Plans for online voter registration are moving through the Florida legislature. Thursday, a Senate committee approved legislation that would implement the system. Leon County Supervisor of Elections Ion Sancho says it’s seen as the last great hurdle to overcome in the area of voter registration. “We’re just talking about making the process convenient to citizens using technology that they’re already using for almost every other kind of application that’s being done,” said Sancho. But some election supervisors across the state say it appears the governor’s office is trying to kill the bill.
Sancho and his colleagues are pushing back against a bill analysis by the Florida Department of State, which oversees elections.
That analysis raised concerns about cyber attacks, malfunctions, and fraud, calling for further review of the issue before Florida implements online registration.
