– In Florida, Miami, 10400 Northwest Eighth Avenue, there have been lines there since 6:30 and the machines are down. Also in Miami Dade, the majority of the calls we’re getting are about absentee ballot issues. I think Miami Dade has an absentee ballot problem because we are now getting calls from folks saying that they didn’t get their absentee ballots in time, so they’re taking the ballot down to the poll location and to the boards of election and trying to file their absentee ballot in person. Remember, if you are a registered voter prior to 2008 the match does not apply to you. The board of elections and the local poll locations comparing your ID to an ID they have in their database. If you are a registered voter before 2008 it does not apply to you. And remember the address on your residence and the address of your voter registration card do not have to match. If you are being thrown out because of a match in Florida, demand to file a provisional ballot. There is over an hour and a half wait to vote in some precincts in Miami Dade. Some have only one machine.
-In South Carolina., they’re telling people to vote the democratic ticket and the President separately. Folks are worried that if they vote twice their votes are going to be counted out.
-There are reports about Florida’s no match law, which prevents voter applicants from becoming registered to vote if the state can’t match their driver’s license, their Florida ID or the last four digits of their social security number to a record in the state’s databases. Two things Florida voters need to know about the match: First, the no match law does not affect voters who are registered by September 8th, 2008. So if you were registered before the last Presidential election, the no match vote does not apply to you. Second, the address on your driver’s license does not need to match the address you used to register to vote.
-You cannot vote online in Cleveland, Ohio. You cannot vote online in Florida. You cannot vote online in Virginia. Any ad that tells you you can is simply fraudulent.
