A Dominion Voting Systems mobile server crashed on Sunday, delaying a recount asked for by President Donald Trump, Georgia officials said, according to WXIA-TV.

"Technicians from Dominion have been dispatched to resolve the issue," said officials in Fulton County, Georgia’s most populous county. "The Georgia Secretary of State’s office has also been alerted to the issue and is aware of efforts to resolve the problem."

Officials said that, at the time of the breakdown, most of the recount had already been completed and that it will restart on Monday and be finished by Wednesday.

Dominion has been the focal point of claims by the president and his allies of voter fraud, the Washington Examiner reported. Sidney Powell, a lawyer from whom the Trump legal team distanced themselves recently, filed a federal lawsuit claiming that Georgia officials were bribed as part of a conspiracy with Dominion to rig the election in favor of Democrat Joe Biden, claims the company has categorically denied.

The breakdown of the machines came after a federal judge ordered all the state’s voting machines not be wiped until further notice, but then reversed the order a few hours later.

Georgia already certified the election results earlier this month after a first recount conducted by hand showed Biden winning the state by some 13,000 votes.
