Georgia earlier in the week already completed a full hand recount of all the ballots in the state at the behest of the secretary of state.
The Trump campaign has requested a recount in Georgia, the campaign announced Saturday night. President-elect Joe Biden won the state by more than 12,000 votes.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and Governor Brian Kemp, both Republicans, have already certified the election results. Georgia allows for a candidate to request a recount following certification if the margin of victory is within .5 percentage points. Mr. Biden won by a little over .2%.

"President Trump and his campaign continue to insist on an honest recount in Georgia, which has to include signature matching and other vital safeguards," the Trump campaign said in a statement Saturday.
