Florida Matters: Election Reforms

Floridians waiting six hours to vote and then the state taking four days to count all the ballots - if elections go wrong, how do you make them right?

A political science researcher and distinguished panel of election experts come together to discuss election reforms – on this week’s Florida Matters with host Carson Cooper.

Whether it’s due to the extra-long ballot, in some counties it was 10 pages long, or the reduction in early voting days from 14 to eight, Florida’s election process became the punch line for jokes nationwide much like the presidential election in 2000.

But if legislative committee hearings are any indication, Florida lawmakers are looking to revise state election laws – yet again.

Tell us what your voting experience like in November. How would you change election laws? Would you extend early voting? Maybe initiate online voting? Comment below or join the discussion on WUSF’s Facebook page.
