Fraud Allegations: An Update from Supervisor Hays - Monday, November 15, 2021

As you may have recently heard, some individuals have questioned the accuracy of our active voter lists. 

Upon hearing these concerns, we encouraged those individuals to provide our office with the names of anyone suspected of any inappropriate elections behavior.

We wish to thank those citizens who have submitted names of people suspected to be erroneously on the active voter roll or whom may have violated other aspects of the Florida Election Code.  We continue to welcome submission of names if one has good reason to suspect the name should not be on our active voter listing.

Our staff has examined these submissions and so far, have determined each person in question is indeed legitimately on the active voter list.

We have also received a small list of records which we are researching in partnership with the Florida Division of Elections to determine the appropriate registration status of those persons.

Other submissions included names of people suspected of voting in more than one county.  Closer examination of those voter records determined these suspicions to be without foundation.

Our office is committed to maintaining all our voter registration database in complete compliance with Florida Statutes as has been our policy for many years.  The Florida Statutes are quite involved and may be perplexing to the persons not accustomed to working with them.

Please feel welcome to visit our website and sign up for a tour of our facility with one of our Certified Florida Election Professionals.  We are happy to show you the details of our operation and answer your questions about our processes.

 

Our Democracy, Our Priority: A Message From the Florida Supervisors of Elections--Wesley Wilcox - Tuesday, November 2, 2021

Our Democracy, Our Priority

The Great American Experiment, our cherished democracy, is under threat. Our nation is only as strong as the faith our citizens have that their voice, their vote, has a say in our government. In this hour, public trust in our elections is being systematically undermined, to the detriment of all Americans.

As election professionals, we have sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Our Constitution is built upon the idea that “we the people” choose our government. We put that idea into practice through elections. It is the foundation and core unifying principle of our democracy.

As the official trusted sources of election information and experts in our fields, we continuously strive to debunk false claims, and ensure voters have access to accurate election information. We are dedicated to the cause of election integrity, ensuring that every eligible voter’s ballot is counted accurately and that no fraud takes place. But false claims of fraud do not strengthen our elections. Instead, they degrade confidence in the institutions, and discourage citizen participation in our democracy.

During and after the 2020 Presidential Election, the integrity of our democracy has been challenged by misinformation, disinformation, and malinformation that sows discord and undermines trust in America’s electoral process. Many of us have been threatened by our fellow citizens who have been led astray by these deceptions.

Instead of standing idly by, we ask all candidates and elected officials to tone down the rhetoric and stand up for our democracy. We ask that you work with us to understand the safeguards implemented to ensure elections are conducted fairly, securely, and accurately.

In the Gettysburg Address, President Lincoln proclaimed that the American people must dedicate themselves to ensuring that “Government of the people, by the people, for the people must not perish from the Earth.” It is through elections that government by the people is accomplished. To this end, we call on officials at all levels of government to commit themselves to the goal of fighting falsehoods and strengthening voter trust. We can rise to this challenge. Our democracy depends on it.
