Georgia To Re-Certify Result After Third Vote Count

The Washington Post reports:

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) on Monday said his office would recertify the state’s election results, reaffirming Biden’s victory after a second statewide recount of presidential votes.

The presidential ballots in Georgia have now been counted three times. The latest recount, which was done at the request of the Trump campaign, entailed a rescan of ballots that had been hand-recounted by election officials.

“Continuing to make debunked claims of a stolen election is hurting our state,” Raffensperger said during a news conference Monday morning. “The president has his due process rights and those are available to him. It’s time we all focus on the future and growth.”
