Default Miami-Dade just got 266 ballots from the Opa-locka post office. They won’t be counted

The stray ballots from the Opa-locka mail sorting facility arrived at Miami-Dade’s Elections Department on Saturday morning. There were 266 of them.
Quote:
Suzy Trutie, a spokeswoman for the agency, disclosed the number Saturday night as Miami-Dade began recounting more than 800,000 ballots cast in the races for Florida’s governor, senator and agriculture commissioner. The process is part of a statewide recount that must finish Thursday afternoon.

The Opa-locka ballots won’t be counted. Florida law says county election offices can only count mail-in ballots that arrive by the time polls close at 7 p.m. on Election Day. Miami-Dade received 15,000 mail-in ballots on Tuesday while voting was under way, and those were added to the county’s total of more than 813,000 votes.
Florida should really change this law to mailed/time-stamped, not received.

No real need to count them. All 266 voted D. Just add them to the list.

No. They would need to be counted if the law was like most states, "mailed by." .

Back in 2,000 Miami Dade refused to honor Navy votes that came in just hours late.

Me thinks it is not the laws that need changing but the people who are entrusted to be fair, hones and reasonable in the enforcement of laws on the books. However,,,; Fair, honest and reasonable doesn't mix well with Politics.

It's time Florida had an [Athens TN [/I]moment.
