Elections experts say process working amid furor

President Trump speaks to reporters at the White House on Friday. The president has joined Florida Gov. Rick Scott in amplifying claims of voter fraud in the state's Senate race without evidence

Scott - the Republican gubernatorial incumbent narrowly leading in the state's race for a U.S. Senate seat - and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) alleged that Broward election officials were hiding critical information about the number of votes cast and counted.

The insults continue to be traded on social media.

"If you look at Broward and Palm Beach [counties] to a lesser extent, they have had a terrible history", Trump said.

Florida counties have until noon Saturday to submit unofficial election results to the Department of State.

That effort could go into overdrive this weekend if the state orders a widely anticipated recount. These numbers will be double checked with the machine recount later this week. The results of that recount would determine whether a manual recount of over- and undervotes is necessary. The difference, in the Senate race, amounts to over 26,000 votes.

"We traveled all across this state in the primary and the general process".

"This is voter fraud, and we're not going to take it anymore", yelled a protester.

Broward County traditionally exhibits a high rate of "undervoting" in its elections, in which many voters ignore one or more contests on the ballot. In addition, he said she was unsupervised when processing absentee ballots. But that's to be expected given how many more people live in Jacksonville.

Yet when lawyers representing the Florida Democratic Party sought to intervene in the case on Friday, Scott's campaign attorneys opposed the move.

Appeals court rules against Trump DACA phaseout
Trump's attempt to rescind the program was also initially blocked by judges from lower courts in Washington D.C. and NY . The administration in February unsuccessfully appealed Judge Alsup's ruling to the Supreme Court.

Thursday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin alerted listeners to the continued ballot-counting in Florida, which Florida Sen.

"I have a right to vote for whoever I want to vote for", said Gillum supporter Jonie Jones. Under Georgia law if that share falls below 50 percent it would trigger a run-off vote in December, the New York Times reported.

"It should be there, it should not slow down the proceedings, it should be a matter of record at this point", Phillips said in her ruling.

"We are available to respond to any challenges that may be made, but I have been very pleased with the process and this post-election", said Morton, adding that she's satisfied with how Hogan's office has handled everything as well.

Saturday's developments return Florida to the center of a major political drama 18 years after an infamous presidential recount left control of the White House undecided for more than a month.

Since Tuesday's election, "it has become clear there are many more uncounted ballots than was originally reported", Gillum spokeswoman Johanna Cervone said, amid reports that ballots had yet to be counted in Democrat-leaning Broward County. "What does that say about our democracy?" "Given the length of time it has taken her office to count votes and the history of Snipes' past violations, we have concerns the law is not being followed". She said the canvassing board would finish tabulating about 250 provisional ballots on Friday and had 10 days from Election Day to count the military votes. Every person in Florida knows exactly what is happening.

In his lawsuit, Caldwell asks the court in Broward County to determine whether that county's election supervisor, "illegally included ballots after polls closed" November 6.

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