Hand recount done, no change

Local election workers wrapped up a manual recount of the U.S. Senate and Agriculture Commissioner races on Friday, Nov. 16 around noon.

In the senate race, Republican Rick Scott was still the winner in Wakulla County. Scott did gain one vote in the manual recount, and Nelson gained two.

Supervisor of Elections Buddy Wells said one voter wrote-in Nelson’s name instead of filling out the oval, so the vote hadn’t been counted for him before.
