Supervisor Of Elections
A statewide directive dealing with absentee ballots is rankling some election supervisors in Florida.
As people voted hours after midnight on election night, Miami-Dade county leaders were scrambling to fix what had been days of chaos.
Eleven days after the Nov. 6 election, election workers in St. Lucie County begun a recount of early votes in the race between Republican U.S. Rep. Allen West and Patrick Murphy, the man who apparently unseated him.
It’s been four long days since polls closed. A Saturday noon deadline for Florida counties to provide the state with unofficial vote tallies passed with no new numbers.
It’s a record breaking year for absentee ballot voting in Broward County.
With the 2012 general election likely to be extremely close in Florida, voters and poll watchers will be on high alert for any possible irregularities at the polls throughout the day Tuesday.
Early voting is well underway in the Sunshine State and more than 100,000 residents of Miami-Dade and Broward Counties have already cast their votes.
Governor Rick Scott wants every county to reduce early voting days from 12 to eight and the only thing standing in his way is Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Harry Sawyer.
With early voting well underway for August 14th’s primary election, the news coming from around the state has been positive with many election supervisors saying they hope this will foreshadow an easy general election in November.
Early voting for the August primary is already well underway, but the results in Broward County have been slim, while Miami-Dade is seeing large number voting by absentee ballot.
