At a time when 59% of the public doesn't trust the election process, state elections officials have thrown a veil of secrecy over that work, refusing to disclose details about the weaknesses detected in their systems and whether they’ve been fixed. ... See MoreSee Less
Gov. Ron DeSantis was told during an FBI briefing that at least 2 Florida counties were hacked in the 2016 election, but he signed a nondisclosure agreement saying he would not divulge which counties were affected.
The request for contact information was added by the Legislature and Governor last year as part of a wide-ranging law that changed several aspects of the way Florida elections are run. ... See MoreSee Less
Floridians voting by mail in 2020 elections are being asked to put their email addresses, home and mobile phone numbers along with their signatures on the outside of the envelopes they mail back to the elections office. The system could allow anyone who comes in contact with the return envelope to s...
This is surely illegal. It is an enabler of identity theft and is probably meant to keep people from voting by mail. I would not put my info on the outside of an envelope. I will do early voting.
That's why I drop mine off in the secure drop box inside the bureau of elections office. Not perfect, but better.
The only good thing about this is that YOUR VOTE is still VALID even without putting your phone and email on the envelope.
I have arthritis in my hands. Signature is iffy.
Going to take my mail ballot to the polling place.
If you are uncomfortable placing the additional info, which will be in public view, place it in another envelope for sending to the Supervisor of elections. In the alternative, don't fill in the personal info section.
It clearly states on my envelope that that information is optional!!
This of course from the state that rewards teachers based on their high school SAT tests. Stop voting for these people!
Is this to be placed on the returned envelope or the interior envelope containing the ballot?
It is not illegal. It is mandated. If you don't want to fill it out, you do not have to. If there is a problem with your ballot, they will not be able to contact you. Why on the outside? I have no friggin' idea.
For this reason I’m taking my mailed ballot in on early voting and have it counted then.
No way I’m doing that!
It is not required
GOP= GAME OF PREDATORS, PROFITEERS, POLLUTERS, PROLIFIC LIARS.. GOVT. OF PUTIN.
Come on now! Your Email is already everywhere, your phone # can be looked up. A photocopy of your signature would be obvious. If you still don't like it, offer a solution. If your ballot is suppose to be anonymous, with no identifying information on it, how do the polls know how to contact you? If the signature and contact info is on another piece of paper in the envelope, how are they kept together in a room where thousands are being opened to count? If they are stapled together, then you ballot is no longer anonymous. Most mail is only handled by postal employees till delivered. Nothing is 100% private anymore, I guess we have to trust somebody somewhere to do their job responsibly.
They're the masters of election cheating, aren't they??? All kinds of tricks !
Florida leaders have promised to improve teacher pay in this “Year of the Teacher” ever since Gov. Ron DeSantis suggested boosting the state’s minimum teacher salary in October. Proposals emerged in the aftermath. The House and Senate adopted their budgets — which differ by $150 million — almost two weeks ago. Since then, crickets. And there are just three weeks remaining before the 2020 legislative session ends. ... See MoreSee Less
This gun show closed the “loophole” proactively and things work relatively the same. Why not add this extra precaution to every show? Simple steps towards gun safety like this shouldn’t be so polarizing. ... See MoreSee Less
