The Dems must feel confident they’ve manufactured plenty enough votes in the meantime to emerge victorious.

There is no way in hell that punk got more votes than colonel West. If he did, this country is in even more trouble than most of us think.

But will this continue?

The other story said a “judge” - appointed by which party? - denied West’s case.

The judge left it up the Canvassing Board because he did not have the authority to demand a recount beyond the requirements of State law.

It may put West in the lead.

It may put it within .5% which would trigger and election wide recount.

Go Wast go!

Hoping some indictments of the fraud come out as well. One election like this could result in much needed security for our elections.

Has anyone posted the totals from the military and overseas ballots? Some had to be hand transferred in order to be counted by machine. I thought they were to be counted at this session.

When will the totals be matched to the number of voters who signed the log books? This is not close to being over!

Murphy plans to fight it. With a process as obviously snarfled [in lieu of a more descriptive term], a recount should be a no-brainer.

When you read that huge total think total pages counted and a two page ballot. (We had 10 Constitutional amendments and about a total 6 foot ballot this time.) Voters are 1/2 the total. 70% of eligible voters is in line with national results.

That came from a mis-read of an admittedly confusing report. The Florida ballot was two two-sided pages due to so many Constitutional amendments up for consideration. 70% turnout times two sheets each resulted in the 140% figure. Of all the things going wrong in St Lucie County, that's not one of them.

That was misleading. The voters were issued a two-page ballot and the county reported the number of pages voted (which was slightly less than 2 pgs/voter, as a few voters only voted one page and overlooked the other).

Actual voter turnout was more like 70% -- which is still suspiciously high for the county.

Do not celebrate prematurely. One must be cynical, the left would not have voted for it unless they already did a recount sub rosa and a fix.Too much time has gone by , to really guarantee that the ballots were kept securely.

I hope I am wrong, but I do not trust the left. They are fascists now, and few people understand what that means in terms of electoral process. It simply means we have no chance of free and fair elections, the ends justify the means.This has been true all across the country, some jurisdictions have had 148% voter turnout, and there is nary a whimper, its being shrugged off.

We now live in an estate of fascism with pockets of freedom here and there.

Of course this does nothing to check how many of those that voted were actually citizens.

Your 148% need to be divided roughly in half. See the explanation up thread.

For what it’s worth:

http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/news/state-regional-govt-politics/murphy-west-recount-debated-in-st-lucie-as-electio/nS8Xp/

St. Lucie will recount early votes in Murphy-West race

snip
During Friday night’s meeting, elections staffers wheeled out boxes containing 306 ballots that had not been counted. The ballots were ones in which voters marked at least one write-in candidates and had been segregated from the other ballots.

Meanwhile, West and Murphy broke even in the count of overseas ballots by canvassing boards of all three counties Friday night.

West won 34 overseas votes to Murphy’s 29 in Palm Beach County, three to Murphy’s five in Martin and three to Murphy’s six in St. Lucie.

After their counts of overseas ballots Friday, the Palm Beach and Martin canvassing boards both certified their final votes to the state.

It hasn't been published. But I'll hazard a guess...

Virtually none.

True.
And only one (1) single precinct in St Lucie County was able to mathematically “deal with” the state wide two page ballot.

Only one lone precinct in that entire County reported in at a believable 69% turnout( the next level was 118%) of eligible registered voters, as having voted.

So- is the Supervisor of Elections merely an incompetent jerk(ess), or is she guilty of more serious crimes?

It's either only one or the other.

The recount is taking place in St Lucie County and has nothing to do with the results in the other counties.
