Lawyers For Florida Democratic Candidates Object To Non-Citizens Vote Being Denied

According to a transcript obtained by Fox News, the attorneys for the Florida Democratic gubernatorial and Senate candidates objected Friday to the rejection of a provisional ballot cast by a non-citizen.

This is a good reason for having an official picture ID’s to vote. They do not discriminate against anyone. They do not work to suppress anyone’s right to vote. They are just common sense. Citizens vote. Non-citizens do not vote.

The incident occurred during a canvassing meeting Friday in Palm Beach County, where provisional ballots were being examined. According to the draft transcript of the meeting, taken by a court reporter hired by the Florida Republican Party, a provisional ballot was ordered excluded from the count, as it came from a non-U.S. citizen.

“First one of these we’ve seen,” said Judge August Bonativa.

“Not a U.S. citizen, not counted.” said Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher, according to the transcript.

It was at this point where lawyers representing Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum and Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., issued objections — although they did not give reasons for those objections. The objections were noted, but the vote was still not counted. More

The fact that a non-citizen made it to a polling place and actually cast a ballot is already a considered a catastrophic failure, regardless if the vote counts or not.

Nelson distanced himself from the objection to non-citizens votes not being counted only after it became publicly known. Should these districts be counted now? Way too much corruption.
