Pinellas County Elections Supervisor Deborah Clark [Republican] says shell ignore a directive on absentee ballot returns from Secretary of State Ken Detzner in the March 11 Congressional District 13 special election.
In a message to Detzner on Monday, Clark said shell go ahead with plans to allow voters to drop off absentee ballots at eight sites across the county not just at her own three offices in the election to replace the late Rep. C.W. Bill Young.
Disagreeing with Detzners interpretation of Florida elections law, she said the law authorizes the extra dropoff points. In addition, she said, they add to voter convenience and save taxpayer dollars.
Detzners Nov. 25 directive told supervisors that voters who receive mail ballots but drop them off in person rather than mailing them back must take them to the elections supervisors office.
That generated protests from Democrats of voter suppression by the Gov. Rick Scott administration Detzner is a Scott appointee and objections from supervisors including Craig Latimer in Hillsborough, a Democrat, and Brian Corley in Pasco, a Republican.
Both use numerous additional dropoff spots besides their own offices in their elections.

“voter suppression” - bull. The only thing being suppressed is Democrat criminality.
Absentee ballots is military with Florida home of record.
When a Democrat shows up with a bag of "found" ballots, a Republican should immediately say "Oh yeah, we found these ballots in the garage," and dump them in with all the other ballots.
Hey, lets just let people drop them off at their local SEIU, NAACP, DNC and Planned Parenthood offices! What could possibly go wrong???.........
Republicans are part of the problem. Vote conservative.
Another republican doing a dirty job against another republican ao that democrats don’t have to.
bttt they don’t even try to hide it anymore
