06 PM EST to correct percentage of votes required to request recount
