Recount Highly Unlikely to Change Result

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Wednesday ordered the state’s counties to recount by hand all votes cast in the presidential race.

Raffensperger, a Republican, has been criticized by Trump supporters who have claimed without evidence that there was fraud.
