Thank you for contacting the Georgia Department of Law, Office of Attorney General. We received the open records request below July 20, 2020. Our agency does not possess responsive records. You may want to contact the Georgia Secretary of State and/or the appropriate county election superintendent for the policies and procedures for election recounts, as our office takes no role in the administration of either elections or recounts. This completes your request.
