TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Florida officials are reviewing allegations of voter registration fraud against the state Democratic Party.
The Florida Department of State on Friday confirmed that it has forwarded complaints about alleged voter registration fraud against the Democrats and two other groups to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The groups are the Florida New Majority Education Fund and the National Council of La Raza/Democracia USA.
Neither state agency would comment on the extent of the allegations or on how many voter registration forms it involves.
A party spokeswoman said the Democrats were unaware of any complaints that they had registered someone who was ineligible. Spokesman Brannon Jordan said party volunteers go through extensive training.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement earlier this week launched an investigation into alleged fraud involving a company hired by the state’s Republican Party.
