Florida Canvassing Board Quietly Signs Off On 2004 Voting Results

POSTED: 10:13 pm EST November 14, 2004

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- This time around for Florida election officials, there were no cameras, few questions and a clear decision.

Unlike four years ago, when scores of TV trucks and hundreds of reporters camped outside the Capitol in Tallahassee, the state canvassing board quietly certified the results of the November second general election. President Bush captured the state's 27 electoral votes by a comfortable margin.

Secretary of State Glenda Hood breathed a sigh of relief, saying, "I think everyone is glad the election has come and gone."

When the canvassing board met in 2000, then-Secretary of State Katherine Harris prematurely declared Bush the winner. But it was a nearly a month later before the U-S Supreme Court certified Bush's victory over Democrat Al Gore in Florida to finally settle the outcome after weeks of recounts and legal wrangling.
