Georgia Governor Brian Kemp issued remarks in Atlanta Friday an hour after Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced he certified the results.
A release from Raffensperger said: “In certifying the results, the Secretary of State affirmed that all 159 counties have provided to the state the total votes tabulated for each state and federal candidate. Further, the Secretary of State affirms that the statewide consolidated returns for state and federal offices are a true and correct tabulation of the certified returns received by this office from each county.”
With the certification, the two-business-day time period begins for a candidate who lost by less than 0.5% of the vote to request a recount. Certification does not preclude the state from continuing any current investigations related to the General Election or from pursuing any future allegations that may arise from these elections.
