More Than 6,000 Mail-In Ballots Not Counted in Florida Elections
December 11, 2018 / N/A
Florida officials say thousands of mailed ballots were not counted because they were delivered too late to state election offices. Three statewide Florida races, including the contest for governor, went to state-mandated recounts because the margins were so close. The Department of State late last week informed a federal judge that 6,670 ballots were mailed ahead of the Nov. 6 election but were not counted because they were not received by Election Day. The tally prepared by state officials includes totals from 65 of Florida's 67 counties.
