During the past election, some residents waited in line for up to six hours to cast their vote in the state of Florida, bringing back memories of the hanging chads debacle in 2000.
Florida’s Governor Rick Scott is planning to introduce measures to try to address some of the state’s voting issues, and he announces the steps he intends to take on Starting Point this morning.
Gov. Scott outlines three main objectives of voting reform: reducing the length of ballots,allowing supervisors more flexibility in the size of polling locations and reexamining the number of early voting days.
“People are frustrated in our state,” Gov. Scott acknowledges. “We’ve got to restore confidence in our election.”
The Republican Governor, who has been given an “A” rating by the NRA, also discusses the organization’s response to Friday’s tragedy at Sandy Hook elementary.
