Wired PR News.com – Recent reports of misleading robocalls to some residents of Florida have surfaced and made some recall memories of voter disenfranchisement allegations in the state in the 2000 election. As reported by the South Florida Sun Sentinel, the fake robocall voice, who stated her name to be Brenda Snipes, told voters that they could cast their vote over the phone, an untrue fact. Other reports have also surfaced regarding various tactics used to scam voters in different areas across the nation including distributing information about different voting dates for Republicans and Democrats.
In the 2000 presidential election, many residents in Florida expressed concerns that their votes were not counted, which led to a halted recall that purportedly changed the turn of the election outcome for what some believe was a stolen election. The present events have led many to fear that mass disenfranchisement of voters might occur on Election Day that will leave numerous citizens without the opportunity to have their vote counted in one of the most significant elections to date.
Voters are encouraged to double check their ballot information when submitting, and report any problems to the proper authorities for their area.
