Largest Hand Re-tally of Ballots in US History Gets Underway in Georgia

Election officials in Georgia’s 159 counties are undertaking a hand recount of the presidential race stemming from a “risk-limiting audit” that is required by state law, which when completed will be the largest hand re-tally in the history of the United States.

The law requires that one race be audited by hand to check that the machines counted the ballots accurately. Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger chose to audit the presidential race and said the tight margin, with Democrat Joe Biden leading President Donald Trump by 14,072 votes—means a full hand count is needed.

Gabriel Sterling, Georgia’s voting system implementation manager, told a press conference on Nov. 12 that the hand recount is a normal part of the risk-limiting audit and its objective is to “instill confidence” in the accuracy of electronic voting machines and, more broadly, the election.
