Who won these races? Lawyers sue over ballot counting

Marco Rubio: Democrats Are Trying to Steal Florida Senate Race by Counting All the Votes

As the Chairman of the political law practice Perkins Coie, Elias represents almost all of the Democratic senators, according to RollCall, and his firm also represents the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, and the Democratic Governors' Association as a whole. He noted that the law designates untrained local elections workers the responsibility of reviewing voters' signatures, none of whom are qualified to do so, Elias says.

And although Republicans gained in the Senate, by week's end the president was facing criticism over his new pick to lead the Department of Justice and rising vote tallies for Democrats in races that have been too close to call. "This morning we spoke with the Department of State and they indicated that at this time they had no allegations of fraud".

Both Scott and Republican Sen.

In Florida, an automatic recount will be triggered if the difference in vote totals between two candidates is 0.5 percent or less.

Scott's campaign manager Jackie Schutz Zeckman shot back: "They aim to disenfranchise law abiding Florida voters by producing ballots out of thin air until they have enough to win".

However, the Associated Press is reporting that Mr DeSantis has won the election.

During the 200 presidential election, Democratic candidate Al Gore sought a hand count of ballots in several Florida counties, including Broward County.

A neighbor of Long's also told ABC News that Long suffered from PTSD, and that they had "no idea what he was doing with a gun". When deputies were called to his house earlier this year, officers chose to have a mental health professional evaluate Long.

Mr Elias also pledged legal action if the campaign found that rejected ballots due to signature mismatches were disproportionately hurting minority voters. Snipes was accused of destroying the physical ballots while saving digital copies as the lawsuit was pending - a violation of a federal statute requiring congressional ballots be saved for 22 months after an election.

The hiring came after Scott derided Nelson for hiring Elias as "one of Hillary Clinton's lawyers from D.C".

Supervisors then have until the 15th to complete that process and turn in the second unofficial results.

"The lack of transparency raises substantial concerns about the validity of the election process", said the lawsuit filed in Broward County.

Scott, a Republican, is running for U.S. Senate and held a 0.21 percentage lead over Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson on Thursday afternoon. He said officials performing the count do not have the necessary training to match signatures, and that similar laws in other states have been thrown out.

Voting in the 2018 General Election concluded November 6, 2018.

Not only does it seem like this led to confusion, this exact problem was anticipated by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission more than a decade ago. "Florida voted for Rick Scott!".

Henderson back as Liverpool trio passed fit for Fulham
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 26 Premier League home games, their longest such run since August 2009 (31 games). First and foremost, we really have to admit to ourselves a lot of things are better than previous year .

A judge is also siding with Scott in his complaints against West Palm Beach County, saying the supervisor of elections need to submit "overvoted" and "undervoted" absentee ballots to the canvassing board before they're counted. "Nelson is going to be determined to be the victor and he's going to return to the United States Senate", Elias insisted during a Thursday morning conference call with reporters. With a U.S. Senate race on the line, one might think this deserves a somewhat believable explanation.

The two southern states are in the spotlight after Tuesday's closely watched midterm elections, in which Democrats reclaimed the House of Representatives from President Donald Trump's Republicans and flipped a number of governorships.

Rancor was spilling into governors' races, where Andrew Gillum in Florida and Stacey Abrams in Georgia were aiming to become the states' first African-American leaders, but the contests were tilting in favor of their Republican rivals.

Mr Gillum conceded, and many news organisations called the race for Mr DeSantis. If the margin is within 0.25%, as it stood Thursday in the Senate race, a hand recount - slower and more thorough than by machine - is ordered.

Both Florida and Georgia were preparing for ballot recounts on Friday, as contentious races for the US Senate and state governorships descended into controversy amid Republicans' accusations of Democratic vote tampering, and counter-questions about potentially confusing ballot papers.

As Florida heads towards a machine recount for the Senate and gubernatorial races, prominent Republicans are alleging voter fraud by Democrats trying to create new votes for their candidates.
