President Trump's campaign has said Georgia — where Joe Biden is narrowly leading — is "heading for a recount."
“Georgia is headed for a recount, where we are confident we will find ballots improperly harvested, and where President Trump will ultimately prevail, Trump campaign general counsel Matt Morgan said in the statement.
Remember: There is no automatic recount in Georgia. A candidate has to request a recount after results are certified.
Here's how that process works:
- Counties have to certify their elections by Nov. 13 at the latest.
- Then the state conducts “a risk limiting audit.”
- Then the state has to certify it election by Nov. 20 at the latest.
- Whoever comes in second place – be it Trump or Biden – can request a recount only after state certification and only if results are within 0.5%.
Earlier this morning, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said the state's election results are too close to call.
