They had more days to vote. The laws were recently changed to shorten the amount of time people had to early vote because studies showed that the party that is not in power in Florida were voting early in larger numbers than the party that is in power.
Maybe voters were worried that if they voted absentee their votes wouldn't be counted considering what has happened in Florida previously. In fact, those who voted on Election Day in Florida also had doubts if their votes were actually counted to the correct candidate.
If you decide, as a state, to offer early voting, then you must properly staff the voting stations. The previous governors were able to do that properly so why can't the current governor handle that? It's a poor excuse to exclude voters. I wonder who was behind the letters that some registered voters received in Florida about a month ago telling them that they were not registered (when indeed they were) and that if they went to vote they would be arrested. Stuff like this in our country is disgusting.
Are you saying there weren't lines for early voting in 2004 or 2008?
So are you saying that republicans just took control of the govt down there, or that early voting just began to favor democrats?
What I am saying is that former governors and state lawmakers set up early voting to assist ALL voters regardless of political party. The Governor and lawmakers that are there now changed the laws to shorten the time period because they saw it was in their party's best interest. Obviously the current Republican governor and people in the state government is a bit more interested in helping his party than past governors and assemblies of state representatives.
Is that really so difficult to understand or are you now going to ask another ridiculous question? I am pretty sure everyone else caught the meaning of what was said in previous posts quite clearly.
