And those are only the ones the Department Of Homeland Security will let you know about!

Florida (The Gaslamp Post) – After a state-wide investigation into some 2600 names of potential unlawful voters, the state of Florida has accounted for 198 individuals who have either voted illegally in the past or who are on the voter rolls but are not legally eligible to vote, according to the Florida Secretary of State.

The investigation consisted of a nearly 5 month project in which voting officials compared driver’s license data with voter registrations, in order to determine voter eligibility.  Throughout it all, the Department of Homeland Security had stood in the way, denying state officials access to citizenship records, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Initially the comprised list seemed full of errors but of the 2600 suspected names, many were able to produce proof that they were legal citizens, eligible to vote.

Governor Rick Scott has accused the Obama administration of intentionally hampering his states efforts at maintaining voter integrity.  The DOJ, as well as several “voter’s rights” advocacy groups had filed lawsuits claiming that the state’s voter ID laws were racist and an effort to “purge” potential Democrat voters out of the voter registry.

The state said two weeks ago that it had identified the voters but did not release the names until after 5 p.m. Wednesday, saying consultations with the Department of Homeland Security accounted for the delay. There was no explanation for why the earlier total of 207 names had shrunk to 198.

Orange County Supervisor of Elections Bill Cowles said he got the list too late Wednesday to review it. But he said the names must be checked and his office must attempt to contact each registered voter. If that is unsuccessful, the county must publish their names in the newspaper and wait for them to come forward..

“If they respond within 30 days [and confirm they are or are not citizens], it’s over with,” he said. “If they don’t respond, we have to publish, and they would have another 30 days. And that would take it past the election.”

It is also a third-degree felony for a noncitizen to register to vote.
