State voter purge a case of misplaced priorities

Statement from Deirdre Macnab, President, League of Women Voters of Florida

By Deirdre Macnab

     Florida’s controversial attempt to screen voter rolls for non-U.S. citizens has yielded 207 voters who may not be eligible. While spending precious time and resources trying to unearth a possible 207 unlikely voters out of over 11 million in total, many media sources report that Florida is well behind its 2008 new voter registration numbers — partly due to legislatively imposed obstacles on voter registration efforts.

     This is a case of terribly mistaken priorities. With less than four weeks before the registration deadline, the League has volunteers across the state seeking to include all eligible voters, and a special website, www.BeReadyToVote.org, to help register, update and inform voters before Election Day.
