Raffensperger Certifies June Runoff Results
(Atlanta) -- The Georgia Secretary of State’s Office is pleased to announce the certification of the June 21st Primary Runoff election. With 460,602 ballots cast in the runoff, Georgia voters were able to cast their ballot with unprecedented ease and security.
“The success of the primary and runoff reflects the tremendous work of our county election officials,” said Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. “Election officials in all 159 Georgia counties worked tirelessly to deliver accurate results and a voting system that works for all Georgians.”
Official results of the local, state, and federal races are available on the Secretary of State’s election night reporting website.
Candidates seeking a recount must request one within two business days after certification. Under O.C.G.A. § 21-2-495, a recount can be requested by the second-place candidate if the difference in votes between the winning candidate and second-place candidate is not more than 0.5% of the total votes cast in the race.
