Florida's secretary of state dispatched auditors Wednesday to try to get to the bottom of voting irregularities in St. Lucie County, where Rep. Allen B. West trails in vote-counting after last week's election but says there are too many questions for him to concede.
Chris Cate, a spokesman for Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner, said the three representatives are looking into how votes were tabulated in the race and whether voting equipment worked properly.
"What we're seeing in St. Lucie County is certainly not the norm," Mr. Cate said. "They're the only county we're sending three employees to right now and the only county that stands out in this way."
