Florida orders statewide hand recount; will divine how voters ‘intended to vote’

[Ed. – Reportedly, the hand recount in all 67 counties is unprecedented. It’s a really convenient do-over for the Democrats, who lost again in the machine recount just completed.  The governor’s race has apparently been called, with Republican Ron DeSantis the winner.  Keep in mind also: the agriculture commissioner race is exceptionally important, because the ag commissioner administers concealed carry licenses, and the Democrat — on the Soros-backed slate this year — has a gun-restrictions agenda. Emphasis added.]

An unprecedented statewide hand recount is now under way in the Sunshine State, further extending a high-stakes, partisan battle over every last vote in Florida’s crucial U.S. Senate race.

Following a five-day machine recount of the more than 8.3 million votes cast in the Nov. 6 elections, Secretary of State Ken Detzner ordered hand recounts Thursday afternoon in the race between U.S. Sen Bill Nelson and Gov. Rick Scott, and also the race for agriculture commissioner between Nicole “Nikki” Fried and Matt Caldwell.

The order gives canvassing boards in the state’s 67 counties three days to pore over thousands of ballots that were rejected by machines because of “overvotes” — a voter appears to have chosen more than one candidate in a race — or “undervotes,” in which a voter appears to have skipped a race altogether. With the help of state guidelines, the canvassing boards, which are allowed to enlist the help of volunteers, will try to determine how these voters intended to vote.
