Time Ticking For Democrat Electors

August 11th, 2008 by flanews

The clock is ticking for Florida Democrats to select people to cast the states electoral votes next January when the Electoral College meets to decide the Presidential Election. The selection committee met Saturday in Tampa, but didnt have enough members present to vote. The party has until September 1st to select people to cast the states 27 Electoral College votes if Barack Obama wins Florida. State Democratic Party spokesman Eric Jotkoff said despite Saturdays low turnout, the Democrats will meet the deadline.

Members of the executive committee are going to turn out in huge numbers, because they know its one of their few duties in the presidential campaign process and theyre committed to electing Barack Obama as the next President of the United States, to do that they are going to come out to ratify the slate of electors, said Jotkoff.

Florida Democrats have scheduled another meeting on August 20th to select their electors.
