1. Yes!

And may I add:
We need every single vote counted so if you (or anyone you know) voted via provisional ballot because you forgot your ID, or went to the wrong polling place, you still have until 5 P.M. TODAY to bring your ID to your county supervisor of elections and make your ballot count.

2. Jeez. We need some mobile vote protection teams to go

out and get the missing absentee and provisional ballots signatures and ID's. Saying a prayer that enough volunteers are on this.

4. Yes think Nikki is going to win her race. Also 1 state senate and

2 state house races are also in this recount.

5. It was pointed out to me that the threshold for a recount is 0.25, not 0.50

So while Nelson has reached the threshold, at 0.47 Gillum still has a way to go.


Vote totals from the machine recounts are due by 3 p.m. The totals are compared with the previous unofficial results. If the result is the same but above 0.25 points, the count is official. If the margin is within 0.25 points, a manual recount is ordered for statewide races. Manual recounts involve canvassing boards counting each rejected vote by hand, determining “voter intent.” Overvotes and undervotes aren’t initially counted. An overvote is when a voter fills in more than one circle on the ballot for a given race; an undervote is when a voter leaves a race blank.

6. I believe it's 0.50 for a machine recount and 0.25 for a manual recount

Saturday, Nov. 10 – Unofficial results are certified to the state by noon. Detzner will order machine recounts for all statewide and multi-county races within 0.5 points.

Nov. 15 – Vote totals from the machine recounts are due by 3 p.m. The totals are compared with the previous unofficial results. If the result is the same but above 0.25 points, the count is official. If the margin is within 0.25 points, a manual recount is ordered for statewide races. Manual recounts involve canvassing boards counting each rejected vote by hand, determining “voter intent.” Overvotes and undervotes aren’t initially counted. An overvote is when a voter fills in more than one circle on the ballot for a given race; an undervote is when a voter leaves a race blank.


My understanding is that the machine recount will happen first, then if the totals are within 0.25 or less, a manual recount is ordered.
