COMPLIANCE ENGINE RULES
REMOVING INELIGIBLE VOTERS
"When information is received that a voter is ineligible, the supervisor must follow established procedures to confirm ineligibility prior to removing the voter from the rolls."
"WHEN a voter is verified ineligible THEN they are removed from the voter rolls"
In order to be eligible to register and vote in Florida, a person must be 18 years of age, a citizen of the United States of America, a legal resident of the State of Florida, and a legal resident of the county in which that person seeks to be registered.
If the department or supervisor receives information that a registered voter is ineligible the supervisor must adhere to the procedures set forth in Florida statutes prior to the removal of a registered voter’s name from the statewide voter registration system.
The supervisor of the county in which the voter is registered shall:
Notify the registered voter of his or her potential ineligibility by mail within 7 days after receipt of notice or information.
The notice must include a statement that failure to respond within 30 days after receipt of the notice may result in a determination of ineligibility and in removal of the registered voter’s name from the statewide voter registration system.
Any voter whose name has been removed from the statewide voter registration system pursuant to a determination of ineligibility may appeal that determination under the provisions of FS 98.0755.
Any voter whose name was removed from the statewide voter registration system on the basis of a determination of ineligibility who subsequently becomes eligible to vote must reregister in order to have his or her name restored to the statewide voter registration system.
