Secretary of State plans meetings with supervisors on voter roll review

by John Kennedy | September 11th, 2013

Amid rising pushback from county election supervisors to Gov. Rick Scott’s plan to revive efforts to remove noncitizens from Florida voter rolls, Secretary of State Ken Detzner announced Wednesday a series of meetings with these officials.

The voter roll review and series of roundtable meetings is being called Project Integrity.

“I am embarking on the Project Integrity roundtable tour to collaborate with supervisors to protect the integrity of our voter rolls,” Detzner said.

“Through transparency and the statutory due process protection afforded to every voter, we can ensure the continued integrity of our voter rolls while protecting the voting rights of eligible voters from those who may cast an illegal vote,” he added. ”Our elections process must uphold the integrity of local voter rolls, and I look forward to the participation from
supervisors of elections to strengthen our elections statewide.”

Detzner has scheduled roundtables with county supervisors Oct. 3 through Oct. 9 that are designed for the state to draw input on how to proceed with the effort to remove noncitizens from state voter rolls.

The Oct. 9 hearing is expected to draw supervisors from South Florida and is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. at the Broward County Governmental Center.

Detzner’s announcement comes a day after minority and voter rights organizations urged Scott to drop the review, warning that the database he plans to use is flawed.

Scott intends to use the U.S. Department of Homeland Security SAVE list — the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements — list to conduct the review. Several county election supervisors already have raised concerns about the accuracy of the database, saying it may not accurately reflect the voting elibility of many recent immigrants.

    Too late, Governor Lex Luthor.

    Florida voters will not forget the things you did and your pandering now to try to improve your floundering numbers. Why on earth anyone in this state would vote for a crook like you is beyond my comprehension, but I guarantee that I for one will be doing everything I can to make sure the voters don’t send a nimrod like you back to Tallahassee. —

    I certainly hope the PBP is responsible enough to remind voters of the fact that Republicans still want to enact voter ID laws so they know who’s voting, but through the illegal use of 501(c)(4) groups want to keep secret the names of millionaires/billionaires financing the Republican buying of elections and the violent corporate overthrow of our Democratic Republic.

    Project “Integrity” lacks integrity. It is nothing but an effort by the far, far, far right wing coward to win elections without amassing a majority vote.

    Historically, the far, far, far right wing cannot win elections with a large turn out, especially a large turn out of minority voters.

    Answer? Campaign more effectively? Change policies? NO: rather deprive those minorities of the vote.

    I am a 65 year old white man and I will fight these coward to the death!!!
