Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) on Monday warned of misinformation efforts targeting supporters of President Trump as the state plans to post the election recount results online.

“There are those who are exploiting the emotions of many Trump supporters with fantastic claims, half-truths, misinformation. And, frankly, they are misleading the president as well, apparently,” Raffensperger said during a press conference.

He also said the results of the election recount would be available online soon after the Wednesday midnight deadline, saying, “The truth matters, especially around election administration.”

The results would affirm that Georgia’s voting system was sound, Raffensperger added.

“That is the great thing about our paper ballot system. It is auditable, it is accountable and can provide voters the confidence that the outcomes are correct,” he said. “Once this recap is complete everyone in Georgia will be able to have even more confidence in the results of our elections.”
