    This is separate and distinct from the South Florida Democrats' case for general extension of early voting in three counties.

      What a mess. We need mandatory federal guidelines to eliminate voter suppression.

      •  In-Person Absentee Voting This Afternoon (1+ / 0-)

        in Dade to request and cast.  Broward will accept in-person absentee ballots, but NOT allow requests.  This is a work-around, not a victory of the lawsuit, which asked for an extension of early voting at the polls (as I understand) in three counties, including Palm Beach.  PB will also allow in-person absentee voting today.

        The decision to doing in-person voting was made in Miami Dade Saturday night, by election officials, acting independently of the lawsuit.  Provisions to do this already exist in state law.

        A loophole in a state law that eliminated early voting the Sunday before Election Day allows elections supervisors to accept in-person absentee ballots through 7 p.m. Tuesday — including Sunday, at the elections supervisor’s discretion.

        Justice Department is monitoring Miami-Dade early voting.  I take it, it expects abuse.
