Audit finds 2018 election in Broward County was marred by waste, extra votes, unnecessary delays
South Florida Sun Sentinel ^ | 05/26/20 | Anthony Man

Posted on 05/26/2020 6:08:29 AM PDT by Moonman62

Multiple shortcomings contributed to a problem-plagued 2018 election in Broward County, many of which were on public display while a national cable TV audience waited for Florida to recount votes in elections for governor and U.S. Senate. A controversial audit 18 months later is now detailing even more failings.

Among the issues raised in the audit:

Half of Broward County’s election precincts reported more ballots cast than the number of voters. Backlogs in processing mail ballots snarled reporting of results.

Confusing ballot design may have led thousands of voters to inadvertently skip an important contest.

Money was wasted on unneeded blank ballots, which weren’t adequately tracked and were eventually destroyed.

After election day, auditors found the recount was plagued by poor planning, inadequate staffing and equipment, and poor quality control.

Extra votes: Auditors said a little more than half of the county’s voting precincts — 293 out of 577 — had a combined total of 885 more tabulated votes than voters.

Why does it not surprise me that a LIEberal run BLUE county has voting irregularities?

Next question: Will there be indictments? Trials? Convictions? Jail sentences?

Florida has always been a dumpster fire in regards to elections. And not just in regards to fraud, in regards to just anything resembling competency.

A 100% turnout is suspicious and over half the precincts had more than a 100% turnout. The crooks at the Sun Sentinel are acting like it wasn’t a big deal because the margin over 100% wasn’t all that great.

From the article:

“It goes without saying that November 2018 election night was chaotic so there’s to be no quibbling over charts, the data or their informed interpretation,” Antonacci wrote in a response to the audit.

But, he added, the issues detailed by Melton’s team “do not change the outcome of any race.”

Well, since the Elections Supervisor assures me that the outcomes of races were not affected, I fell so much better about their incompetence.

more ballots cast than the number of voters

Only 50%-60% of Registered Voters actually Vote!, that means that about 40% of these VOTES in these Precincts are FRAUDULENT!!! Time for the Indelible Ink on the Thumb for Voting, with Strict ID Enforcement.

Nationally, we get maybe 60% turnout. It would be an interesting study to see the difference between red and blue turnout. My guess based on observation... red follows national trend. Blue has greater than 100% turnout in stronghold areas.

Not Florida. Dade, Palm Beach and especially Broward Counties. You don’t see this kind of crap in Florida’s other 64 counties.....and its not even so much Dade county.

There needs to be extra special scrutiny by the state on Broward and Palm Beach counties.

Ballot box stuffing is the main reason democrat co trolled areas always report last. They need to know how many votes they need to steal the election.

Only 800 over voter rolls doesn’t even come close to the fraud. No way 100% of voters cast ballots much leas more than 100%.

Easy to know where to investigate fraud. How many elections have to be stolen before republicans grow a pair.

That is the way the Orleans Parish in NOLA has been fixing elections for years.

It is how Senator whatsherface won (STOLE) election back in 1996!

Orange jumpsuit jail time for the perps?

MAYBE?

Yes, isn’t the typical turnout in the 50-65% range?

LOOK AT THIS re: Broward Vote-By-Mail

Page 29
4. Deficiencies in the Vote-By-Mail Chain of Custody Process Resulted in a Lackof Assurance that All Vote-By-Mail Ballots Received are ProcessedAccordingly.

We identified inadequate documentation accounting for Vote-By-Mail ballots. We found that batches of Vote-By-Mail ballots received are not individually and adequately tracked from receipt to tabulation. As shown in Figure 8, daily Vote-By-Mail receipt logs listed total mail pieces received by day, but not each receipt, where it was received, or who received it.

The Democrat county has “problems”. The problem is Democrats are corrupt.

Well, if there are precincts in Florida which report vote totals higher than the voting age population, it’s because they learned it from Philadelphia.
