Georgia secretary of state orders recount to be conducted ‘by hand’

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced Wednesday morning that the state’s recount will be conducted “by hand” in each of the state’s 159 counties.

“At 1 p.m. today, I will make the official designation of which race will be the subject of the RLA [risk-limiting audit]. At that time, I will designate that the RLA will be the presidential race,” Raffensperger explained.

According to the Associated Press, Joe Biden won 49.5 percent of the state’s vote, with 2,471,899 ballots, and Trump took 49.2 percent, with 2,457,791 votes, meaning that only 14,108 votes would determine the winner.

“With the margin being so close, it will require a full, by-hand recount in each county,” Raffensperger continued. “This will help build confidence,” adding that it will be “an audit, a recount, and a recanvass all at once.”

Sen. Doug Collins is leading the Trump campaign’s recount effort, and requested Raffensperger order a by-hand recount on Tuesday, arguing that ballot-counting machines and technology could have affected the outcome of the race.

Collins wrote in his request to Raffensperger:

As we begin the recount process, there are three things we are formally requesting today from Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. First, there must be a full comparison of absentee ballots cast and in-person and provisional ballots cast throughout the state.

Second, there must be a check for felons and other ineligible persons who may have cast a ballot. Third, and most importantly, the Secretary of State should announce a full hand-count of every ballot cast in each and every county due to widespread allegations of voter irregularities, issues with voting machines, and poll watcher access.

We can — and we will — petition for this in court after statewide certification is completed if the Secretary of State fails to act, but we are hopeful he will preemptively take this action today to ensure every Georgian has confidence in our electoral process.”

I agree with you Richard but only with the rules in place! Vote in person with ID except for the military personnel on deployment. NO MAIL IN VOTING. NO BALLOT HARVESTING! One day only! Also counting done by hand and certified by counting watchers of BOTH PARTIES!
Let’s see how sleepy Joe does in a real, transparent election!

We all know how well the pervert would do in a fair election which is why the commies resorted to cheating as always. Funny thing is they never get better at cheating even with all their practice. Lots of practice

You can go to hell. The only corruption is from the Democratic party. The only party that’s wants no voter I’d. You must be a criminal like the rest of them. People like you ate braindead with no integrity whatsoever. Biden is a flipping security risk to our country. And heels up Harris is nothing more than a commie and the whole world knows it. And dont even think basement Biden got more votes than Obama. That’s just insane you idiot.

Why is are government allowing these kind of violations to happen in all votes? We the people need to have ID to perform most everything we do and voting should be involved. Why is the government allowed pelosi and other senators to have percentages of the voting machines and voting polls?

Mr. President Donald J Trump. You are still the President do something to stop Biden, he thinks he won the election, but we know that he has cheated is way to the WH.
Those Demorats are the worst human beings that there on this earth. We need to get rid of them all. Trump will be the winner, make sure that the votes are counted legally, and make sure that Trump will prevail when they are finished counting all the ballots. You need honest people to count the votes. God Bless the President of the USA Donald J Trump.

Mr. Trump do not concede until it is proven that its a clean election. If not, prove that there’s voter fraud in different State.
Do not stop lawsuits against those people like Bidens, Pelosi, Schumer, Nader, Democrats, FBI as its their fault why you are impeached. Why the Biden family not imprisoned, your lawyers have all the proofs signed and documented? Is the election run by the government’s party? If its a DEm so a republican should be there too to witness the counting of the vote . The voter also should use a proper ballot with signature checked on file.

Recounts by hand are a really good thing! Just please do not use the same poll counters as before and make really sure there are observers in the room 6ft away and there are cameras!
Full Transparency…NO VOTER FRAUD!

The Democrats are and will continue to block illegal votes from NOT being counted! I hope that after all the cheating and fraud is made public, the Democrats responsible are brought to justice and that includes Joe Biden, who openly admitted to voter fraud! I could not and would not accept Biden and Harris as the leaders of our country even if the results were an honest one but, knowing that they cheated their way into the White House makes my distain for them even more intense!
