Florida – absentee voting has started! A LOT of your neighbors have already voted, have you?
Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s refusal to extend his state’s deadline for voter registration in response to Hurricane Matthew is leading to fears that perhaps tens of thousands of Floridians could be kept from registering, potentially impacting the presidential race.
The deadline to register is Tuesday, but with 1.5 million Floridians under mandatory evacuation orders, the Hillary Clinton campaign had urged Scott to extend it. He declined. CBS is reporting that it sounds like this is just the Clinton campaign picking on a Republican Gov.
“Everybody has had a lot of time to register,” Scott, a Republican and staunch Donald Trump supporter, said Thursday night. “On top of that, we’ve got lots of opportunities to vote: Early voting, absentee voting and Election Day. So I don’t intend to make any changes.”
Asked at a Friday morning appearance whether his decision was aimed at helping Trump, Scott said: “I’m focused on a storm. I”m focused on making sure … you don’t lose a life.”
What are voters Saying:
- I’m not a Trump fan, but honestly, at this point I’d vote for anyone willing to secure the border, balance the budget, and kill the terrorists.
- At this point I’d vote for anyone willing to do one of those things.
- No more politicians for me. Build the wall, deport the illegals , Take care of our Vets. get rid of common core, fix the tax code.
