News | Latest News

Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) ordered a review of the voting process in his state Saturday after voters in some counties spent up to seven hours in line on Election Day to vote, CNN reports.

"We are glad that so many voters made their voices heard in this election, but as we go forward we must see improvements in our election process," Scott said in a statement. "I have asked Secretary of State Ken Detzner to review this general election and report on ways we can improve the process after all the races are certified.”

The review will focus particularly on areas where the lines were long.

"As part of this evaluation, Secretary Detzner will meet with county election supervisors, who are elected or appointed to their position - especially those who ran elections in counties where voters experienced long lines of four hours or more," Scott said in the statement. "We need to make improvements for Florida voters and it is important to look at processes on the state and the county level. We will carefully review suggestions for bettering the voting process in our state."
