After counting nearly 5 million votes in Georgia, the difference between the results obtained by President Trump and the Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, is so tight that they will be counted by hand.
Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, announced that the procedure would be followed in all 159 counties, according to Breitbart, on Nov. 11.
“With the margin being so close, it will require a full, by-hand recount in each county. This will help build confidence,” Raffensperger said.
He added, “It will be a heavy lift, but we will work with the counties to get this done in time for our state certification.”
With a margin of just 14,000 votes between the two candidates, many states’ irregularities have worried Republicans, who demand transparency.
Rep. Doug Collins, (R-Ga.), who heads Trump’s campaign recount team, had formally requested a recount.
Collins argued that they were motivated by “widespread allegations of voter irregularities, problems with voting machines, and access for election observers.
He also said, “In order for Americans to have full faith and confidence in our elections, every legal vote must be counted, and every illegal or fraudulent vote must be excluded.”
Also, Collins asked to compare the amounts of votes received by mail with those submitted by voters personally and make sure that unqualified people, such as criminals, did not appear on the ballot.
Georgia Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler accused Raffensperger of a lack of transparency in handling the electoral process and requested his resignation.
“The Secretary of State has failed to deliver honest and transparent elections. He has failed the people of Georgia, and he should step down immediately,” Perdue and Loeffler wrote in a statement.
The statement also said, “The mismanagement and lack of transparency from the Secretary of State is unacceptable. Honest elections are paramount to the foundation of our democracy,”
In what is considered the most crucial presidential election in U.S. history, there have been unprecedented signs of fraud, with the aggravating circumstance that everyone is running for Biden.
In several states, the situation is very similar in terms of irregularities.
A few hours ago, Michigan state senators officially called for a full audit of the 2020 general election.
Their request was addressed to Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson.

The irregularities and fraudulent acts denounced by the Republicans in the electoral process increasingly favor President Trump’s chances of re-election.
“Despite all the fraud, the President currently has more ways to win the election than Biden,” says The Gateway Pundit’s Joe Hoft.
