Jennings et al v Elections Canvassing Commission et al

Formal Letter To The Court of Appeal Clerk requesting this letter to Congress be filed in connection with the Jennings proceedings


EFF and a coalition of voting integrity groups, representing Sarasota County voters, filed suit in state court in Tallahassee asking for a re-vote in Florida's 13th congressional district. The suit alleges that thousands of citizens were disenfranchised when massive under-votes plagued the tight congressional race between Democrat Christine Jennings and Republican Vern Buchanan. In a high-profile battle over former Rep. Katherine Harris' seat, the result was decided by 363 votes, yet over 18,000 ballots cast on Sarasota County's e-voting machines registered no vote in the race, an exceptional anomaly in the State.

This is Chairwoman McDonalds letter to the clerk of court requesting this letter be filed in connection with the court proceedings.
