Judge's ruling that ballots were illegally destroyed continues Broward election woes

Florida's Secretary of State plans to send an elections expert to the state's second-largest county during the upcoming elections to "ensure that all laws are followed," after a judge ruled that the Broward Supervisor of Elections illegally destroyed ballots cast in a 2016 congressional race.

Broward Circuit Judge Raag Singhal issued an order Friday determining that Supervisor Brenda Snipes' office improperly discarded thousands of ballots cast two years ago in the Democratic primary race between Tim Canova and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. In a ruling first reported by Politico, Singhal sided with Canova, who filed a lawsuit last year after he said Snipes ignored and then illegally obstructed his request to copy and inspect ballots.

I guess we'll see the resolution of this. Snipes says she followed the law by keeping electronic copies of the ballots, if not physical ones.

Is there something Canova thinks is in the physical ballots that cannot be determined by looking at electronic copies?

BTW, he lost, 56-43, by 13 points.

He's gonna run again in 2018 as an independent. Good luck with that.

Generally the law has moved towards electronic copies being as good as the original. Wisconsin is now 100% e-filing in most types of cases, they are converting old cases, and the hard copy of the file is destroyed.
