What to Know

  • Democratic incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson has begun preparing for a potential recount in a race still too close to call against Gov. Rick Scott

  • In the governor’s race, Andrew Gillum’s campaign said Thursday it’s readying for a possible recount as Ron DeSantis’ lead lessened

Tension continues to build in Florida as the possibility of a recount continues to loom over key races: the Florida Governor’s seat, the Florida Senate seat and the seat for agriculture commissioner.

At noon on Saturday, all 67 election supervisors must send unofficial electoral results to Secretary of State Ken Detzner. Detzner will then review those results and decide if any races are in need of an automatic recount.

An automatic machine recount is ordered if races are within .5%. A hand recount is ordered if the margins are within .25%.

Lawyers for the candidates in Florida’s close Senate race faced off in court Friday afternoon as the race appeared headed to a recount, along with the race for governor. [1
