Florida Recounts in Question as Multiple Counties Report Issues

HeadlineNov 15, 2018

In Florida, recounts of the tight Senate and gubernatorial races are scheduled to end today, as multiple counties have reported a range of issues during the machine recount process. Palm Beach County has asked for an extension for providing the final recount tally after machines overheated, causing discrepancies in the results. In heavily Republican Bay County, votes submitted by fax or email were reportedly counted, even though such ballots are not legally allowed. Democratic incumbent Senator Bill Nelson has filed several lawsuits, including a motion to extend the the deadline for the machine recount. Meanwhile, Florida’s governor and Republican Senate candidate Rick Scott traveled to Washington, D.C., to attend freshman senator orientation Wednesday, even though the race has not yet been called.
