Florida authorities are reviewing allegations of voter registration fraud leveled against the Florida Democratic Party just days before the deadline to register new voters. The Florida Department of State on Friday confirmed that it has forwarded complaints about voter registration fraud that have been filed against the Democrats, as well as two other groups — the Florida New Majority Education Fund and the National Council of La Raza/Democracia USA. State election officials, as well as the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, provided few details on the complaints, including whether it is limited to just one county or how many voter registration forms are at issue. FDLE will look at the complaints and determine whether a criminal investigation should be launched.
Lee County Supervisor of Elections Sharon Harrington confirmed that a complaint regarding voter registration forms had come from her county, but she refused to answer other questions. A spokeswoman for the Florida Democratic Party said the party was unaware of any complaints.
“We have no information to suggest that any of our volunteers registered a person known to be ineligible,” said the spokeswoman, Brannon Jordan. “Our volunteers go through a rigorous and extensive training process to ensure they comply with all laws when registering voters. We will continue to take every step to abide by every applicable rule and regulation.”
