Purifying the Voter Rolls in Florida

Florida state flagThere are 11,583,367 registered voters in Florida. That’s according to the Florida Division of Elections. Of that total, 41 percent are registered Democrats, 36 percent are Republicans, 3 percent are listed with marginal parties, and 21 percent with no party affiliation at all. That adds up to 101 percent, but those are the figures published on the Division of Election’s web site so we may as well take them as satisfying close to reality.

Last year, officials in Florida, eagerly investigating voter fraud, announced they had found 180,000 noncitizens on the voter registration rolls. Wow! That’s a whopping 1.55 percent. And,  as the Florida officials like to say, there should be zero percent voter fraud. Actually, upon comparing the names of these suspected fraudulent voters with a federal immigration database, the number of noncitizens registered to vote turns out to be in the hundreds, not thousands. And now those hundreds are under review.

Christ Cate, from the Florida secretary of state’s office, said, “We’ve already identified 209, and we know firsthand from the 2000 election, how important even one vote can be in an election.” We’ve done the math and 209 noncitizen voters out of 11,583,367 is .0018 percent. I guess we can’t say Wow! about that number. Yes, we do remember that Florida election of 2000, but .0018 percent is really very, very, very small. (more…)

Plenty of opinions here on Critical Pages, plus a lot of facts, but no alternative facts. Please don't misunderstand, we do like alternative facts -- after all, we're all writers here -- but we prefer the word fiction. It's shorter and everyone understands what we mean when say we're writing fiction.
