Secretary of state Brad Raffensperger pointed out the recount will be totally transparent, with election monitors allowed to observe the count.
“As we are closing in on a final count, we can begin to look toward our next steps. With a margin that small there will be recount in Georgia. Interest in our election obviously goes far beyond Georgia’s borders. 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. We will not let those debates distract us from our work. We will get it right, and we’ll defend the integrity of our elections.”
