Friday, April 1st, 2011

A veteran Elections Supervisor said the proposal will lead to fewer voters.

 Election officials, political activists and a voter advocacy group say they don’t like what they saw when they got their first look at an election reform bill Friday morning.

The proposal makes several changes to state election laws including increasing the authority of the Secretary of State as Florida chief election officer and regulation of  groups registering voters.

The House Government Operations Subcommittee approved the omnibus bill on a party line vote. To hear a radio report click ELECTION.
