Settlement of Early Voting Lawsuit in 3 FL Counties

Apparently the three stipulations are about the same:

a. On Monday, November 5, 2012, there shall be in-person absentee ballot

voting until 5:00 pm. Anyone in line at 5:00 pm will be provided a ballot so long as that

ballot can be printed and delivered before 7:00 pm.


b. On Tuesday, November 6, 2012, there shall be in-person absentee ballot

voting from 7:00 am until 7:00 pm. At such time at the end of the day as it appears that

there are more people in line than can obtain a ballot and vote before 7:00 pm, or drive to

their precinct to vote, as required by Florida law, the Supervisor shall advise those who

cannot be so accommodated that they must go to their precinct to vote.


2. The Supervisor of Elections shall forthwith advise the media about the new

hours for absentee voting.


3. The County is acting consistent with the requirements of Florida Statutes Sec.



4. The County’s practices are consistent with the best interests of the voters of

Palm Beach County to allow expanded voting opportunities.


5. The Court shall reserve jurisdiction to ensure compliance.
