So far, three bills have been filed for the 2013 Legislative Session related to elections:
In Miami-Dade, the County Mayor has appointed a citizen’s Mayor’s Election Advisory Group. The Miami Herald reported on their first meeting. Their next meeting is December 14th, with an “after-action” report expected from the Supervisor of Elections with reports already surfacing that precinct distribution may have led to some of the issues.
The Sun Sentinel reports that legislative committee meetings have begun, but, to no one’s surprise, so far there appears to be partisan disagreement about the reasons for the delays in ballot counting in parts of the state. The Secretary of State has begun a tour of elections offices, but the incoming Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections has already questioned the effectiveness of the department’s approach, according to the Tampa Bay Times. TBT’s PolitiFact also looked at the Secretary’s recent comment about turnout.
