Georgia presidential count tightens in scan of last ballots

ATLANTA (AP) — Votes are still being counted in Atlanta-area counties as Americans watch from around the nation to see whether Georgia will give Democrat Joe Biden the electoral votes he needs to become president.

The Associated Press has not declared a winner in Georgia’s presidential contest because the race between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden is too early to call.

Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs told the AP that the final margin may be as small as 1,000 votes.

Several counties were shifting Thursday from scanning the final absentee ballots to having review panels study any votes that were flagged electronically to make sure the voter’s intent was clear.
