Florida’s top election official is starting his push to get election supervisors to back a plan to remove non-U.S. citizens from the state’s voter rolls.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott knows what it’s like to be told that he’s not a registered voter. In a radio interview Thursday, Scott said he was forced to cast a provisional ballot because election officials thought he was dead.
Florida’s local election supervisors on Wednesday sounded skeptical, and even distrustful, of a push by the state to remove thousands of potential non-U.S. citizens from the voting rolls just months before the critical 2012 elections.
