The Democratic candidate and the media-projected winner of the US Presidential election, Joe Biden, has yet again won the key battleground state of Georgia after manual recount of votes from the November 3 elections. Biden’s victory in Georgia means it is the first time in 28 years (since 1992) that a Democratic candidate won the state. With a margin of 12, 248 votes, the former vice president of the United States beat President Donald Trump to get all 16 Electoral College votes from the state. Georgia’s Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, confirmed Biden’s victory on Thursday and hailed the process as ‘’historic.’’
Georgia’s historic first statewide audit reaffirmed that the state’s new secure paper ballot voting system accurately counted and reported results. This is a credit to the hard work of our county and local elections officials who moved quickly to undertake and complete such a momentous task in a short period of time
Owing to Biden’s less than 0.5 percent victory margin in the state, Trump is still eligible to file for a recount after certification on Friday.
