Georgia: Biden closes gap with Trump to fewer than 500 votes.

first_img“We’re doing our best to just make sure that we get every vote counted,” she said. “Whatever it takes to get that done, we’re going to do it.”- Advertisement – In the early hours of Friday, the nation’s attention turned to Clayton County, Georgia, where the latest batch of ballots narrowed President Trump’s lead in the state to fewer than 500 votes.By 4 a.m., 98 percent of the state’s precincts had reported their totals, with roughly 2,500 ballots left to count in Clayton. – Advertisement – Election workers in face masks and plastic visors counted absentee ballots — many of them from U.S. service people — through the night. “We are going to stay here until every single absentee ballot is counted,” Shauna Dozier, the director of Clayton County’s board of elections, said in a televised interview with CNN shortly after 2 a.m, adding that she expected to finish counting later in the morning. “We’re doing our best to just make sure that we get every vote counted. Whatever it takes to get that done, we’re going to do it.” Election workers in gloves, face masks and plastic visors counted absentee ballots — many of them from U.S. service people — through the night.” We are going to stay here until every single absentee ballot is counted,” Shauna Dozier, the director of Clayton County’s board of elections, said in a televised interview with CNN shortly after 2 a.m, adding that she expected to finish counting later in the morning. Local journalists and election observers anxiously watched the count through a window from an adjoining room, trying to interpret the poll workers’ movements for signs of how many votes remained.Clayton County, a heavily Democratic area south of Atlanta, received roughly 30,000 absentee ballots this year, compared to only 3,170 in 2016, Ms. Dozier said. The margin in Georgia remains so narrow that election analysts said it would be difficult to call the race early Friday, even if Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. pulls ahead. But a victory for Mr. Biden would significantly narrow Mr. Trump’s path to holding onto the presidency.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more
