The votes continue to be counted from Tuesday’s general election. Georgia is among the battleground states that could heavily influence the race for United States President between Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s Secretary of State says, “Officials in numerous
counties are continuing to count the ballots, with strong security protocols in place to protect the integrity of our election. We have long-anticipated – and said publicly – that counting would most likely take place into Wednesday night and perhaps Thursday morning.”
Raffensperger adds, “We’re well aware that with a close presidential election and the possibility of runoffs in some elections that the eyes of the state and nation are upon Georgia at this time.”
There will be a runoff election between Kelly Loeffler and Raphael Warnock for US Senate on January 5th. Early voting will begin on December 14th and continue for three weeks (aside from the holidays), asserts Dr. Thomas Rees, Chairman of the Floyd County Board of Elections and Registration.
Updated statewide results from Tuesday’s election are posted on the Secretary of State’s website at www.sos.ga.gov.
