Typos Could Keep Some From Voting

September 10th, 2008 by flanews

Typos could keep some Florida voters from casting a ballot on Election Day. A state law requiring voter registration information to be checked with state and federal databases was reinstated this month. The law will deny people from casting a ballot if their social security or drivers license numbers dont match the information on the databases. Secretary of State Spokeswoman Jennifer Davis said its not too late to correct your registration information.

We have processes in place right now were the voter can correct any typographical errors. We actually have a process even before the prospective voters involved were the bureau corrects any typographical errors they can identify and then if its not resolved its sent to the county and they notify the prospective voter and then they have a chance to correct it up to two days after Election Day, said Davis.

The Secretary of States Office will also send letters to people who dont have the correct information on their voter registration forms.
