Marci McCarthy spent her weekend volunteering as a GOP observer in one of the most contested general elections in U.S. history and in her home state of Georgia, the recount is at the eye of the political storm.
She volunteered to observe the recount in Georgia’s DeKalb County, telling me it was her duty as an American and she wanted to ensure that the GOP was being thoroughly represented. According to Georgia election officials it took two days for DeKalb County workers to finish the recount. Roughly 300 people recounted more than 370,000 ballots over two 8-hour shifts Saturday and Sunday, and she said the situation left her feeling less secure about the election than before she walked in.
