A corrected press release was sent out a few minutes ago after a previous statement stated that the results for the November 3 were already certified.
The corrected press release:
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger today will certify the results for the November 3, 2020 General Election. The certified results of state and federal races will be found on the Secretary of State’s website: http://sos.ga.gov/elections.
In certifying the results, the Secretary of State will affirm that all 159 counties have provided to the state the total votes tabulated for each state candidate. Further, the Secretary of State will affirm that the statewide consolidated returns for state and federal offices are a true and correct tabulation of the certified returns received by this office from each county.
After the certification, the two-business-day time period begins for a candidate who lost by less than 0.5% of the vote to request a recount. Certification does not preclude the state from continuing any current investigations related to the General Election or from pursuing any future allegations that may arise from these elections.
