Things are heating up in the Sunshine State as Florida Republicans have sent a notice letter to the Broward County Supervisor of Elections threatening to sue over the lack of transparency in the handling of mail ballots and refusal to allow observation of the process. The letter states that the office is only allowing 30 minutes of observation of tens of thousands of ballots arriving. What is Broward County trying to hide? The process of handling mail ballots and determining legal or illegal ballots is supposed to be open to the public. With the recent voter fraud problems in Miami-Dade, where election office workers without oversight or public observation engaged in criminal activity, you would think that Broward County would open its door to political parties and candidate representatives to observe this process and ensure a clean election. It is strange and unusual that while counties across Florida, including Miami-Dade, meet often to canvass or process incoming mail ballots, the Supervisor of Elections in Broward and the Canvassing Board have not yet met. Instead, it appears they are doing so illegally behind closed doors.
Here is the full letter to the Broward County Supervisor of Elections.
