Officials from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement said Friday that their office has not received any allegations of voter fraud from the Florida Department of State.

Around 1:30 p.m. Saturday, the secretary of state ordered a machine recount for the U.S. Senate race between Gov. Rick Scott and incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson, the Florida gubernatorial race between Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum and Ron DeSantis and the Florida agriculture commissioner race between Matt Caldwell and Nikki Fried.

The recount is required by Florida law if results show a less than 0.5 percentage point vote difference between two candidates. Saturday’s unofficial returns show Nelson trailing Scott by 12,562 votes, just 0.15 of a percentage point of the over 8.1 million received. Gillum is 33,684 votes behind DeSantis, making the race divided by 0.41 of a percentage point. Caldwell, with 4,025,011 votes, has the narrowest margin, only a 0.06 of a percentage point difference from Fried’s 4,030,337 votes.
