Senate Passes Bill That Could Expand Early Voting

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Early voting days and sites could be expanded under a bill passed by the Senate.

The Senate amended a House elections bill (7013) on Wednesday before passing it 26-13.

It would allow supervisors of elections to hold up to 14 days of early voting instead of the eight now in law. It also expands the number of locations supervisors could hold early voting.

Democrats opposed the bill saying it didn’t go far enough to fix elections problems.

The Legislature is attempting to make several changes to address complaints about long lines and counting delays during the 2012 election. The bill now goes back to the House.
