A lead of less than 0.25 percent triggers a hand recount of actual ballots.
"He himself said that as ballots are being counted, it is tightening".
In the first lawsuit, filed by Scott jointly with the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) against Broward County, the sitting governor alleges that the county's Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes, violated the law because she was "unwilling to disclose records revealing how many electors voted, how many ballots have been canvassed, and how many ballots remain to be canvassed". That poll had a margin of error of 2 percent. That's 0.44 percent of the vote total, well below the 0.50 percent difference threshold, now 41,048 votes, triggering a mandatory machine recount of the governor's election.
During Scott's successful reelection campaign in 2014 against Charlie Crist, he lost the Keys vote by five percentage points. Both counties are considered areas rich in Democratic votes.
Two days after the United States mid-term elections, Florida's senate race remains unresolved, along with several others across the country.
Elias opened a call with reporters on Friday l by highlighting how the split between Scott and Nelson has shrunk since Election Day and confidently said he believed, after all votes are counted correctly, Nelson would prevail the victor. "We are still counting ballots in Broward County". But so far, they have only tabulated 665,688 ballots in the Senate race.
The tight races underscored Florida's status as a perennial swing state where elections are often decided by the thinnest of margins.
Recounts, which have not officially been authorized in either race, put the outcome of two of the most closely watched races of 2018 on hold, with Democrats hoping for a miracle that could get both Gillum, a candidate who garnered considerable attention in his campaign against DeSantis, and Nelson, an incumbent who Democrats had thought would win his seat going into Tuesday night, over the finish line with a win.
Even if Nelson had conceded, state law would have required the recount anyway.

It was soon overshadowed by the governor's race: a vitriolic competition between Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum that has become a proxy battle between Trump and his Democratic opponents.
When asked about it Wednesday night, she said, "I can't give you an exact number". Nelson's campaign aides believe he will emerge victorious once all the ballots are counted. On Thursday morning, Mr Gillum's team walked back his earlier concession to Republican Mr DeSantis.
Nelson spokesman Dan McLaughlin said the senator's campaign is trying to ensure "that all the votes in Florida are counted and counted accurately".
As of Thursday evening, it met the qualifications to undergo a manual recount, with Scott earning 50.09 percent of the vote. As of Thursday afternoon, DeSantis led Gillum by 0.47 percentage point. Every person in Florida knows exactly what is happening. However, according to the Tallahassee Democrat, White House reporter April Ryan's sources have told her the actual vote difference between the men is only 15,000.
A judge Friday sided with Scott and ordered Broward County's election supervisor to release the voter information sought by the governor by 7 p.m. Such a recount would involve running ballots through tabulating machines to determine the accuracy of the vote totals, according to state law. His campaign has been concerned about "undervoting" in the county, because thousands of people voted in the governor's race but not the Senate race.
Generally, most provisional ballots are accepted, said Dan Smith, a political scientist at the University of Florida.
