US state Georgia to hand recount presidential election ballots

 (FM) -Georgia, a southern U.S. state, will conduct a statewide hand recount of presidential election ballots, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced on Wednesday.

 

Former Vice President Joe Biden holds a lead over President Donald Trump of more than 14,000 votes among nearly 5 million ballots cast in the state, according to NBC News.

 

"With the margin being so close, it will require a full, by-hand recount in each county," Raffensperger, a Republican, said at a press conference.

 

 

 "This will help build confidence. It will be an audit, a recount and a recanvass all at once," he said.

 

The state will complete the recount in time to meet its Nov. 20 deadline for certifying statewide election results, said Raffensperger.

 

Democrat Biden declared victory for the U.S. presidential election on Saturday night, days after Election Day. Trump hasn't conceded and is mounting challenges in court over allegations of voter fraud and counting misconduct.

 

Biden has clinched at least 279 electoral votes, according to projections by U.S. media networks. To win the White House, a candidate needs at least 270 electoral votes of the 538 in total.
