TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Allison Tant's victory in the party chairman election ended up being closer than first announced after missing votes were discovered.

The party initially announced Saturday that Tant beat Alan Clendenin 587 to 448. But a ballot from Miami-Dade County wasn't counted when it got stuck to another ballot. The final result ended up being 587 to 507.

After discovering the ballot, party officials twice recounted the vote.
