Florida recount updates: Machines overheat, miss votes

Bill Nelson and Rick Scott

State elections officials said they had observers in Broward County and they hadn't found evidence of criminal wrongdoing.

Snipes was accused of "gross mismanagement" by the GOP amid the controversy over the vote recount in Florida's pivotal races for governor and Senate.

She says the machines "started overheating so as a result the tally types are not reconciling properly". In one major blunder it was recognized that a number of ballots had actually omitted an amendment - the Amendment 2 provision concerning medical marijuana.

(Florida does not have runoff elections for these races.) Though Scott claimed the unofficial victory, Nelson announced on Wednesday morning that his team was "proceeding to a recount". Republicans lead in both contests.

"When will Bill Nelson concede in Florida?' Trump wrote. 'The characters running Broward and Palm Beach voting will not be able to 'find" enough votes, too much spotlight on them now!'

There have been bumps as Florida undergoes recounts for both the governor and Senate races. The lawyers requested that the deputies be present when the ballots and voting machines are not being used and until the recount is over. But Broward's supervisor has said the county will meet Thursday's deadline. While the vote counting process in Broward and Palm Beach counties appeared to be unorganized leading up to the recount, there has been no evidence that ballots have been fraudulently counted. Bonfiglio's race is the last of four - including the contests for US Senate, governor and state agriculture commissioner - that would be subject to a recount. Now the state is having recounts in its U.S. Senate and governor races.

But as they evolved, USA elections still kept more space for raw politics than has survived in many other modern democracies - including Canada - and that appears to be a big part of the problem we're seeing now.

In her order Tuesday, Leon County Circuit Judge Karen Gievers said the Palm Beach County elections office is unique because of the age of its equipment, which can only conduct a recount of one race at a time. A Broward County judge challenged anyone who has evidence of fraud to file a report.

Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner ordered the recounts on November 10 and Florida state law requires that the results of the machine recounts be submitted by November 15, The Hill noted.

For example, in Republican-dominated Bay County, Elections Supervisor Mark Andersen accepted 147 ballots by email, even though that's barred by state law.

That assessment, which was first reported by the Miami Herald, jives with that given by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, which said Friday it has also seen no allegations of fraud.

Presidents have historically sought to rise above the heated partisan drama surrounding election irregularities.

So how does the recount work? The White House - in the form of Trump's Twitter feed and public comments - has also plunged into the fray.

For Trump, Florida is personal.

"It's been incredibly frustrating to watch".

"He's thrown around words like voter fraud, with no proof", Nelson told a news conference in Washington on Tuesday.

'It's just plain wrong. If the recount is done properly, Nelson has an "excellent chance" of being reelected, Schumer said.

President Donald Trump is going after Democratic Sen.

Recounts were triggered because vote totals in three of the state's main races were separated by less than half a percentage point.

The Florida governor's race between Democrat Andrew Gillum and Republican Ron DeSantis, though more contentious on the campaign trail, has not seen the same type of legal battle play out over the recount effort.

He said the judge's ruling surprised him, because the law already provides for the possibility that counties may not meet recount deadlines.

Nelson's lawsuit states the deadlines "impose a severe burden - disenfranchisement - on the right to vote of the voters who cast ballots that have thus far been improperly rejected and will only be counted accurately if both a machine and manual recount are complete".
