SOS Crittenden Certifies November General Election Results in Georgia

It’s over. Officially.

Interim Secretary of State Robyn Crittenden has certified the General Election results from November 6th.

The announcement was made at 4:30 on Saturday afternoon.

From a press release:

Pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 21-2-499, after receipt of certified election results from all county election superintendents, the Secretary of State has tabulated, computed, canvassed, and certified the votes cast for all federal and state officers and questions voted for by voters of more than one county. Official results are now accessible on the Secretary of State’s Election Night Reporting website.

To comply with U.S. District Judge Totenberg’s order, twenty-seven counties were required to conduct a second review of provisional ballots rejected for code ‘PR,’ meaning that individuals did not appear on the voter rolls when they cast provisional ballots. To comply with orders by U.S. District Judges Jones and May, all counties were required to count absentee by mail ballots where those ballots were previously rejected solely due to missing or inaccurate dates of birth. 

On Friday evening, Democrat Stacey Abrams offered remarks about the election, the legal challenges that ensued, and offered an acknowledgement that Brian Kemp would be Governor but said she was not “conceding.”
