LAUDERHILL, Fla. (WSVN) -- Nearly a thousand ballots that were not included in Florida's final count have been found in a warehouse in Broward County.
Tuesday morning and into the night, there was a buzz of activity at the Voting Equipment Center in Lauderhill, a week after the general election. There was a recount going on for two commission seats that were too close to call, one in Hallandale Beach and another in Dania Beach. Workers had to count those votes manually.
Also keeping elections officials busy is the fact that 963 filled ballots were found in a warehouse. The supervisor of elections, Dr. Brenda Snipes, said this happens all the time, especially when dealing with paper ballots. Her department is not the only one to have seen more ballots added to the final number after the election, and they have until Nov. 18 to certify all the votes.
Snipes noted that it is a routine thing to look for these kind of mishaps after election night and she is just glad that they are now being tallied into that final count.
Last Tuesday, close to 800,000 people voted in Broward County, some waited in lines for four to five and sometimes six hours. Many have said the news of these ballots add to their uneasiness about how the election was run. Florida was the last state to officially announce its election results, long after President Obama was officially announced as re-elected.
Snipes said there is no reason for alarm. "I've run several elections here, and this election was run no different than any other," she said. "I think the difference with this election is that there was a close race between the two presidential candidates, and there was pressure put on everyone, including our office, to get all of the votes, count, count, count, so you don't have an opportunity to check every box that comes back because you got to get what you got in hand and get it out of there, so if the voters would rather that we kind of sit back and relax and then clean up and find ballots. Then I think they would really be very upset."
She said that further complicating this election was a very long ballot filled with proposed amendments. Snipes has promised that her department will meet their deadline by Sunday.
And, of course, on net such “found” ballots ALWAYS favor the Dems.
I hate to agree, but I think you’re right.
These f*c&in& savages are not even civilized to respect the voting process.
We are left, actually with only one alternative: Force.
so they had the votes waiting in case FL did not go their way as usual, now they saw they got enough corruption they forgot the votes were there.
To think if we had a GOP with balls then this could have been stoped a long time ago
Yet again the GOP reacts whilst the loons on the left proact
always corruption in the Dem county,
Those 3 parts of FL should join their brethen up north seeing as it;s all third wolrd illegals and snow birds from up there
W? T? F?
Anyone still think that 0 was elected fairly without cheating?
heard Hannity earlier say that we lost , we have to dust off and we have other battles,
HUH, He and his ilk are part of the problem, they can;t get any balls to take the public.
We had a massive corrupt election, we had WI, FL, VA, OH where results do not add up at all and just now the RNC states they demand the votes to be counted.
Hell we want more thna that
A veteran is being pissed all over by the elft and our cowardly side
I smell a RAT, a DummyRAT conniver.
If Dr. Brenda Snipes or whoever is behind this fraudulent voting count, a huge fine plus 8 years prison.
this bag and I guarantee others were their emergency back up votes.
Just in case their corruption did not take them over the edge they woudl have pulled these bags and said “oh look we have other votes to count”
How many other bags have they forgot about to take after this rigged election ?
Now where the hell is the GOP, Romney, hey they forced him on us fought like mad Newt and now disappear whilst a veteran gets pissed all over
Since the FEC won’t do anything, it’s time to hold governors and local officials accountable. Sherrif’s should start arresting people.
I know, pipe dream.
Al Sharpton is looking old.
these votes and others need to be re-counted in WI, FL,OH, VA and then crossed checked with the registration rolls.
They were giving out ballots to anyone in line and never checking ID and thta is against state law.
Thye forgot about this bag but how many other bags did they have in reserve in case their fraud did not give thme the state?
He’s only 58.
Like BJ Clinton, constant lying takes its physical toll.
where on earth ois our Gov and AG?
Where is the GOP?
This election was such a fraud and instead we get our side saying lets reach out and idiots like Hannity saying we lost we move on.
B/S we lost in a corrupt election but we did not lose if the votes were fair.
Obama would be looking to get his family out of there and the Dems would be now thinking of other ways ot take elections
Soros said some time ago they will concentrate on those counties and those who are in charge of the count elections so when the election comes in they will manufacture the votes to take the election
Only in third world countries.
