Official at center of Florida vote controversy says she may leave job after recountThe controversial director of elections in Broward County said Tuesday that her division will finish a machine recount by the state deadline of Thursday afternoon, adding that she might retire after this election. “We will complete the recount … I think we’re on a good schedule and we will finish before the deadline on Thursday,” Brenda Snipes told reporters in the media room, which is separated by a pane of glass from the room where elections workers are retabulating the results of the Florida election that took place a week ago. If any of those races is within a margin of 0.25 percent after the machine recount, then the state will move to a hand recount of the ballots.
