CHATHAM CO., Ga. (WTGS) — Georgia played as a battleground state this general election and the Trump Campaign said they plan to demand a recount.

Antwan T. Lang, member of Chatham County Board of Elections says the county plans to certify their election results today, but a recount cannot happen until every local board and county has done so. The state will then gather that information and certify the state’s results.
