ATLANTA – Two days after polling day, civil servants’ electoral officers are diligently working to count every vote cast in Georgia.
Most of the state’s 159 counties have counted the unofficial results of the vote, but some counties in the most populous metropolitan area continue to count absent, tentative and military ballot tension.
But what happens after the unofficial count?
These votes then have to go through a process of prospecting and then certification. “The American political encyclopedia” Ballotpedia “describes the process as follows:” In which election officials check that each ballot has been counted correctly. Certification is the process by which the results of an election are formalized. ”
In Georgia, the various districts have 10 days after election day to confirm the voting results. That date for this election cycle is November 13th.
Once the votes have been confirmed at the county level, they will be sent to the Office of the Foreign Minister, who will have to confirm the votes cast for all candidates at both the state and local levels “at the latest” at 5.00 pm on the seventeenth day after the date of this election. “The date for this election cycle would be November 20th.
After that, the results should be sent to the governor.
