Florida County Sends Voter Cards With Incorrect Names

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — It may not be the biggest voting misstep Florida's made, but sending cards with one voter's name on it to another person's home address is at least an embarrassing error.

The Supervisor of Elections office in Broward County just sent out more than a million cards to voters registered there, and some of the cards have the wrong names printed on them.

Brenda Snipes, the Broward County supervisor of elections, said the sanctity and security of the system is not in jeopardy.

"These cards are not part of the voting process. The card can't be used for fraud at the polls. You have to have a picture ID," Snipes said.

While the cards look like voter registration cards and include information like party affiliation, address, registration number and precinct information, the cards are actually voter information cards.

Snipes said she's not sure how many errant cards went out and that most appear to be concentrated in Davie, Florida.

Snipes' office is now working with the card printers in Fort Lauderdale to correct the problem.
