The uncertainty was beginning to get to Jennifer Dupoux, a salon owner inside Broward County city of Tamarac. “We are three days out, as well as we still don’t know who will be going to lead Florida,” Ms. Dupoux said. “I have been voting here since I was 18, as well as I don’t know what to think. This kind of has been so stressful. I can’t even look at the news because the item’s so upsetting.”

Those recounts would likely have to be completed by Nov. 18.
