This Florida Politico article shows what may happen if the above steps are not followed carefully!

  • “More than 35,500 vote-by-mail ballots didn’t count in Florida’s recent primary, rejected because of missed deadlines or technical flaws.”
  • “Rejections accounted for about 1.5 percent of the total vote.”
  • “Nearly 66 percent of the rejected absentee ballots were disqualified because they arrived after Florida’s 7 p.m. Election Day deadline.”
  • “This could be a huge problem in November. We could exceed 100,000 vote-by-mail ballots that don’t count.”

Trump won Florida by fewer than 113,000 votes four years ago in an election in which 28 percent of the state’s 9.5 million voters cast their ballots by mail. This year the projected VBM ballots could double that amount.
