Allen West team calls for help with 30k ballots, race not over

The race for the District 18 congressional seat is not over according to the Allen West team. West has not conceded the race and there are still votes to be counted according to the following email sent to volunteers this morning.

Trusted Volunteers,
It’s been a long road to Election Day, but it’s not over yet. We still have 30,000 absentee ballots in Palm Beach County that need to be transferred over for their vote to count. This could mean votes for Congressman West and to ensure that he remains a loyal and dedicated member of the House. We need volunteers TOMORROW, November 7th starting at 10am until a final result has been reached. Please call either Lauren (561-389-0517) or Cory (954-684-2723) to RSVP and let us know when you’re coming. We appreciate all you’ve been doing and ask that you PLEASE help us for this very important part of the election. We need as MANY people as we can get.
Campaign Manager Tim Edson also released the following press release late Wednesday morning:

“This race is far from decided and there is no rush to declare an outcome.  Ensuring a fair and accurate counting of all ballots is of the utmost importance.   There are still tens of thousands of absentee ballots to be counted in Palm Beach County and potential provisional ballots across the district.  

Late last night Congressman West maintained a district-wide lead of nearly 2000 votes until the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections “recounted” thousands of early ballots.  Following that “recount” Congressman West trailed by 2,400 votes.   In addition, there were numerous other disturbing irregularities reported at polls across St. Lucie County including the doors to polling places being locked when the polls closed, in direct violation of Florida law, thereby preventing the public from witnessing the procedures used to tabulate results.  The St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections office clearly ignored proper rules and procedures, and the scene at the Supervisor’s office last night could only be described as complete chaos.   Given the hostility and demonstrated incompetence of the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections,  we believe it is critical that a full hand recount of the ballots take place in St. Lucie County.   We will continue to fight to ensure every vote is counted properly and fairly,  and accordingly will pursue all legal means necessary.”
