Thousands of military ballots yet to be counted in Georgia as presidential race tightens

FOX News 

Thousands of military ballots have yet to be counted in Georgia, which some say could give a boost to President Trump's numbers in the state, even as Democratic nominee Joe Biden pulls slightly ahead in the race to claim the state's 16 electoral votes. Biden early Friday was leading in the state with 2,449,371 votes, or 49.39% of the ballots cast, while the president had 2,448,454 votes, or 49.37% of the ballots cast. But there are thousands of military, overseas and provisional ballots that will soon be added to the vote tally. Military and overseas ballots have a later deadline than other absentee ballots and were required in Georgia to be postmarked by Nov. 3. Those ballots will be counted, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, if they are received at the county election offices by Friday, Nov. 6, at 5 p.m. ET.
