OREANDA-NEWS. The recount of votes in the US presidential elections in the state of Georgia revealed over 2.6 thousand uncounted votes in the Floyd County.

According to the newspaper Atlanta Journal-Constitution, presumably, the failure was caused by a problem with a ballot scanner. However, Georgia’s election commissioner Gabriel Sterling told reporters that it was not a technical failure and called for the resignation of the head of the local election commission.

The publication notes that the discovered ballots could help US President Donald Trump decrease the gap with Democratic candidate Joe Biden, who is elected head of the United States according to preliminary media reports.

It is known that in other counties of the state, the recount has not yet revealed a significant difference in the number of votes. Georgia, with its 16 electors, is one of four states that can determine the result of presidential election in the USA.
