TIFTON – Tift County elections and registration officials have been conducting a state-mandated hand recount for the 2020 election results that will be open to the public.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger ordered the hand recount of votes for the state. He said during a press conference, "With the margin being so close, it will require a full by hand recount in each county. This will help build confidence."
The recount is open to the public but masks are required to enter county buildings, as mandated by the Tift County Board of Commissioners.
Recounting started 9 a.m. Friday, Nov. 13. The location of the recount will be in the Old Gym, 222B Chesnutt Ave. More information, call (229) 386-7915.
