WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Georgian voters will wait until at least Friday for the final word on who will be their next governor, after the US federal judge ordered state election officials to review the provisional votes that were cast in the last week's election.
Judge Amy Totenberg of the US District Court requested a "good faith" or "independent" review of the votes cast by voters temporarily in a game between Democrat Stacey Abrams and the Republican on election officials in the county. Former Georgia State Secretary Brian Kemp.
The race was one of a dozen of major US competitions, where the final results remained unclear one week after the Americans were on the run. In the mid-term elections in the Congress, a divided federal government was issued on November 6, with the Democrats assuming control over the US House of Representatives and the Republican Party of President Donald Trump, who expanded his majority in the US Senate.

Officials in Florida also report on the results of the challenged US Senate and city cities.
"This remedy is indispensable and justified, based on the nature of the evidence in the minutes, the fundamental importance of the interests of voters that can not be eliminated after final confirmation, and the urgency of the situation," wrote Totenberg, who deals with the case at the federal court in Atlanta.
Officials should "be sure to check whether voters have issued temporary votes" or "perform an independent review" of voting rights data in order to avoid the delay in final certification, she said.
Kemp announced a victory on an election night, even when Abrams said that there were thousands more mail, temporary and absent votes, which still need to be broken down.
The competition in Georgia was under national control due to the role of Kemp as the country's top official in the country, which had a position on the vote on 6 November. Voting groups and prominent Democrats have accused the Republican of using his position to suppress minority votes, which he firmly rejected.
The Abrams fight for the first black female governor in the United States.
In Florida, officials began counting votes in the race between the departing Republican fleet, Rick Scott and the US Sen. Bill Nelson, in the run-up to the race, saying he was running in the race between the lords of the republic, Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum .
