Officials Visit Scott to Ask for Extended Early Voting

Aug 21, 2012

A group of elected and civil rights leaders showed up unexpectedly in Governor Rick Scott's office Monday. 

Collier County Supervisor of Elections Jennifer Edwards says she’ll have no problem meeting the Justice Department’s Aug. 15 deadline for election records.

The documentation request made on July 31 is related to a statewide effort to remove non-citizens from voter rolls.

Edwards says her office has contacted 27 questionable voters. One responded with proof of citizenship.  Many did not respond to a certified letter.  And, some called to explain how they were erroneously enrolled to vote – via the motor voter bill.
