The St. Lucie County Canvassing Board has ordered the retabulation of all early votes in the highly contested congressional race between Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) and Democrat Patrick Murphy, according to Jeffrey Scott Shapiro, a volunteer lawyer for the West campaign. The board voted 2-1 in favor of recounting the votes.
‚ÄúThis retabulation of all early votes as the Supervisor of Elections originally planned is a victory for democracy,‚ÄĚ Shapiro told TheBlaze. ‚ÄúThis restores some level of trust and public confidence in the system‚Ä¶it was the right thing to do.‚ÄĚ
Starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday, election officials will retabulate a total of 33,379 ballots from all eight days of early voting in St. Lucie County, he explained.
West needs to gain just 249 votes from those ballots to trigger a statutory recount under state law, Shapiro said.
I posted this last night. I think ALL votes should be recounted WITHOUT the illegals who voted, the illegal votes of those who were bussed in by the hundreds by the dems, without the dead people votes, and without the votes by the dogs (dead or alive). Cat votes are ok because they are smart enough to vote against obama.
