Election officials in Georgia are gearing up for the possibility that next month’s Senate runoff elections may spend weeks in litigation before a final winner is determined.
The state has become closely divided in recent years and both Democrats and Republicans expect the results to be razor-thin.
President Trump lost the state in the 2020 presidential election by around 12,000 votes. The president has refused to concede, saying he was the victim of widespread voter fraud — allegations GOP officials in the state say are baseless.
Since that time the president has demanded — and received — both hand and machine recounts of Georgia vote which continued to affirm his loss in the state.
