Florida Still Counting Election Votes

Florida once again has a race on its hands that is too close to call.

Even though Florida's 29 electoral votes won't make a difference in the outcome of the Presidential election, Florida once again has a race on its hands that is too close to call.

President Barack Obama held a razor-thin thin edge over Gov. Mitt Romney, even as 200,000 votes were left to be counted in Florida. Obama won enough battleground states to win re-election even if he doesn't win Florida.

All precincts have reported results, but provisional and absentee ballots still needed to be counted. That includes 9,000 ballots that were still being counted Wednesday in Pinellas County. 

It isn't yet clear when a winner in Florida's Presidential race may be declared. Obama held a 0.58% lead on Wednesday afternoon. If the margin falls below 0.50%, that would trigger an automatic recount.

Ditto. And scrape the Romney bumper stickers off your cars, too.

I've noticed that the other Republicans try to stay at arm's length away from Scott--for good reason. The sooner Scott is gone, the better.

It should have been easy enough to go into the board of elections and check to make sure you were registered, don't you think?

FL is messed up because Gov Scott crammed a FEDERAL election full of STATE proposals. Depending on the county, the ballot was from 6-10 pages on both sides. Workers were trying to copy those ballots and some of them got messed up, not by eliminating candidates, but by limiting Prosposal 5. All those pages had to be counted by the machines and some pages got ruined and then workers had to .......by hand.......move all that information onto new ballots so they could by counted by machine again. And who takes the heat for this huge mess? The workers, of course. Not Scott who caused this mess to start with.
