DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — DeKalb County released its recount schedule on Tuesday morning, as all of Georgia's 159 counties began the official recount process that's expected to last into next week.

The county's Voter Registration and Elections director, Erica Hamilton, said DeKalb was "planning on deploying a recount plan that looks very similar to the recent risk-limiting audit," the hand-count conducted last week before Georgia's results were certified.
