(Reuters) - The U.S. presidential election result that handed the battleground state of Georgia to Joe Biden will be certified after counties meet a recount deadline on Wednesday, a Democratic campaign aide said.

“The current status as we understand it is that all of Georgia’s 159 counties will meet the state’s deadline of midnight today and will have their results certified,” said Biden campaign legal adviser Patrick Moore on a call with reporters.
