Donald Trump’s campaign is seeking to stop vote counts in parts of Georgia – an important battleground state that has not yet been projected for either candidate. The lawsuit alleges that a Republican observer saw a poll worker add 53 late postal ballots to a stack of ballots that arrived on time in Chatham County. In Georgia, ballots must be received before 19:00 on election day to be counted.
It’s the fourth key state where the president has filed legal challenges. He has vowed to stop the count in places where he says ballots are “fraudulent”. But he has not provided any evidence to support those claims.
In Michigan, his campaign filed a lawsuit to stop officials counting ballots. Biden is projected to win in the state with a slim margin. In Pennsylvania, Republicans are appealing against the state’s decision to count ballots that are postmarked by election day but arrive up to three days later. Hundreds of thousands of votes are yet to be counted in the state
In Wisconsin, the president’s campaign said it has requested a recount “based on abnormalities seen” on Tuesday
