A federal judge in Georgia has ordered a recount of votes on behalf of gubernatorial hopeful Stacey Abrams.

Judge Amy Totenberg made the ruling late Monday for election officials to review thousands of uncounted provisional ballots, stating that the race can’t be officially certified until that is done.

Voters complained about being informed at polling stations that they weren’t registered and would have to cast provisional ballots.

Abrams, a Democrat who had squared off with Brian Kemp, would need more than 20,000 additional votes to force a runoff against her Republican opponent.
