Georgia has announced a recount for the presidential election due to such a slim margin between both candidates. This was announced by State Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger during a briefing that was broadcast by Fox News.
Secretary of State said that of the five million votes cast, there was only a gap of 1,000 between Joe Biden and Donald Trump.
"With a margin that small, there will be a recount in Georgia. Interest in our election, obviously goes far beyond Georgia’s borders", he added.
"The final tally in Georgia, at this point, has huge implications for the entire country. The stakes are high and emotions are high on all sides."
The state has 16 electoral college votes, which would give Biden more than the 270 needed to become president.
Biden has 2,449,590 votes (49.39%) while Trump has 2,448,492 (49.37%).
As we reported earlier, On November 5, Trump demanded to stop the vote count, claiming his observers were not allowed to work on polling stations.
Further, he demanded that the Supreme Court decide the outcome of the election.
