Final Stretch PACKAGE
NA T POP
Stoping at a Black Voices for Trump rally in Florida’s capital city, the Tump Campaign wrapped up another day of its fourth bus tour through the state.
NAT SOT: “We always love coming to Florida because you guys have common sense.”
On the bus, we spoke with Congressman Matt Gaetz, who says reaching minority voters has been a central focus of the President’s reelection bid.
SOT US Rep. Matt Gaetz
(R) Fort Walton Beach
“The policies of the Trump administration have benefited every community and we’re grateful for the diverse coalition we have.”
Kamala Harris also made stops in Jacksonville and Orlando this week.
Biden Campaign Surrogate Dianne Williams-Cox was in Jax and is confident in Biden’s support from minority voters.
SOT Dianne Williams-Cox
Biden Campaign Surrogate
“We need to unify. We need to come back together. We need to build back better and we can do it.”
Jake
“Neither the Biden or Trump campaign expects the late breaking New York Post story alleging the Vice President played a role in his son’s foreign business ties to make a difference in the final results.”
SOT Dianne Williams-Cox
Biden Campaign Surrogate
“I think many people are saying, ‘what article’? We’ve seen this played out before. You know, the Hilary emails, the ‘this’ and the ‘that’.”
American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp says social media’s response to the story is evidence the Trump campaign is fighting a two front battle.
SOT Matt Schlapp
Chairman, American Conservative Union
“It was basically almost impossible to find this article online as soon as it broke. Why? Because they’re trying to use their corporate money to make sure Joe Biden is elected President.”
Both the Trump and Biden campaigns have acknowledged the possibility of post election lawsuits in the event of a close race.
But both expect a smooth election here in Florida.

Vote Canvassing
Edius 1
Across Florida thousands of mail in ballots are already getting a second look by elected canvassing officials after voters mis marked their ballots, changed their minds or, as Mike Vasilinda tells us, chose to waste their votes.
Supers: Tallahassee
0:06-0:11 Sot: Mary Ann Lindley
Canvassing Board Member
0:17-0:21 Nat sot
0:26-0:32 Mike Vasilinda Standup
0:360:42 Sot: Holly Thompson
Leon Elections Staff
0:49-0:54 nat sot
1:00-1:03 Sot: Mary Ann Lindley
Canvassing Board Member
1:07-1:13 Sot: Mary Ann Lindley
Canvassing Board Member
1:18-1:23 Sot: Mark Earley
Leon Elections Supervisor
Runs 1:34
Anchor Tag: Under Florida law, Canvassing boards include the local Supervisor of Elections, A county judge, and the Chair of the County Commission, but substitutions are allowed if one of the officers is unavailable, or a candidate on the ballot.
Vote Canvassing Package Script:
Canvassing boards in every county are saving thousands of voters from their own mistakes.
Sot: Mary Ann Lindley
Canvassing Board Member
“The last one didn’t go through the machine because they put their I voted sticker on the ballot.”
Lesson number one: Don’t vote for more than one Candidate in a race.
Sot: Mary Ann Lindley
Canvassing Board Member
“Two people for this Presidential. Three people for this Presidential.
In this case, Joe Biden lost two votes. Trump one.
Mike Vasilinda Standup
“What’s clear after watching a canvassing board, is that its members go out of their way to make sure the intent of the voter is understood.”
Lesson two. Don’t use red ink
Sot: Holly Thompson
Leon Elections Staff
That’s basically invisible ink, so we’re very clear on how the voter intended to vote and we are able to remark it for them.
Lesson three: Try to be as clear as possible. On this ballot, the voter tried to erase their first choice.
Nat sot of board
“Looking at it closely, I think I would call it a a no vote.”
“It looks like they changed their mind.”
On this ballot, Joe Biden’s name was bubbled in…but  then there was a write in.
Nat sot:
“And then there’s written in Will Farrell, Will Farrell.”
 Will Farrell. The board voted to count the Biden vote.
Sot: Mary Ann Lindley
Canvassing Board Member
“So just be very solid. Those light little ball point pen marks are hard to read.”
And the final lesson, if you plan to vote by mail, don’t wait.
Sot: Mark Earley
Leon Elections Supervisor
“Don’t mail it to us any later than October 27th, but I would advise you if you are going through the mail, sooner than that.”
And if you do vote by mail, you can check online to see if your vote has been counted, and if not, fix any problems.
