TALLAHASSEE, Fla. A Florida judge said Friday the state does not have to accept hand counted presidential votes tallied after the deadline imposed by a Republican election official.

Al Gore hopes the ongoing counts will turn up enough votes to overturn George W. Bush's 300-vote lead in Florida.

Gore was expected to appeal.
