Saturday Is The Deadline For Unofficial Election Results

The legal action comes as Nelson is headed toward a recount in his Senate race with Republican Gov. Rick Scott. A recount is expected to come into play this weekend.

President Donald Trump even joined in on Scott's explosive allegations, with other Florida politicians jumping in as well.

Sen. Bill Nelson and his attorneys will head back to U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida Wednesday afternoon in a fight for a ruling that would require ballots with "signature mismatches" be counted. "Don't worry, Florida - I am sending much better lawyers to expose the FRAUD!" Trump said on Twitter, without elaborating.

One could also be issued in the tight gubernatorial race between the victor, GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis, and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, a Democrat. Protect Democracy interpreted the move as a response to its lawsuit.

Trump, meanwhile, continued his agitated tweeting about the race.

"What's going on in Florida is a disgrace", Trump added. If Democrats manage to edge out their Republican opponents in both states, Republicans would have a narrower margin to lose votes of party moderates on potentially contentious nominees.

Ms Snipes and Ms Bucher did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Earlier the president said "there could be" when asked by reporters whether he'd direct a federal intervention in the Florida race. It's become clear in recent days that corruption abounds and all efforts to ensure the integrity of elections has been thrown out the window - at least in Broward County.

The automatic recounts are a result of changes made after the 2000 election, when Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris opposed a recount in the presidential race between George W. Bush and Al Gore.

Scott holds a slim lead over Nelson in the race.

Nelson said Scott was abusing his office by trying to stop a complete and accurate counting of all the votes.

He said that local election supervisor Brenda Snipes, a Democrat, has a "horrible history" and is "finding votes out of nowhere".

Boarding Air Force One for France, where he'll participate in ceremonies to mark the 100th Armistice Day, Trump told reporters that "it always seems to go the way of the Democrats".

Who won these races? "It is time to move on!"

The ongoing accounts have whittled Mr. Scott's lead from roughly 60,000 on Election Night to slightly more than 15,000 late Friday.

Scott filed a lawsuit Thursday evening against Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes, accusing her office of withholding "crucial voter information," thereby calling into question the validity of the election process.

Broward County is at the center of the controversy in part because almost 25,000 more votes were cast for governor than for the Senate, a discrepancy larger than the current margin between Nelson and Scott.

Under Florida law, a 0.5 percent margin in an election automatically triggers a machine recount, while a 0.25 percent margin automatically triggers a manual recount, or recount by hand. In the hours after the polls closed, Broward County should have known exactly how many ballots they had in each category, with the exception of overseas military votes that may continue to trickle in.

Scott announced his intention to have law enforcement look into Broward and Palm Beach counties at a news conference Thursday night.

What originally started as a trio of protesters quickly grew into a group of about 200 people, voicing their outrage in the midst of three potential recounts in the Senate, Governor and State Agricultural Commission races.

Scott accused Broward and Palm Beach county election officials of fraud, but offered no evidence beyond procedural errors and Scott's dwindling vote margin.
