Sarasota County Re-vote Filing

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.
