GENE RANDALL, CNN ANCHOR: Shortly we expect to hear the latest the Bush campaign, namely George W. Bush the presidential candidate who would like to be president-elect and his running mate Dick Cheney; but as we wait for that, let's go back to John Zarrella in West Palm Beach, Florida.
John, exactly what is going on there at the moment?
JOHN ZARRELLA, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Well, Gene, we just finished up that news conference that we in. We were watching and listening to that news conference where they were going over what the rules would be for both the media and how they would handle this manual count.
Now, we have been saying right along that what they would do is divide it up, initially into 10 stacks as they go through to do the hand count; one for each of the presidential candidates. Then they will go back after they've completed that and further divide it -- two more stacks will be created for the ballots that are found that were either over-punched or under-punched. In other words, either the voter went in and didn't punch a single presidential candidate or went in and punched more than one presidential candidate.
And the Democrats said there were four precincts that have been selected for this; selected by the Democrats because -- and now we're going to toss it back to you for some breaking news -- Gene.
RANDALL: All right, thanks John Zarrella in West Palm Beach.
