Fulton County to recount all ballots from Tuesday’s election | Here’s why
ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - All Fulton County elections will undergo a vote recount, according to a notice published by Fulton County election officials Friday.
The Fulton County Board of Registration and Elections has ordered a recount of Tuesday’s general municipal and special election votes out of Fulton County. Atlanta had several races for Atlanta’s Public School Board and places elsewhere in the county held contests for city council and mayoral seats.
The notice, signed by Fulton County Registration and Elections Superintendent Nadine Williams, states the recount will be conducted “to confirm the accuracy of the election results before election certification” and was triggered by the county “by its own motion.”
Fulton County officials told Atlanta News First the decision to recount came “due to the tight nature of several races.”
The recount will happen on Monday at 1 p.m. at the Elections Hub in Union City and should be completed by the end of that same day.
