Georgia 7th: Bourdeaux to request recount

Democrat Carolyn Bourdeaux said Friday she plans to request a recount in Georgia’s 7th Congressional District, where she appears to have been narrowly defeated by Republican incumbent Rob Woodall.

The Georgia State University professor trailed Woodall by 419 votes, about 0.14% of votes cast, as the state prepared to certify its election results on Friday evening.

“It is crucial that every eligible vote is counted and every voice is heard,” Bourdeaux spokesman Jake Best said. “We want to make sure every vote was counted correctly and fairly, and that is why we intend to request a recount of this race.”

Georgia code allows a losing candidate down by less than 1 percent of the vote to request a taxpayer-funded recount within two business days of the election results being finalized by the state.

The exact timing of a recount was unclear. A spokeswoman for the Secretary of State, which is charged with directing recounts, did not immediately respond to an inquiry.

1. We are very hopeful


A bunch of us especially my wife worked very hard on the campaign. I was driving in the pouring rain trying to validate provisional and absentee ballots validate. I could tell some real blatant examples of voter suppression and manipulation.
I played golf with a friend and his mom was taken off the voter rolls. She was African American.
