The St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections is admitting that mistakes were made on election night
When uploading results from the last three days of early voting, Gertrude Walker blames human and machine errors, telling TC Palm "i'm not perfect, neither is my staff".
40 of 94 precincts, mostly in Fort Pierce, weren't counted at all and another 54 precincts were counted twice. In total ballots, more than 3,600 in St. Lucie were counted twice, while 1,953 were not scanned at all.
Walker says a retabulation on sunday corrected the error, and she claims she's confident that every vote has been counted accurately.
One guy who's not satisfied with that answer is republican U.S. Congressman Allen West, who is demanding another recount in the district 18 race, in which democrat Patrick Murphy is the unofficial winner.
