Broward County Fails to Submit Dems' Bad News in Time, Nullifying Recount

It doesn't matter that U.S. Senator Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) needs a miracle to overcome Rick Scott's margin of victory or that Republican Ron DeSantis continues to lead Democrat Andrew Gillum by tens of thousands of votes.

Despite completing the machine recount in time, the office of embattled Broward County elections supervisor Brenda Snipes missed the deadline for submitting its new results by just a few minutes Thursday, which happened to give both Republican candidates Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis even larger vote margins over their Democratic opponents.

"With just 15 minutes to go before Thursday’s deadline, Broward County finally finished recounting every vote," the Miami Herald reports. "At least, that’s what officials told reporters and the canvassing board at 2:45 p.m. In a surprise announcement at nearly 6 p.m., Broward’s director of elections planning, Joseph D’Alessandro, told the canvassing board the county actually turned in results to the state two minutes late. They won’t count officially."

"Basically I just worked my ass off for nothing," D’Alessandro said. "What caused it was my unfamiliarity with their website."

Since the office failed to submit them in time, the original results will stand.


The updated figures would've shown Republicans Scott and DeSantis picking up more than 700 votes (out of roughly 1,000,000 cast) in Broward County.

The discrepancy occurred because of "a commingling of ballots," conceded D'Alessandro, who added the Broward County Supervisor of Elections did not correctly handle those ballots.
