LEON COUNTY, Fla. (WCTV) -- Officials with the Leon County Supervisor of Elections Office say they are reaching out to voters whose ballots were not counted due to signature discrepancies.
Officials issued the following news release on Thursday:
The Leon County Supervisor of Elections office is proactively contacting voters whose ballot was not counted due to a signature mismatch but was received by our office by 7:00 p.m. on November 6th.
Because time is of the essence, our office is doing this to prepare for a possible order from the Florida Secretary of State that these voters have additional time to cure the signature mismatch.
Based upon our understanding of the Order Granting Preliminary Injunction by Chief Judge Mark Walker, our office has what we believe to be 38 ballots that fall within the parameters of the judge’s order.
Our office will release more detailed information as it becomes available.
The action comes in the wake of U.S. District Judge Mark Walker's order that voters be given until 5 p.m. Saturday to show a valid identification and fix their ballots if they haven't been counted due to mismatched signatures.
