The manual vote count in Charlotte County for the US Senate race wrapped up Friday afternoon with a net gain of 22 for Senator Bill Nelson and eight votes for Rick Scott. Observers from the Nelson and Scott campaigns were involved in the count along with staff from the County Supervisor of Elections office.
The manual count then moved on to the race for Florida Secretary of Agriculture. That count is expected to finish late Friday afternoon or evening.
The Charlotte County totals will be added to the statewide counts in both races.
