West gained some votes in the partial recount lending validity to the concern about the cards not uploading correctly. Now will they decide that maybe just maybe the cards screwed up again in the other uploads and should provide for a total recount.
From a just released article:
A partial recount on Sunday of early ballots from St. Lucie County narrowed Democrat Patrick Murphys thin margin of victory over Republican U.S. Rep. Allen West in a nationally watched congressional race and prompted the West campaign to call for a recount of all the countys early votes.
Although it issued a public notice saying it would recount all 37,379 early ballots, the countys elections canvassing board opted to recount only 16,275 ballots from the last three days of early voting.
The partial recount shaved 667 votes off Murphys total and 132 votes from West in St. Lucie County, which is one of three counties in Congressional District 18. Wests net gain of 535 votes reduced Murphys overall margin in the district to 1,907 votes or 0.58 percent still outside the 0.5 percent margin needed to trigger a recount under state law.
Thanks. Didn’t the Mayor of Fort Pierce now change as well?
