COMPLIANCE ENGINE RULES
"The DOS must verify the authenticity of information provided by a voter when they change party affiliation."
Are there safeguards in place to prevent someone else from changing a voter's party affiliation?
How do we ensure compliance?
WHEN a change of party affiliation is received THEN the DOS validates the authenticity of the request.
What happens if a new voter forgets to designate a party affiliation, or if they want to change party affiliation after registering?
If a new voter fails to designate party affiliation they must be registered without party affiliation.
The Supervisor of Elections (SOE) must notify the voter by mail that he or she has been registered without party affiliation and that the voter may change party affiliation as below.
When a registered voter wants to change party affiliation, the voter must notify his or her SOE or other voter registration official by submitting a voter registration application.
When a request to change party affiliation is received it may be accepted as valid only after the Department of State (DOS), Division of Elections (DOE) has verified the authenticity or nonexistence of the driver license number, the Florida identification card number, or the last four digits of the social security number provided by the voter.
HOW DOES THE COMPLIANCE ENGINE ENSURE DATA INTEGRITY?
ALERTS the DOE to authenticate a voter's party affiliation change request within a predefined timeline
ESCALATES to DOS personnel if the DOE has not authenticated a voter's party affiliation change request within a predefined timeline
ENFORCES by holding the DOE accountable if a voter's request to change party affiliation has not been authenticated after alert within a predefined timeline
