ATLANTA — Last week, Georgia’s Secretary of State ordered all counties to do a hand recount of their ballots for the presidential election in Georgia.
The recount of the more than 5 million votes has to be completed before Georgia certifies its election results on Friday. The Secretary of State gave all counties a deadline of midnight Wednesday.
Many counties started this past Friday or Saturday and have been counting through the weekend.
Here’s where each county stands on its recount:
Cherokee County: Completed
Clayton County: Completed
Cobb County: Completed
