Recount in Republican Race for State Senate District 50

A recount is planned for today in the Republican race for State Senate District 50.  In the August 11, 2020, runoff, Bo Hatchett received 40 more votes than Stacy Hall, so Hall requested a recount.  District 50 comprises Banks, Franklin, Habersham, Hall, Jackson, Rabun, Stephens, and Towns counties. In those counties, election officials will recount the ballots and submit the results to the Georgia Secretary of State.
