Georgia's hand tally of the presidential race begins today.

Georgia's voting system implementation manager Gabriel Sterling says the audit -- required under a new state law -- is meant to show the machines counted all ballots fairly.

President-elect Joe Biden leads President Trump by about 14,000 votes.

Election officials in Georgia's 159 counties must complete the hand tally by 11:59 p.m. Wednesday.

The state certification deadline is Nov. 20.
