August 13, 2012: How Much Does Honest and Fair Voting Matter To Voters?

By Sylvia Gurinsky

Florida's primary election is tomorrow, following days of early voting and absentee ballot mailings.

Again, there have been issues with voter fraud in Miami-Dade County - where arrests relating to absentee ballot fraud have been made.

There has also been angst across the state over the purge of voters who are not supposed to be on the rolls - a purge that's included voters who are supposed to be able to vote.

Look for more anxiety and shenanigans - sometimes together - as the general election draws near. And look out for them, too.

There are those who sometimes wonder whether Floridians care enough about cleaning up voter fraud, or reforming the system fairly.

If they don't, they should be asked this question: Do you really want another 2000 election?

If not, they should have their say - and make sure all Florida voters who are legally registered can do the same, honestly and fairly.
