LEE COUNTY -
Poor record keeping is what's leading
to potential fraud in the elections system. And election supervisors
say registering non-citizens will continue until they get more help.
Officials we spoke to say non U.S. citizens are voting in Lee and Collier counties.
"If there is a change by one vote and somebody's
voted that really has no right to be voting," said Lee County Supervisor
of Elections Sharon Harrington.
Nearly 100 registered are now under investigation for possible voter fraud.
"It could change the whole complexion of an election," Harrington said.
We found those 100 people after reviewing jury
excusal forms. We compared the names of those who said they couldn't
serve because they were not U.S. citizens to those listed on Florida's
voter registration rolls.
"I was surprised that there were quite that many," Harrington said.
So how is this happening?
In some cases, human error got them on the voter rolls.
We found one Naples resident, who clearly marked she was not a U.S. citizen, but was registered anyway.
But the NBC2 Investigators also found many of
those registered were signed up while at the Tax Collector's Office
getting a drivers license. (Continues here)
