“Bill Nelson sues to block fax, email votes in Bay County from being counted”

Miami Herald:

Less than 24 hours since his last suit was filed, Bill Nelson is suing Bay County again.

The incumbent candidate for U.S. Senate, who has filed three other lawsuits in the past week, is suing Bay County Supervisor of Elections Mark Andersen to stop any ballots received via email or fax from being counted.

The second round of unofficial returns is due from the counties at 3 p.m. Thursday

The supervisor told the Herald/Times Monday that 11 ballots were accepted by email and 147 ballots were domestically faxed in, though state statute does not allow emailed ballots, and faxing in ballots is only permitted for military and voters overseas.
