  • They're Not Stealing It Rick Scott NRSC Sue Democratic Counties For Vote Count Irregularities In Florida Senate Race

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

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is not actively investigating any matters related to Tuesday's election, a department spokesperson said Friday, after it was informed by the Florida Department of State that there have been no allegations of criminal activity. She ordered Snipes to turn over the number of all ballots cast in the midterm election, including absentee, early voting and those cast on Election Day.

Following Elias' call with reporters, the Scott campaign - which filed a lawsuit against Broward and Palm Beach counties over public records he claimed weren't provided to his campaign - shot back, calling today's legal filing by the Nelson campaign "desperate".

"Election officials are literally just counting the ballots".

The gap between Mr Scott - the outgoing governor of Florida - and incumbent Democratic Senator Nelson has narrowed to 0.2% as of Friday as Broward County votes are counted.

Mr DeSantis is now leading by 36,000 votes.

"We know in Palm Beach County there are in excess of 10,000 that are going to be reviewed as part of the canvas process because they have stray marks or other write-ins that kept them from being properly scanned and counted", Elias said. Scott's election night 56,000 victory over Nelson shrank to just over 17,000 votes -- within the.25 percent margin that sparks a manual recount -- by Thursday afternoon. Trump tweets: "Law Enforcement is looking into another big corruption scandal having to do with Election Fraud in #Broward and Palm Beach".

Local Republican groups in Arizona are challenging in court efforts by two counties to resolve issues with signatures on mail-in ballots.

That meant there was no candidate opposite Bush, but to the right of Gore was the ultra-conservative Reform Party candidate Pat Buchanan, who got 3,407 votes in the county - many of them probably intended for Gore, analysts said.

"The good news is that since the 2000 election, the process has improved both in terms of how people vote in Florida and the designation of a recount", he said.

"Some believe that this is simply rank incompetence", Scott said.

Scott alleges that the supervisors have violated federal and state laws by failing to provide information to officials. The race remains too close to call, with Nelson narrowly trailing Scott.

Various political figures beyond Scott have leveled charges against Snipes for her alleged actions.

For demanding that Broward adhere to state law, Rubio was accused of to trying to stop some votes from being counted.

He has previously said recounts rarely change the results of the election.

Kemp holds about a 63,000 vote lead, with 50.3 percent of nearly 4 million votes.

"It has become clear there are many more uncounted ballots than was originally reported", his campaign said in a statement, noting they are ready for a state-mandated recount.

7News cameras captured the chaotic scene after supporters of DeSantis' Democratic opponent, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, showed up in front of the Lauderhill building to demand that every ballot is counted.
