Georgia has finished its statewide audit of the razor-thin presidential race, according to a news release from the Secretary of State’s office.
President-elect Joe Biden beat President Trump by 12,284 votes, according to the final results from the audit. This is a slight drop for Biden compared to the pre-audit results.
Georgia plans to certify Biden’s victory on Friday.
Officials have said repeatedly that the audit confirmed there was no widespread fraud or irregularities in the election.
More on the results: According to the final results of the audit, Biden finished with 2,475,141 votes and Trump finished with 2,462,857 votes. That gives Biden a victory of 12,284 votes over the President.
A report released by Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said, “The audit confirmed the original result of the election, namely that Joe Biden won the Presidential Contest in the State of Georgia.”
Raffensberger, a Republican who has been attacked by Trump for refusing to embrace conspiracy theories about fraud, said the audit uncovered “mistakes” but said the results can be trusted.
“Georgia’s historic first statewide audit reaffirmed that the state’s new secure paper ballot voting system accurately counted and reported results,” Raffensperger said in a statement released on Thursday night. “This is a credit to the hard work of our county and local elections officials who moved quickly to undertake and complete such a momentous task in a short period of time.”
