Broward County officials ordered to release uncounted ballot numbers

Broward County officials ordered to release uncounted ballot numbers

Nelson's campaign is suing to extend that deadline.

"I will not stand idly by while unethical liberals try to steal an election", Senate candidate Rick Scott said.

In court, the attorney for Broward county conceded that Broward County was under a legal obligation to produce the records, but claimed that Snipes was too busy counting ballots to comply with the law. But lawyers for Scott contended the information is already required to be collected under state law and should take minutes to provide.

As of Friday afternoon, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement said it had received no formal request for an investigation.

In the case of Florida still counting ballots more than 48 hours after polls closed, David Becker, the executive director for the Center for Election Innovation and Research, told NPR it is extremely common for a voting jurisdiction to be taking as long as Broward County is. The president is a supporter of Scott's bid to become a US senator.

"If you look at Broward and Palm Beach [counties] to a lesser extent ... they have had a terrible history", the president told reporters outside the White House before hopping on a plane for his trip to Paris.

The company also promised to "recommit" to improving workplace diversity through hiring, retention, and career advancement'. If bosses do not clamp down on drinking within their teams, "more onerous action will be imposed", the Google chief warned.

Florida has made a disturbing return to the election spotlight 18 years after the drama that launched George W Bush's presidency, as the state braces for race recounts amid accusations of corruption and voting discrepancies.

Scott holds a razor-thin lead over Nelson.

Elias said Scott's words are revealing. While the local races were all situated elsewhere on the ballot, only Senate and U.S. House of Representatives were located below the instructions, and in one district where there was no race for rep, the Senate race was the only one below the instructions. Meanwhile, Democratic incumbent Sen.

Under state law, all 67 counties must finish their count on Saturday by noon. "A judge has ruled that she illegally destroyed ballots. not in this case, but in 2016", Watters said.

But some Republicans, like Raschein, say they can't account for Scott's lack of apparent support in the Keys, noting, among other actions, his quick reaction in sending resources following September 2017's devastating Hurricane Irma.

Republicans offered no evidence that fraud was to blame for a diminishing lead in heavily Democratic Broward County in South Florida, where the still-unfinished counting of absentee and provisional ballots has narrowed Republican Rick Scott's statewide lead to less than one-half of a percentage point. "Since that time, it has become clear there are many more uncounted ballots than was originally reported", the campaign said.

At a makeshift news conference at the governor's mansion Thursday night, Scott said the slow count in Broward and Palm Beach meant Democrats were trying to "steal" the election.

"Tonight I am asking the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate this immediately and I am considering every single legal option available". "Nelson will prevail in a recount", Marc Elias, a lawyer for Nelson, told reporters on Friday.

"It is not appropriate for the governor of any state to suggest that he's going to use the power of the state to interject", Elias said. "Florida voted for Rick Scott!".

Scott's comments came as his campaign and the National Republican Senatorial Committee filed a lawsuit against Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes.

Lawyers for the Democrats are now descending on Broward County, Florida, over ballots that are still being tallied that could swing the recent midterm elections blue.
