NEWS: the Trump campaign has officially filed a petition for a recount in Georgia.
MORE: the campaign is legally entitled to request one, but a few notes:

Before certifying, Georgia did an audit (state law required) which amounted to hand recount of all 5million ballots.

GA officials hoped "common sense would prevail," satisfy everyone results are valid (1/2)
The recount process will be a machine scan of each ballot (not a signature match, as the campaign has requested).

As for cost - each county will have to pay for the manpower required to scan the ballots. (2/2)

And worth noting this again:

There is *no* evidence of widespread voter fraud or irregularities. Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State has said this repeatedly.

🚨More than 2 weeks after Election Day, Georgia has officially certified election results - with President Elect Joe Biden as the winner.

Now the clock is on: the Trump campaign has TWO business days to request a recount in Georgia.

Here’s film statement from @GaSecofState office: Image
That week, I asked @GabrielSterling about the Trump campaign potentially requesting a Georgia recount. His response:

“My personal that common sense would prevail.

That they’d say, look - you’ve already had a hand recount and nothing changed. Let’s not do that.”

1st day of Georgia early voting. This is one Atlanta (Fulton County) precinct.

I talked to a dozen people near the front of the line. They’d all been waiting nearly 4 hours to vote. #GAvotes #GApol
Every voter I spoke with told me two things:

-they came prepared for long lines w/ snacks, chairs, umbrellas (some even expected the wait bc of holiday)

-they will not leave until they cast their ballot

As one woman told me: “We’re voting for our lives” #Georgia #vote
These non-partisan volunteers spent hours handing out water + snacks to people in line.

They call themselves “line warmers.”

“We just want to make people feel more comfortable participating in our democracy”
