Thousands of Voters at Risk of Exclusion as Florida Government Moves to Quash Votes Launching Large Scale Protest of Florida Violations
There was outrage in the election reform community as Florida put forward plans to purge thousands of voters from election lists. A great organization, Project Vote, has an interesting article about the issue. Take a look at this excerpt:
“Today, civil and voting rights organizations Project Vote, Fair Elections Legal Network, Advancement Project, LatinoJustice PRLDEF, LULAC Florida, and the Hillsborough Hispanic Coalition, Inc. sent a letter to Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner alerting him that Florida’s plan to identify and remove alleged non-citizens from the voter rolls violates federal law and must cease immediately.
Protest of Florida Violation Continues… Earlier this month, the Florida Division of Elections sent county supervisors of elections a list of nearly 2,700 voters that they flagged as possible non-citizens by comparing voter lists with the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) database and jury recusal forms. These “matches” are scheduled to be removed from the rolls if they do not respond to notification within 30 days.”
