JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The map says it all. It's now two days post-election, and Florida sits among all of the red and blue states in gray.
"I don't know why we're not on the ball," said local voter Ronnie Rentz.
Rentz says he waited an hour in line to early vote in what many thought was a state that could swing the whole election. But now, days later, he fears Florida looks just as incompetent as it did in 2000.
"I just, you know, don't want to be the laughingstock of America," said Rentz.
So with ballots still being sorted statewide, we went to the Duval County Supervisor of Elections Office to sort out the situation.
When Action News asked Duval Supervisor of Elections Jerry Holland, if he thought Florida messed up this election, he said, "Absolutely not."
Holland says what it comes down to is that the Sunshine State is simply still too close to call.
"We're doing the right thing. It's a close race. If we had a great spread here then I guarantee you people would have already colored in the state," he said.
By Thursday afternoon, President Obama still had the lead in Florida but by less than 1 percentage point. A handful of counties, including Duval, were still counting ballots.
"Everybody wants something done as quick as going through a drive-thru, but really, at the end of the day you want to make sure that the votes cast are accurate and accounted for and that's our process" said Holland.
And albeit frustrating, Rentz says come next election, he'll still be there standing in line.
"People died so I could have that right, so I'm going to exercise that," Rentz said.
Although Florida remains undecided, the final tally will not change the outcome. Florida has 29 electoral votes and President Obama won by a bigger margin than that.
