Secretary of State conclusions:
The differential of the audit results from the original machine counted results is well within the expected margin of human error that occurs when hand-counting ballots. A 2012 study by Rice University and Clemson University found that “hand counting of votes in postelection audit or recount procedures can result in error rates of up to 2 percent.” In Georgia’s recount, the highest error rate in any county recount was .73%.
–The final vote must be certified
— Because the margin is less than 0.5%, President Trump can request another recount. The state would rescan all paper ballots. The current recount was done by hand by election workers.
