As vote recounts across Florida continue, election officials are pointing to issues with some voting machines.
According to Duval County Supervisor of Elections Mike Hogan, a certain type of voting machine wasn’t counting ballots properly. The official said this will prompt a recount of another 15,000 ballots.
Democrat Party officials have encouraged the recounts as their Senate and gubernatorial candidates hope to overturn what appears to be a pair of losses.
Outgoing Florida Governor and Senate candidate Rick Scott demanded that state police impound voting machines over the suspicion of fraud.
“Their goal is to keep mysteriously finding more votes until the election turns out the way they want, and when that fails they will file a bunch of lawsuits in order to try to overturn the will of the voters…they’re trying to steal this election, they’re still finding ballots,” stated Scott.
