The ream of evidence provided by Chairman Richard DeNapoli at the Broward Republican Party’s May 21st meeting regarding deceased voters on the Broward County rolls.
The Broward Republican Executive Committee (“BREC”) has determined that deceased people from Broward County are still listed as “active” voters according to the website of the Broward County Supervisor of Elections (“Broward SOE”), Dr. Brenda C. Snipes.
BREC officials conducted a search of the Social Security Death Index (“SSDI”) for Broward County for the 2011 calendar year as obtained through
www.GeneaologyBank.com. The search was conducted from May 13-19, 2012. The results revealed that 9,960 Broward County residents had passed away during the 2011 calendar year. BREC officials then checked 2,100 of these names without regard to party registration against the Broward SOE’s web site: 481 deceased individuals cross-referenced by name, birth date, city or zip code were still listed as “active” voters according to the Broward SOE. This is 23 percent of the deceased persons examined.
BREC officials undertook this detailed examination to help protect the integrity of the local election process. We are forwarding our evidence of these 481 deceased yet still “active” voters so that the Broward SOE has ample time to conduct a thorough investigation and remove the names of deceased voters from the registration rolls prior to the 2012 primary and general elections. All voters want a fair and honest election and we know that Broward SOE, Dr. Brenda C. Snipes, will correct this oversight. We hope to work with her on this endeavor.
BREC Chairman Richard DeNapoli presented these findings at the May 21st BREC meeting at the Sheraton Suites Cypress Creek hotel located at 555 NW 62nd Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33309.
