Palm Beach Voting Machines Overheat, Forcing ANOTHER Recount

Palm Beach Voting Machines Overheat, Forcing ANOTHER Recount

Though Trump did not expand on his accusation, he later tweeted that the "characters" involved will not be able to "find" enough votes to swing the election in Nelson's favor.

Scott filed several lawsuits in response, including one accusing Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes of withholding information about the number of counted and uncounted ballots.

"With the (outdated) election equipment that we have, the potential of conducting all of these is impossible, it is impossible", said Supervisor of Elections for Palm Beach County Susan Bucher said. It was unclear what he was referring to.

What makes this especially heinous is that almost all election experts agree that Scott has his race won, yet Scott is still spinning conspiracy theories about supposed "election fraud" which has been repudiated by his own election officials and state police. Snipes has been re-elected since then, and is unapologetic about her record. Critics have suggested the slow pace of ballot-counting in Broward is suspicious.

He called for Scott to recuse himself from the recount, noting that Republican Brian Kemp quit his post as secretary of state in Georgia as his apparent victory in the governor's race is challenged.

"Given his efforts to undermine the votes of Floridians, this is the only way that we can ensure that the people's votes are protected", Nelson said in a video statement on Monday.

Ascendant Democratic leaders in the House have immediately vowed to hold investigations of Trump's business connections with the government he oversees, examine his tax returns that he has refused to release, and call on Trump officials to justify government policies they have adopted in the almost two years since Trump took office.

She said she had not spoken with Trump.

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

Public criticisms of Snipes grew intense last week when Gov. Rick Scott, who at first appeared to narrowly win his campaign for a U.S. Senate seat against incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson, Ron DeSantis and Andrew Gillum for Governor, and Matt Caldwell and Nikki Fried for Commissioner of Agriculture.

According to the AP, Palm Beach County is likely to miss the Thursday deadline for having all votes counted. Republicans are hoping to keep the law in place. The county was devastated by a Category 4 hurricane in October, and Scott ordered some special provisions for early voting there. The agency has not embarked on a probe, because the Department of State has not presented any allegations of fraud, a spokesman for the Department of Law Enforcement, Jeremy Burns, said Sunday, repeating what he had previously said.

State law requires a recount when candidates are within one-half point when all the votes are counted. "The truth is that Trump and [Republican Gov. Rick] Scott are lying - nobody's stealing the election".

Gillum says claims by Trump and Scott about electoral fraud in counties that were taking time counting ballots were equivalent to trying to disenfranchise voters. "If the lawyers are aware of it, they should swear out an affidavit, but everything the lawyers are saying out there in front of the elections office is being beamed all over the country".

"We have the same standards to tabulate all of the ballots", Sancho said. After Tuter told all sides to meet to discuss a compromise, they agreed to add three deputies to the elections office. He said the only goal of the request was to "protect the integrity of the vote".

Also on Monday, two voter-rights groups filed suit in federal court in Tallahassee. The president's son, Donald Trump Jr, used Twitter to share a headline that read: "Nearly 200,000 Florida Voters May Not Be Citizens". A massive Trump 2020 flag flew over the parking lot.

How do these recounts compare to others in state history?

He aggressively campaigned in the state, putting his finger on the scales of the Republican gubernatorial primary this summer by endorsing former Rep. Ron DeSantis for governor.

The governor's race also has tightened, with DeSantis, a staunch ally of Trump, ahead of Gillum by 0.41 percent.
