PART I: Investigative Report — Voter Fraud in Florida
Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Dr. Brenda C. Snipes has adopted a logo which reads: “Vote with confidence;” unfortunately, if past elections under her tutelage are an indicator, we are in for an array of disenfranchisement tactics aimed to skew the electoral process in a fraudulent and partisan fashion. In subsequent articles, these practices will be elaborated on with the fervent expectation that voter awareness will not only condemn the contemplation of such activity, but will rise to prevent it.
Voter integrity and potential voter fraud has been a major topic of concern for many watchdog groups in Florida for quite some time. In my investigative Report in November of 2012, after the last presidential election, I interviewed a whistleblower from Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office of Brenda C. Snipes, who revealed to me that many election laws were broken when:
Election officials were assisting voters who were not handicapped and were using special unauthorized forms to do this
There were obvious irregularities in the absentee ballots
There was a lack of scanning machines during the voting process, despite the fact that there were plenty in storage that could have been used.
Dr. Snipes duties and obligations as an elected official, are to uphold voter integrity in a non-partisan fashion, ensuring that no voter is disenfranchised. This investigative report will reveal that not only have voter records not been maintained properly, Brenda Snipes has not been in compliance with the law.
On June 27, 2016, a lawsuit was filed against Brenda Snipes, Supervisor of Elections, after her refusal to discuss a resolution with the American Civil Rights Union in regard to its claim of potential violations of federal election law in Broward County, Florida.
In this case, Andrea Bellitto and the American Civil Rights Union vs. Brenda Snipes, Supervisor of Elections, allegations put forth reveal that:
Snipes has been negligent in maintaining accurate voter rolls and removing names of ineligible voters from the official list of voters by reason of death or change of residence of the registrant as pursuant to federal election law.
Over the past several election cycles the voter rolls maintained by Dr. Snipes have either more total registrants than eligible voting citizens or an implausibly high number
Approximately 106% of the citizens of voting age were registered to vote and cast a ballot in Broward County. Snipes in this case, received information regarding over 200 registered voters in one community in Coconut Creek who have either died or who no longer reside in the community.
The National Voters Right Act 1965 requires that Dr. Snipes shall complete, not later than 90 days prior to the date of a primary or general election for federal office, any program that systematically removes the name of ineligible voters from that official lists of eligible voters.
My investigation reveals that Dr. Snipes’ has received citizen complaints to clean up the voter rolls dating back to October of 2015, also followed by a November 2015 Public Records request. However, there has been no resolution to them.
Surprisingly, another watchdog organization, True The Vote, in its 16 Florida County investigation, discovered at least 36,000 voter registrations that had serious problems. Their investigation uncovered over 15,400 sets of duplicated voter registrations, 221 potential cases of double voting, 2,400 cases of voters over the age of 105 displaying recent periods of inactivity, 185 cases of illegally claimed residential addresses located at commercial mailbox stores, 500+ cases of incomplete voter registrations, 2,500+ cases of incomplete voter registrations entered into the Florida voter roll that were missing legal names.
Dr. Snipes, S.O.E., holds a Constitutional Office in the State of Florida and has taken an oath to: “conduct successful elections in compliance with the law to ensure that every eligible voter can exercise the right to vote, while providing a non-partisan, stable and positive environment built upon respect, growth, creativity and freethinking.” It is a felony to willfully submit any false voter registration information, in accordance with F.S.104.011(2).
No voter in the State of Florida should be disenfranchised and Ms. Snipes has a responsibility to her constituents to abide by the law. Perhaps, the Broward County voter rolls will be cleaned up, as have been in other state counties. However, time is of the essence, as we have a critical presidential election in November; the time for action is now. We must anticipate and challenge any protocol or activity that enables fraud or partisanship behavior and hold Dr. Snipes and her staff accountable.

I remember when JEB Bush appointed Dr. Snipes to the Supervisor of Election post. As a newly retired Area Superintendent, I was confident that she would do a good job. And she pulled that department out of the ditch which was left in shambles by Oliphant. By the findings of the investigators reveals a lack of attention to details. That comes from the top down. Now, far be it for me to accuse her of the “D” word. Would it be enough to say “too many senior moments”? I would hesitate to say she is guilty of purposely sabotaging the voting process. This is a demanding second career, perhaps she should retire before it gets ugly. However, she has signed up for re-election and has high name recognition. It would be smarter to go quietly into the night. Just an aside, I hope she does retire. We need more volunteers at Stranahan House!!

Sorry about spelling but it does what it’s wants

I really am glad to see you are telling truth about this. Giving ID just so they can vote Hillary is wrong . All felions voting in va that is wrong. We as Americans feel the Government has cheated and failed us. Give us back God,our flag,and freedom is speech back. Hope you can get other states to do this. We need Trump.

This woman must be fired NOW, and replaced by someone honest.
This is uncalled for.
August 9, 2016 at 1:25 PM
Trump should start a voters honesty pac and use the money to hire lawyers to go to court to block stop and if necessary charge those who are willing to commit voter fraud.

FOUND THIS ON MY TIMELINE:
Shared in comments by Lisa. YESTERDAY, HILLARY CLINTON MET BEHIND CLOSED DOORS WITH BRENDA SNIPES, SUPERVISER OF ELECTIONS IN BROWARD COUNTY FLORIDA. This is unheard of for a presidential candidate to meet with a Supervisor of Elections in a key county! Clinton’s meeting appears to be an attempt to rig the election. She has to win Broward County in order to win Florida. Brenda Snipe, Supervisor or Elections in Broward Country, also was responsible for “making a mistake” that left Amendment 2 Medical Marijuana Law off the ballot in Broward County. This goes beyond belief and the media is not touching it. And wouldn’t you know over 91,000 votes have been cast for the dems in Broward already in just 5 days ! That’s the biggest turnout in the state! Can you say crooked????

I can tell you for a fact. I have family members who moved from Florida 4 years ago and have registered to vote and have already voted in other States. All of them can go on line and request an absentee ballot. Broward County still shows them as Active voters! Brenda Snipe’s needs to be investigated for failure to do her job. I’ve requested an absentee ballot three times and have yet to receive one. Looks like I won’t be able to vote and I’m our of town and must absentee vote.
