Will Weatherford: Scott's Election Reform Proposals 'Realistic'
House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, called Scott’s recommended election reforms “realistic."
“I applaud the governor for developing realistic solutions to fix a serious problem,” Weatherford stated in a release.
“The House will take a close look at these recommendations as we determine the best steps to take to resolve the issue.
“I thank the governor for leading and listening to citizens and election officials at all levels. I look forward to working with him as we make the changes necessary to ensure Florida has one of the best election systems in the nation.”
Scott released a statement Thursday backing county elections supervisors who have recently asked legislators to provide more flexibility in early voting locations, reducing the words allowed by lawmakers for constitutional amendments and expanding the number of days for early voting.
