Washington: A recount being conducted by Georgia is not likely to change the result that gave Democrat Joe Biden a victory in the southern state in the November 3 US presidential election, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger told CNN on Wednesday.

“We’re finishing up, waiting for a few more counties to get back to us — some of the large counties — but I don’t believe at the end of the day it’ll change the total results,” Raffensperger said.

Officials are on track to finish the recount by the end of the day on Wednesday, a senior official said.

Georgia’s voting system implementation manager, Gabriel Sterling, said in a video call with journalists that the state aims to make public results of the recount on Thursday.
