PALM BEACH, Fla., Nov. 17 (UPI) – Florida elections officials ordered a partial recount to begin Saturday in the race for the House seat held by Rep. Allen West, R-Fla.
The St. Lucie County Canvassing Board decided late Friday to count early-voting ballots cast in the 18th congressional district one more time.
West was trailing by 1,900 votes at last count and had been rebuffed by a judge when he asked for a recount of about 37,000 ballots. The judge said he did not have the authority to order the recount.
