BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. --  Brenda Snipes, Broward County's Supervisor of Elections, submitted her resignation letter late Sunday, according to reports.

Snipes faced heavy criticism for her handling of this year's midterm election and subsequent statewide recount.

During the recount, Snipes' office misplaced 2,000 ballots. Her offices also missed a deadline to submit machine recount results by two minutes.

Snipes has served as Broward's top elections official since 2003, when she was appointed by then governor Jeb Bush.
