Joe Biden maintains lead in Georgia after hand recount
Why it matters: The report concludes that President-elect Joe Biden is ahead of President Trump by 12,284 votes, slightly narrowing Biden's lead of around 14,000 before the risk-limiting audit.
The big picture: Although Georgia does not have mandatory recount laws, the state permits a recount if the margin is less than 0.5%, according to NPR. The margin currently sits at at 0.3%.
- Four counties with new vote totals must recertify their results, and statewide results must be certified by Friday.
- After results are certified, the Trump campaign has until Nov. 24 to request another recount.
