Almost 1K ballots found in Broward elections warehouse

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.

The Allen West recount continues (an on the ground report)



BY COACH COLLINS, ON NOVEMBER 17TH, 2012
By Suzanne Eovaldi, staff writer



A judge mumbled his way through his no go decision, a county attorney admitted the canvassing board violated Florida’s sunshine laws, and the RPOF remained in transit from Tallahassee, but Colonel Allen West is still ALL IN.  Election Supervisor Gertrude Walker went to the hospital  as a 2-1 decision near midnight on Friday by the canvassing board determined a re-tabulation of ALL early votes  has begun at 9 a.m. this morning.

  Going in “for tests,” Walker may not be able to show up or have another presser to answer bourgeoning questions of what she knew and when did she know it about alleged discrepancies that could prevent Colonel West from meeting the automatic trigger of .5% for an automatic recount of ALL votes!

All week long, Florida citizens gathered in front of her office.  A young man shouting into a white bullhorn led marching in military cadence to “What Do We Want?”  “Recount now,” they shouted back.

“Beaver” from Ft. Lauderdale told me their flags are being flown upside down – an international maritime distress symbol.  “If a ship was in distress, her flag was flown upside down. . .this country is in distress,” he added.

 “When does 100% become 140%. . .how does that work?” one protestor asked.  Another woman told me she turned over to the West team evidence of “stick ‘em notes (allegedly) pasted on ballots in a town south of here that said “Ignore Allen West!”  Rumors abound and with Walker out of commission, we can’t verify whether or not Nancy Pelosi called her (allegedly) to say, “Don’t Let Them Win!”

A beautiful tall black poodle named Jessie marched with her owner who told me, “We’re sending out a message to the country from Palm Beach Gardens.”

  Now The Blaze.com is reporting on the supervisor’s overt black activism. “Gertrude Walker was among very few public officials to voice support for fellow black Miriam Oliphant, a disgraced Broward County Supervisor of Elections fired for incompetence.”

The League of Women Voters, Head Start, and a Dr. Martin Luther King Committee have had Walker’s backing.  In office since 1980, she reportedly collects a DROP (deferred retirement option plan) that, along with her salary could add up to $17,000 month courtesy of local taxpayers.  Her $110,000 salary continues because she was re-elected unopposed.  She denied having a conflict of interest even though she is now supervising the re-count of ballot upon which she herself appeared, all because of its challenged votes!  (Note: The additional DROP income may or may not be exact but getting reality out of what is going on is a challenge.)  

Trembling St. Lucie County Attorney Dan McIntyre looked bad when he told me, “The public hearing was not advertised. . .Improper notice. . .no 24 hour notice (was given)” when the Board met to decide on the earlier re-count.  His hands shook as he read case law to the judge.  “Now we are getting sued by both sides.”

An urgent midnight call by a St. Lucie County GOP commenter called for volunteers to show up  9 a.m. for the new recount of ALL early votes at the Orange Blossom Mall on Okeechobee Rd,-Rt. 70 east off of I 95.  Listen for the roars of the marchers.  Call Brittany 970-379-2919 or Nina 772-834-2332 says this post.  A new tabulation of all eight early voting days starts now unless Patrick Murphy’s lawyers can block it!

Judge refuses to halt early vote recount in St. Lucie County

FORT PIERCE — Circuit Court Judge Larry Schack has denied a motion by Democrat Patrick Murphy to halt the recount of early votes in St. Lucie County.

About 4:15 p.m., the judge made his ruling, saying if Murphy loses because of the recount, he still can contest the results of the election.

Meanwhile, workers in the Supervisor of Elections office on Okeechobee Road continued recounting the early votes for the tight District 18 congressional race.

Early Saturday morning, the Murphy campaign team announced they had filed an preliminary injunction to halt the recount, saying it was not legal.

Schack began the hearing in the early afternoon. The Murphy team won the first round, when Schack ruled against the county's request to quash Murphy's subpoena of Canvassing Board member Judge Kathryn Nelson. Nelson voted against recounting all eight days of early ballots Friday night, but was outvoted by the other two board members.

"Judge Nelson said and believed that, to her knowledge, no evidence had been presented for errors that would allow a recount under state law," Murphy attorney Sean Domnick told Schacht.

As the clock neared 3:30 p.m., the court hearing continued. Republican Allen West lawyer Chris Winkelman argued the Canvassing Board was within its rights to order a recount.

The recount began shortly after 11 a.m. in the race that has Murphy leading Republican Allen West.

Before the recount started, Murphy lawyer Liz Howard publicly informed the county Canvassing Board the had campaign filed for a preliminary injunction to prevent the recount from going forward.

However, Assistant County Attorney Heather Young said she had not yet received any court orders and the recount of early voting ballots commenced.

Earlier in the morning, Canvassing Board member Tod Mowery addressed a crowd gathered behind a barrier of orange traffic cones that separated observers from machines and election workers. About 100 people were at the elections office this morning for the 9 a.m. recount.

Mowery confirmed that 306 uncounted ballots had been "noted" by state Division of Elections.

He later explained the 306 ballots that had not yet been counted were ballots that contained one or more write-in choices. All these ballots were cast on Nov. 1-3, the days which had been recounted last Sunday.

A write-in vote in any race caused the vote tabulating machines to reject the ballots, he said.

Regardless of what happens Saturday, the Fort Pierce mayoral race should not be effected. Mowery said all ballots had been recounted in that close race, which Linda Hudson won over Vince Gaskin.

Mowery said the presence of law officers was because there were open ballots in the room that needed protected.

In addition to observers from both Murphy and West campaigns, there also was a contingent from the U.S. House Administrative Committee. One of those observers, Mark Braden, said they had been called to Fort Pierce by the West campaign.

Braden said the District 18 contest was one of about a half-dozen races nationwide to which committee observers had been called. He was not able to immediately recall the others.

In a prepared statement issued this morning, West for Congress campaign manager Tim Edson said, "In a last-ditch effort to suppress the vote, Murphy's lawyers submitted sloppy and incomplete papers to the Court this morning to try to strong-arm the judge into preventing today's retabulation already underway.

"The Murphy team's motion is procedurally and substantively lacking. With every action attempted, Murphy demonstrates a complete lack of respect and utter disregard for the voters of St. Lucie County."

The decision to recount the ballots came after a state elections auditor on Friday found the box of 306 early ballots that never were counted.

David Drury, head of the Division of Elections Bureau of Voting Systems Certifications on hand for the audit, made a "personal" recommendation the St. Lucie County Canvassing Board rerun ballots from five early voting days that hadn't been counted. The board decided instead to count all eight days, which includes three days that had been recounted last Sunday.

The board has a tight window to finish the recount as it has to finalize results to send to the state by noon Sunday. The state certifies all races Tuesday.

On Friday, St. Lucie County Judge Dan Vaughn denied West's motion to order a recount of all 37,379 early ballots. Vaughn ruled he didn't have authority to call for a recount, but said his decision didn't "bind the canvassing board from doing what they think is appropriate in these circumstances."

A subsequent seven-hour canvassing board meeting Friday, however, resulted in the board deciding to recount all of the ballots, despite questions about their legal authority to do so.

Lawyers for Murphy said if the canvassing board decides to recount all early votes Friday afternoon, they would be breaking the law. They said statutes only lets canvassing boards retabulate the precincts and days that have specific problems, not a blanket recounting of votes.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available

West has conceded that he has been defeated - and has dropped all legal challenges.
