Ken Detzner Outlines Steps to Restore Voter Confidence
Florida supervisors need more flexibility in the days and locations they can set up elections, highlights the message from Secretary of State Ken Detzner on a vast number of changes needed to improve voting in Florida.
Certain unnamed supervisors failed -- Detzner charged in his review of the 2012 contest -- to “prepare effectively and it reflected poorly on the entire state.”
‘One county or precinct that does not properly serve its voters does a disservice for the entire state and has the potential to cloud the positive steps taken by the rest of the state to conduct an accessible and efficient election,” Detzner stated without making any recommendation on any officeholder.
“Supervisors of elections and county commissions must take it upon themselves to oversee elections through responsible leadership and efficient administration.”
In his anticipated 12-page report back to Gov. Rick Scott, Detzner noted that what can be easily handled by some smaller counties doesn’t fit for larger counties such as Palm Beach or Miami-Dade.
