Protesters gather outside Broward Elections HQ as possible recount looms

Protesters gather outside Broward Elections HQ as possible recount looms

Later, she ran for the Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections and won.

"An emergency hearing is necessary as the Canvassing Board is obligated to submit the unofficial elections results to the Division of Elections by noon November 10, 2018".

"Mayor Gillum conceded on Election Day and now Broward County has put him 'back into play.' Bill Nelson conceded Election - now he's back in play!?"

In his comments to the media, Scott accused Snipes of a history of "bad faith" and Bucher, a former state House member, of refusing to provide "information to the public" and requiring official party representatives to stand behind a glass wall in the ballot counting area.

That could change however, as ballots continue to be counted in Broward, which is Florida's second largest and one of its most Democratic counties where 1.2 million people are registered to vote.

Mr Gillum trails Mr DeSantis now by less than 38,000 votes, which is in recount range if the margin holds.

"We've all seen the incompetence and irregularities of vote tabulations in Palm Beach and Broward County for years".

Scott's thin lead over Nelson has narrowed during the vote-counting in the days since he declared victory Tuesday night.

Trump echoed Scott's claims Thursday night, tweeting that "Law Enforcement" would look into election fraud in Florida. In other counties the section for Scott and Nelson was presented more prominently at the top of the ballot.


Dan McLaughlin, a spokesman for Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson is awaiting results against Republican challenger Gov. Rick Scott, Trump narrowly won the state by less than 1.5 percentage points. "The supervisors, Brenda Snipes and Susan Booker, can not seem to say how many ballots still exist and where these ballots came from or where they have been".

Moments later, as the president was en route to Paris for a meeting with world leaders, he tweeted, "You mean they are just now finding votes in Florida and Georgia - but the Election was on Tuesday?"

Elias said Scott's words are revealing.

High-profile U.S. elections in Florida remained unresolved and the prospect of legal challenges, recounts and ballot reviews are setting the stage for possible weeks of uncertainty.

"This information Supervisor of Elections should have already compiled and saved".

Both Florida and Georgia were preparing for ballot recounts on Friday, as contentious races for the US Senate and state governorships descended into controversy amid Republicans' accusations of Democratic vote tampering, and counter-questions about potentially confusing ballot papers.

"So it has been over 48 hours since the polls closed, and Broward and Palm Beach counties are still finding and counting ballots, and the supervisors - Brenda Snipes and Susan Bucher - can not seem to say how many ballots still exist or where these ballots came from, or where they have been", Scott said. Her department's website said ballots cast on Election Day have been counted.

Our media completely believe without evidence that Donald Trump engaged in a 30-year conspiracy with Russian Federation to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton, but have complete confidence in an election supervisor who earlier this year was found by Florida courts to have illegally hidden and destroyed ballots. Mr Gillum trails Mr DeSantis by fewer than 50,000 votes.
