The results of the election in the US state of Georgia which will decide the control of the Senate are expected by lunch time on Wednesday. This was the submission of Georgia’s election official Gabriel Sterling.
All four candidates were in a dead heat with 98% of ballots counted from Georgia’s 159 counties.
Thousands of votes remain to be counted in the Atlanta suburbs such as DeKalb County, which is expected to go heavily for the Democrats.
US President-elect Joe Biden’s Democrats need to win both seats to gain full control of Congress while the Republican party of outgoing President Donald Trump needs only to win one in order to retain the Senate.
More than three million votes – about 40% of the state’s registered voters – were cast before Tuesday.
