Broward GOP Claims Supervisor of Elections Is Trying to "Disenfranchise" Republican Voters
Republican State Rep. George Moraitis doesn't have an early voting location in his district either, and although it would be a little tough to spread out the 16 early voting spots in the districts to all 18 of Florida's House members that cover parts of Broward, the complaint still exists.
"Not having early voting locations in this area serves to disenfranchise all voters in this area, while especially disenfranchising the Republican voters," writes BREC chairman Richard DeNapoli.
Well, here's a map of the Senate districts in Broward -- remember, redistricting hasn't even taken place yet -- in which you'll notice Bogdanoff's district, 25, starts on the east side of Fort Lauderdale and goes up to Juno Beach (the county line is designated by the red dashes):
DeNapoli's letter cites some statistics on the number of Republicans who live in the district and corresponds them to Broward Republican statistics -- although only about 36 percent of her voters were Broward residents as of '09.
Not mentioned in the letter is the fact that four senators and seven representatives who serve at least part of Broward don't have early voting locations in their districts either -- four Democratic representatives and three Republican representatives, as well as three Democratic senators and Bogdanoff, the only Republican senator.
Anyway, here's the letter.
