Thousands of provisional ballots could flip Florida races now too close to call

Source: USA Today

TALLAHASSEE — As several major Florida races face likely recounts, local election supervisors are working to verify thousands of votes that once again could flip high-profile contests that are too close to call.

Those provisional ballots, which can include absentee ballots without a signature or ballots cast in person by a voter whose eligibility is questioned, will be added Saturday to the first unofficial election results uploaded to the state.

That could mean 7,000 to 10,000 more votes added to the mix if history is any indication, according to election results from 2014 and 2016.

In 2014, for example, 7,199 provisional ballots were counted statewide. In 2016, there were 10,998, according to the Secretary of State’s Office. This midterm election's turnout of 62 percent, or more than 8.1 million ballots cast, fell between those two elections.

2. Used to. This time it's hard to tell

All those expats hearing for two years what a total loser Trump is, I'm sure that has them shaken to the core.

They were so down and out a couple days ago. Feeling a little more alive the last 24 hours.

https://floridaelectionwatch.gov/FederalOffices/USSenator
Scott leads with 50.09%. Nelson has 49.91%. 50.09 - 49.91 = 0.18% difference.

Both are within the recount range.

8. I just went over to your link

If all the people who voted with independent and other parties had voted Democrat Gillum would be the winner.

13. What makes you think they ever would?

Or is there something we should have done?

Nobody owes us their vote. We earn them and there will always be the cranks and the gullible who vote for their own reasons. I don't count those chickens, hatched or otherwise.
