Broward County, in Florida, has been making national news for election-related problems for at least two decades now.
Fortunately, this Democratic bastion can elect a new Supervisor of Elections soon. This is an important decision because Florida has more than its share of razor-thin election results. The Sunshine State is also considered a battleground state in presidential elections.
So, registering voters, making it easy for them to vote, counting their votes, and counting them accurately are basic but important functions that Broward County election chiefs have not always mastered.
Ruth Carter-Lynch is one of five Democrats running in the August primary. The winner will most likely become the next Supervisor of Elections here.
This Democracy Chronicles article gives Carter-Lynch the space to tell people why registering people to vote is so important to her.
