(FOX NEWS) – Lawyers for Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson on Monday filed a federal lawsuit that claims Florida is disenfranchising voters by not counting mail-in ballots it received after Election Day.
The lawsuit comes after 266 absentee ballots from the post office’s Opa-locka sorting facility arrived at Miami-Dade’s election office on Sunday. State law requires all mail ballots to be received when the polls close – which was 7 p.m. on November 6.
Nelson is locked in a fierce recount battle with Gov. Rick Scott.
Attorneys representing Scott and Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes also were in court Monday.
