The recount has not even really begun in Broward County. Local elections officials worked furiously through the day Monday to separate out the first page of a voting ballot that ranges from four to seven pages, so that Broward County can begin machine recounts of the elections for governor and Senate, as well as the statewide race for agriculture commissioner. Broward is one of two counties during the statewide recount that is most under the microscope.
