With tens of thousands of ballots from Broward County still apparently not counted, the Andrew Gillum campaign is now closely watching the votes being tallied in preparation for a possible recount.

Last night, Tallahassee Mayor Gillum tweeted: “I’m looking forward to seeing every vote counted.”

While Gillum hasn’t yet explicitly asked for a recount, a statement from his campaign said, “it has become clear there are many more uncounted ballots than was originally reported. Our campaign, along with our attorney Barry Richard, is monitoring the situation closely and is ready for any outcome, including a state-mandated recount.”

If the currently uncounted votes further tighten the 43,000 vote gap between Gillum and DeSantis, it’s possible that an automatic recount could come into effect, despite the fact that Gillum already conceded the race to his Republican opponent on Tuesday night. The gap between the two candidates would need to reach 0.5 percent or lower in order to trigger an automatic recount.

Spinnaker will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
