Georgia audit on track to finish Wednesday and affirm Biden win, official says

Gabriel Sterling, the state’s voting systems implementation manager, said Tuesday there are only approximately 300,000 ballots left to be hand-counted in Georgia out of the nearly 5 million cast in the presidential election.

Meanwhile, election officials from 29 counties across Georgia told CNN that they had already completed their audits and found no discrepancies with the results — further discrediting President Donald Trump’s lies about widespread fraud in the state.

The state is required by law to certify its results by Friday, which would thwart long-shot efforts by Trump to delay certification and potentially overturn the results of the state’s election through the Electoral College. The President has repeatedly made unfounded allegations of fraud following his election defeat on November 3, and his campaign has launched legal challenges in multiple states seeking to prevent certification of results.
