The results of a week-long hand recount of ballots in Georgia show President-elect Joe Biden did win the Peach State.
Georgia has finished its statewide audit of the razor-thin presidential race and President-elect Joe Biden defeated President Donald Trump, according to a news release from the Secretary of State’s office.
Biden beat Trump by 12,284 votes, according to the final results from the audit. This is a slight drop for Biden compared to the pre-audit results.
Officials have said repeatedly that the audit confirmed there was no widespread fraud or irregularities in the election.
Per state law, the Trump campaign will have two business days to request a machine recount once these results are certified which is expected to occur on Friday.
