South Carolina Democratic Party Wins Court Order for a Recount of All Votes in State’s Most Second-Most Populous CountyNovember 9th, 2012
On November 8, the South Carolina Democratic Party won a lawsuit against the Richland County Election Commission. As a result, all the votes in the county, which is the state’s second-most populous county, will be recounted. Furthermore, the recount will be conducted by workers from the two major parties, rather than county election employees. See this story. Not all of the many problems mentioned in the story can be cured with a recount, however, especially the problem that many precincts did not have the legally required number of voting machines.
Richland County contains Columbia, the state capital.
