Florida Law Enforcement: We Have No Voter Fraud Allegations To Investigate

Scott also filed a lawsuit against Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes on Thursday evening, alleging that her office is hiding information about the number of ballots left to be counted. "He is desperately trying to hold on to something that no longer exists".

The latest vote totals from the state of Florida show three races are now headed for a mandatory recount, with the vote margin in the U.S. Senate race now down to only.18 percent.

But Scott was a good candidate and Nelson wasn't.

She ordered Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes to allow for the "immediate inspection" and "photocopying" of the requested records no later than 7:00 p.m. Friday. "And the fact that she is not communicating to the public or to the campaigns.is suspicious, because if you don't know the tabulation, then anything can happen underneath", Watters said.

According to the Broward County Supervisor of Elections website, 695,799 ballots were cast.

Similar action has been taken in other states with signature match laws, most notably Georgia.

Nearly two days after polls closed, Snipes is refusing to disclose the number of county ballots that still need to be counted.

A spokeswoman says state law enforcement officials in Florida have not launched any elections-fraud allegations.

That's where votes are being tallied in the U.S. Senate race between Scott and incumbent Sen. 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".

According to the Miami Herald, if the margin of victory in a Florida race is 0.5 percent or less, a electronic recount of ballots must be carried out (unless the loser refuses).

"I will not sit idly by while unethical liberals try to steal this election", Mr Scott said.

Two days after the United States mid-term elections, Florida's senate race remains unresolved, along with several others across the country.

Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson has pushed for a recount given that he trails Scott by such a slim margin.

Now a judge has agreed that Broward has violated the law and given them a few hours to rectify this, exactly as Rubio, Rick Scott, and the NRSC claimed. Nelson's lawyer called that race a "jump ball".

The state's elections unexpectedly devolved into calamity Thursday thanks largely to thousands of votes belatedly trickling out of heavily Democratic South Florida.

He said the officials are not ensuring a fair and transparent election process.

Gillum's campaign said it's monitoring the situation with an elections lawyer and preparing for a possible state-mandated recount.

Elias said it was "not appropriate" for a governor to suggest he was going to "interject his law enforcement authority to prevent the counting of ballots that have been legally cast".

"Now they "found" many votes and he is only up 15,000 votes".

Two Democratic-leaning counties, Broward County and Palm Beach County, haven't completed counting mail-in ballots - and one of them hasn't finished counting early ballots, either.

- Florida is once again at the center of election controversy, but this year there are no hanging chads or butterfly ballots like in 2000.

"The goal here is to see that all the votes in Florida are counted and counted accurately", McLaughlin said. A hearing on that case was set for Friday afternoon.

On Tuesday night, Mr Scott announced his victory - and was even congratulated via phone by President Donald Trump - but Mr Nelson did not make a concession speech at the time.

In a statement Thursday, Gillum's campaign says it underestimated the ballots that still needed to be counted when he conceded.

The fact that a Black woman was presiding over the vote counting process in the pivotal Broward County likely only compounded the apparent anger Republicans were expressing over the elections they thought they won Tuesday night.
