    and when it's not.....you still want those votes to be counted? Where is the accountability?

    Um, nothing? What do you want me to do? Go down there with tar and feathers? Create a one person human barricade? Fart in their general direction?

    What are YOU going to do?

    Straw man argument. No one has argued that a legitimate ballot, that can truly be determined to be legitimate, not be counted. If Snipes and others have failed to do that or have rendered once legitimate ballots indeterminate, then join the rest of us in our anger and disgust.

        Correct....but why does the incompetence always come from the same places? Why are they not done counting? That's what we need to find out. I believe the Attorney General should put them on lockdown and do the count themselves to insure that corruptness is not changing one of our last and most important rights....don't you?

          No, I don't want questionable/provisional votes where consistent standards are not applied counted.

          Hence the word consistent. There should be one agreed-upon standard, and that applied to every vote.

          But every legitimate vote should be counted, regardless of administrative incompetence. Agree?

          Even Opra could not swing the election in GA.

          Cheating won't give you FL - Recounts may swing hundreds of votes NOT thousands.

          And who are the "Folks" in AZ? are they the same ones who predicted Hillary's victory and the this so called "Blue Wave"

          And no matter what happens, the GOP has the Senate AND the White House:burn:

          Not the Attorney General.

          Create a canvassing board made of of competent supervisor of elections from across the state and have them do the work. They are familiar with the process and can apply the standards consistently.

            There is an agreed upon standard. Broward failed to meet it.
            They failed to provide basic, easily found, accountability information, and in doing so, have made it impossible to determine legitimate from illegitimate votes.

            Maybe if we keep saying it, eventually you'll get it.

              It's very simple and easy for counties to provide vote totals prior to actually tallying the votes, by hand or machine.
              Florida uses paper ballots, which are then placed into the machine. That machine counts the votes.
              All a county has to do has basic addition of the vote totals in each machine and provide that on time as they are required to by law. 65 counties had no problem doing so. One of which is larger than the Broward or Palm Beach county. Hillsborough being just as large as Palm Beach county. Failure to do so makes those votes subject to ineligibility imo.

              This basic addition figure allows for the verification process to work. It's part of the law specifically to root out this exact situation. This isn't complicated Always.

                First, who is Opra?

                There is no cheating happening in Florida and the Senate race is in serious doubt for Scott. You can tell that he's nervous about it and it's glorious.

                This was a Blue Wave and you can hold onto that 2016 election until you turn blue.

                For two more years and then we'll have all three...elections matter!

                Why not?
                We don't need to recount EVERY ballot in the state, just 2 counties and I'm sure their staff is well educated and can count what ?, maybe a couple thousand votes? It can't be that many.....and the precincts would know how many unless…..they were corrupt and or lying. It's really as simple as that.

                Due to chain of custody we can't be sure which are and which aren't, can we? If I made two trays of brownies and mixed **** in with one of them and offered you a brownie would you eat it? So either 8 million people in the rest of Florida are disenfranchised or one county whose supervisors violated the law is. It sucks, but they voted for her.

                  Did you object when those Veteran Ballots were not counted because the “Military Mail” did not mark them?

                  And do you care that “Mickey Mouse” may cast a ballot? Oh but it’s just a few so Trump was lying about voter fraud.

                  And how racist is to assume, minorities can’t provide a picture ID or that it’s a hardship to obtain one?

                  And why again is it only a hardship for one race but not another?

                  Do you need an ID to collect Government Subsidies? Or attend public schools? Just asking?

                    What do you don't get is that people that didn't vote for her are also at risk of their vote not counting. Sucks for them, right?

                    I want to say I can't believe the flippant attitude of some about someone's rights being trampled on, but in this day and age I certainly can.

                    We will see. If Sinema doesn't gain too much today there is a decent chance McSally can pass her with final election day votes counted.
