BROWARD CHAOS: Teacher Finds ‘Box of Provisional Ballots’ in School Storage Room

Originally published at:

A teacher in Broward County, Florida reportedly found a container labeled “provisional ballot box” in a school’s storage room this week; raising serious questions over the Sunshine State’s likely recount of pivotal Senate and Governor races.

According to the New York Post, Lakeisha Williams claims she discovered the box two days after Election Day at Miramar Elementary School; apparently left behind by county staffers.

“I went into the area that we use for storage and saw it in there,” Williams told The Post.

The teacher says she did not touch or open the box, but handed the material over to local authorities.

“I don’t know where it is now,” Williams confirmed.

“The state’s races for US Senate and governor have tightened to a difference of less than 0.5 percent — potentially triggering an automatic recount,” writes the Post. “Republican Gov. Rick Scott led democratic incumbent Bill Nelson by just 17,000 votes — or 0.2 percent — for the Senate seat on Thursday.”
