FLA. federal judge: Why aren't 25,000 registered?


Recommended Posts

TALLAHASSEE (AP) --

A federal judge wants to know why nearly 25,000 people who've applied to vote haven't been registered in Florida.

 

 

U.S. District Judge Mark Walker has asked state election officials to tell him during a Friday hearing about their efforts to verify voter registration applications.

 

Walker extended the voter registration deadline from Oct. 11 to Oct. 18 following the disruption caused by Hurricane Matthew. Democrats asked for the extension after Gov. Rick Scott turned down requests to move back the deadline.

 

During the extended period nearly 103,000 Floridians have been added to the voter rolls. But Walker noted Thursday that the number of applications processed has "slowed dramatically."

 

State officials acknowledge that they have nearly 25,000 applications still pending. But they say most of them have insufficient information or incorrect addresses.

Well..there you go.

Yes, indeed, the state better hop on it or this federal judge might create some new problems for them, like extending the deadline again.

Legislating from the bench again. Sounds like checks and balances are tipped against the silent majority held hostage by those manifesting mind over matter context to rule the content being balanced here now naturally.
