Blitzer asks top Georgia election official if he's seen widespread voter fraud
Georgia's Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger says that he has not seen any evidence of widespread voter fraud in his state's presidential election and also doesn't anticipate a hand recount will change President-elect Joe Biden's victory there.
Georgia election officials gave an update on the vote count Friday afternoon, after announcing earlier in the day that the state is headed toward a ballot recount in the presidential race. Watch it here. A top Georgia election official said Thursday that a hand tally of ballots cast in the presidential race has been completed, and that the results affirm Democrat Joe Biden's narrow lead over Republican President Donald Trump. In Georgia, four in every five votes counted overnight went Biden's way. As FRANCE 24's reporter Clovis Casali reports from Atlanta, local election officials from both sides of the divide have been infuriated by President Donald Trump's baseless allegations about voting impropriety. The state is set for a recount, though with Biden winning Pennsylvania late Saturday, the outcome will not affect the final election result. Gabriel Sterling, the Voting System Implementation Manager for the state of Georgia, praised those working to accurately report election results and assured they "are not involved in voter suppression."
