    The Iowa Caucus madness could be over as early as today. The Iowa Democratic Party spent the past two days recounting some results. Twenty-three precincts were recounted after the campaigns for Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg made the request. The party hasn't said when it'll release the final count.

    DES MOINES, Iowa - Tuesday, the Iowa Democratic Party will begin recounting select results from the Iowa Caucus. The party has agreed to re-tally results from twenty-three different precincts. Fourteen of those precincts were requested by Pete Buttigieg’s campaign and another 10 were requested from Bernie Sanders’ campaign. Administrators will conduct the recount and it will be overseen by the IDP’s recanvass and recount committee, with both campaigns able to have representatives present. It is expected to take two days to complete.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign plans to ask for a partial recount of the Iowa caucus results after the state Democratic Party releases the results of its recanvass. Sanders campaign senior adviser Jeff Weaver told The Associated Press in an interview Tuesday that the campaign has had a representative in contact with the Iowa Democratic Party throughout the recanvass process. “Based on what we understand to be the results, we intend to ask for a recount,” he said. The campaign expects that the already slim margin separating Sanders from Pete Buttigieg for the lead in Iowa will remain...

    Florida Democrats on Saturday were put on notice and told by the state's new voter protection director to expect a recount during next year's presidential election. Brandon Peters, who was hired by the state party in May, told a packed room of Democratic activists gathered in Orlando that there will be teams of volunteers trained in how to monitor county canvassing boards for recount problems around the state. "We are going to be prepared," Peters said at the party's Leadership Blue 2019 meeting. Florida infamously captured national headlines after the 2000 presidential election. Last year, the state was once again...

    The New Right party of Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked will conduct a partial vote recount following last Tuesday’s election, after receiving approval from the Central Elections Committee Sunday evening. Judge Hanan Melcer, the chairman of the Central Elections Committee, green lighted a request by the New Right to conduct a recount of votes in 300 ballot boxes which were used for special votes – the double-enveloped ballots cast by Israeli citizens unable to vote at the ballot nearest to their home. These voters include voters who were hospitalized during the election, soldiers stationed at bases...

    Broward County’s ballot recount hit yet another snag Saturday with 2,040 ballots lost or misplaced. The county’s eternally beleaguered Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said they either misplaced, misfiled or mixed in with another stack. One thing she said she was sure of: “The ballots are in this building.” “There would be nowhere else for them to be,” Snipes said. “The ballots are in the building. The ballots are in the building.” With a noon Sunday deadline looming, the three-person Canvassing Board was nonplussed and uncertain what to do.

    As the hand recount in Florida’s contentious Senate election got underway in Broward County, it quickly became clear that Democrats were headed for a bad day. This is the county where incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson needed to net thousands of new votes on Friday. But minutes into the recount, that became unlikely. Broward County is at the center of Nelson’s hopes for defeating Republican Rick Scott, who currently leads by fewer than 13,000 votes, because there were tens of thousands of ballots in the county that registered no vote in the Senate race. Because Broward is a heavily Democratic county,...

    This race is over. Even while Broward and Palm Beach Counties continue with their mandatory recount, incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson is still trailing Republican Gov. Rick Scott by 12,000 votes. Barring a miracle, or massive voter fraud, there’s no way he’s going to win. Even CNN admits this: Democrats hope a manual recount will overturn the results of Florida's Senate election and pave the wave for Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson to keep his Senate seat.Appearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer projected confidence about Nelson's chances."Bill Nelson is -- is strong as could be," Schumer said....

With almost 75% of votes recounted, Rick Scott’s lead has now GROWN by 54 votes. “Everyone knows how this is going to end. Everyone’s in on the joke here.

The Count wasted no time and immediately began counting as soon as he saw the ballots.

    By noon on Monday, Miami-Dade managed to recount about half of the more than 800,000 votes cast in the 2018 election. Broward County had not yet started its state-mandated recount. The stark contrast in pace from Florida’s two largest sources of ballots highlights the pressure facing Broward as it tries to meet a Thursday afternoon deadline to recount the more than 700,000 votes cast in the largely Democratic county.
