Florida May Have Election Results By Noon Saturday [View all]

Tallahassee, Florida - Three days after the election, Florida still waited for a final tally in the presidential race as Palm Beach County worked to finish counting its absentee ballots.

State election officials said they expected Palm Beach to wrap up their work on Friday.

All counties must report their voting results to the state by noon Saturday so Floridians -- and the nation -- will definitely know then who won Florida and if a recount is necessary.

On Friday afternoon, President Obama led Mitt Romney by about 60,000 votes out of 8.4 million cast in Florida. That's outside the one-half of one percent margin that would trigger a recount, so it looks as though Florida will avoid a recount and President Obama will win Florida.
