    As Stalin said it’s not who votes, it’s who counts the votes.

    Judge Jeanine said that Scott could have removed Snipes from that office after 2016, while he was governor, and should have. Letting this go has come back to bite him in the a$$. :\

    Florida teacher finds ‘provisional ballot box’ in storage area

    https://nypost.com/2018/11/08/florida-teacher-finds-provisional-ballot-box-in-storage-area/?fbclid=IwAR3kkOL6yQXeAPpLVaBD4Qvb-i4FXQyAa99DGK0Bjlq1llkBXRkHI4Zqdp4

    A teacher in Florida found a container labeled “Provisional Ballot Box” in a storage area of her elementary school on Thursday.

    Lakeisha Williams, of Broward County, said she discovered the ballot box two days after Election Day at Miramar Elementary School — where it was apparently left behind by election workers.

    “I went into the area that we use for storage and saw it in there,” Williams told The Post.

    Williams said she did not touch or look inside the box. Instead, she told the school’s principal and they decided to contact a local state representative.

    “I don’t know where it is now,” Williams said, noting that all provisional ballots needed to be received by county officials before 5 p.m. Thursday.

    Votes are still being counted in the Sunshine State.

      ALL these “found” ballots need to be connected up with the names and signatures of the citizen who supposedly marked them. I think it should be easy enough to invalidate many of them because none of the procedures were followed. Counts were not turned in when due, ballots were not counted when they should have been, and on and on. And, this Snipes woman should NEVER be allowed anywhere near a voting precinct ever again. Actually, I think she should be in jail.

    I have had people tell me before that it wouldn’t be fair, but I think we need laws governing national elections that any absentee ballots not received on or before election don’t count with the exception of military ballots overseas if it’s evident they did not receive them in time to get them returned by election day.
    This would stop some of this stuff, provisional ballots should have to be decided on within 24 hours of the close of an election.
    All counting of ballots, handling of ballots, etc. should be recorded to go back and review in cases like this, along with at least 3 signatures and a time stamp and seal on each box of ballots.

    I’m sure there are more that can be added to this list to make our election system secure.

      Okay. The problem we are having in FL is that a lot, if not all, of these things are in place………….just being ignored by a woman who is in charge of the ballots. She has ignored everything and this needs to be taken out of her hands.

      In Michigan all ballot boxes are sealed with metal tags and there is a chain of possession. If the number of ballots don’t match the number of voters in a precinct, those ballots aren’t counted – none of them.

        I know some states have laws, but it seems to be so different from one state to the other that when it comes to national elections laws should be the same.
        People violating them need to be federally prosecuted.

          They aren’t Federal elections. They are state elections with some federal candidates on the ballot. I DO NOT want the Feds to take over state elections.

            We’re going to have slightly disagree here, I do not want them to take them over but I do believe we need secure elections and if states don’t have secure laws when it comes to our ballots and illegal voters then it hurts other states. In that aspect I believe we need national laws that makes the consequences of committing voter fraud just a little more severe.
            Just like this woman in Broward county how is a woman like that still having anything to do with ballots. It’s insane and it’s insane because the state failed to do anything to her, including the man who is now getting the short end of the stick because of her.

            So I don’t want them to take them over, but I do think uniform laws regarding only citizens voting and a chain of command on handling and counting ballots needs to be done.
            Maybe some of these laws are already federal I don’t know for sure, but I do know it’s ridiculous that 3 days after an election suddenly there are new ballots to count.

                See that’s when it would be nice if she could be federally prosecuted if the state was going to do nothing. Again, I’m not sure on all the laws, so maybe she could have been and they chose not to.
                If nobody is ever punished then they have no fear of continuing doing what they’re doing.

                I admit I am not even sure on my own state laws. Such as our voter ID law, the way I read and understood it when it was passed was that you had to have a state issued photo ID.
                I read on the state election board site this year that you could vote with either a photo ID or your registration card. It is nothing more than basically the thickness of a business card with your name, polling place, district and party registration printed on it. Something easily made with any scanner printer.
                I had this argument with someone the other day. Let’s say I’m a crooked person, what would prevent me from using a recently deceased family member or friend who was still on the books card and voting for them?

                    I remember reading our Voter ID law when it passed and maybe I misread it, but how I found out about the voter registration card was because when we went and voted the lady asked my daughter if she also had her registration card when she handed her DL to her.
                    She was telling her husband that on the phone and he said he guessed he would have to go home first when he got off work because his card was at home.
                    I told her she or he didn’t need their card just their DL. So I looked it up on the election board page and it said either or.

                    Another problem with this is you can register to vote by mail. I may have an overactive imagination, but what would prevent someone from getting online and printing out however many registrations they want and sending them in? Then even without making their own voter registration card they can have it sent to them and hand them out to ineligible voters or illegal citizens?

                    I’m thinking at some point they changed our original law or I just have a really bad memory and remember something different.

                    I think we really need to be making some changes to our state’s election laws, but I don’t see that happening for at least the next two years. We have too many liberal Republican holdovers and new liberal Republicans in our legislature. Hopefully our new governor changes his opinion on taxing us like a market or the states he wants to tax us like have low taxes because that’s what we’re going to be up against now. We’re going to need him to have a lot of ink for that veto stamp.

                After 2000 they passed laws that set minimum standards to states.
                I don’t really see how adding chain of command on ballots, deadlines, etc. is any different than that.
