Many elections may not quite be settled just yet and this may open an entire can of worms across the country.
Only one precinct had less than 113% turnout. The unofficial vote count is 175,554 registered voters 247,713 vote cards cast (141.10% ). The National SEAL Museum, a St. Lucie county polling place, had 158.85% voter turn out, the highest in the county.
When asked about the 141% Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker stated, “They may have had something like that in Palm Beach County, but we’ve never seen that here.”
Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker posted to the SLC Elections website the following:
The CANVASSING BOARD meeting scheduled for the recount on saturday, november 10, 2012 at 7:00 am has been rescheduled for wednesday, november 14, 2012 at 7:00 am at the supervisor of elections office, 4132 okeechobee road mall entrance 2.
So hey, it appears that Rep. Allen West was pretty well justified in calling for ballots and voting machines to be impounded. Of course that request was denied by a Florida judge.
