Protesters gather outside Broward Elections HQ as possible recount looms

US mid-terms 2018: Florida senate race recount triggered

Bill Nelson Florida 'Emergency Recount Fund' to pay for legal action

Nelson's campaign asserted that Scott was overstepping his bounds. During a press conference Thursday night, Scott said, "The people of Florida deserve fairness and transparency, and the supervisors are failing to give it to us. Florida voted for Rick Scott!".

Unofficial results show Gillum trailing Ron DeSantis, a Trump-endorsed Republican, by just 36,165 votes, or 0.44 percentage points.

In Florida, an automatic recount will be triggered if the difference in vote totals between two candidates is 0.5 percent or less. A manual recount must be finished by Sunday, Nov. 18, and could start as early as Sunday. "'The Broward Effect.' How come they never find Republican votes?" he wrote.

"What's going on in Florida is a disgrace". The Florida Secretary of State has not ordered a recount, and his office said that would not happen until canvassing boards return their unofficial returns on November 10.

FDLE spokeswoman Jessica Cary said the agency will investigate if the Secretary of State's Office refers allegations.

"Election officials are literally just counting the ballots".

He said that if Scott follows through on his "veiled threat" of blocking the ongoing count of "ballots that have been lawfully cast", he would quickly go to court. This is not a third world dictatorship.

Under state law, all 67 counties must finish their count on Saturday by noon. Broward and Palm Beach counties are Democratic strongholds, and Snipes and Bucher are Democrats. Those included instances where a voter might have over-voted, trying to cross out a choice and indicating a preferred one with an arrow. The editorial board of Florida's Sun Sentinel on Friday said Snipes had lost "credibility" and should be replaced by Broward County.

"Don't steal our election!" they shouted in chants alternated with songs including "The Star Spangled Banner" and reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance.

Scott indicated Thursday that he was calling for an investigation into the Broward County Board of Elections, but the Florida Department of Law Enforcement told National Review on Friday that the governor has not formally ordered an investigation. Among other things, a 2016 lawsuit by Tim Canova, a challenger to Democratic Rep. Then, Snipes's office dropped 2,400 blank absentee ballots for votersoff at the post office on a Saturday before the election, after mail carriers were already gone for the day. Eventually a judge ruled that the law had been violated. "We're talking about an election of 8.5 million votes". Both the Senate and gubernatorial races, where Republicans hold a razor-thin lead, are now heading for a recount. Under Florida law, a recount is mandatory if the winning candidate's margin is less than 0.5 percentage points.

"If you look at Broward and Palm Beach [counties] to a lesser extent ... they have had a disgusting history", the president told reporters outside the White House before hopping on a plane for his trip to Paris. She also did not know how many provisional, military and mismarked ballots need to be counted. In 2006, her office was still counting ballots long after other counties had submitted their results, due to the possibility that ballots were still left in the machines. "And that's why, this woman, no one has faith in her at all".
