He said that the counties covering the Atlanta metro area, DeKalb, Fulton and Cobb, as well as Forsyth County, are still counting all of those votes and then will need to move on to counting ballots returned by overseas and military voters.
Raffensperger said his team across the state is trying to finish counting the votes by the end of the day.
“Every legal ballot will be counted,” he said.
– Partisan observers fuel tension as Detroit election workers tally absentee ballots
DETROIT — As the nation anxiously awaits the final vote tally in Michigan, the state’s political attention is turning to a massive convention center basement in downtown Detroit.
Hundreds of election workers have been working in shifts here since Monday to process an unprecedented flood of absentee ballots in Detroit that will be crucial to determining whether Donald Trump or Joe Biden won this battleground state, and whether Democrat Gary Peters has held onto his seat in the Senate.
Both political parties are here in large numbers, with scores of partisan observers representing major political parties as well as organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union and the Election Integrity Fund, an organization affiliated with the conservative Thomas More Society that sued the state over the summer over its absentee ballot procedures.
