Former Oakland Park Commissioner Anne Sallee noticed something troubling about her vote-by-mail ballot. It is missing Constitutional Amendment 2, the medical marijuana question.Give it up establishment.
Sallee, now Broward chapter director of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association, knows her way around government. Yet she said she spent a week unsuccessfully trying to get someone at the Broward elections office to pay attention to her complaint.
"They said, 'Oh, no, you're mistaken. It's there,' " she recounted.
The ballot, a scanned image of which Sallee sent to the Sun Sentinel, goes from Amendment 1 to Amendment 3.
Broward Elections Supervisor Dr. Brenda Snipes said Wednesday that she hasn't seen Sallee's ballot yet and can't confirm there's something wrong with it. But she and her technical staff spent much of the day investigating, and found no evidence of faulty ballots being sent to voters.
"We have a check-and-balance system. We can go back and see what we did send to the printer," she said. "When you're dealing with this much paper and this many people, we may have made a mistake. But I haven't heard a lot of people saying, 'I don't have it, either.' We've already sent [Sallee] another ballot."
Snipes said her office plans to retrieve it "we can start to examine what may have caused the problem."
Snipes was cleared Wednesday in another election snafu, the early posting of primary election results. Her office also was criticized for sending out inaccurate voter ID cards, and for printing ballots for November that include the word "no" in the "yes" line on the county's transportation sales surtax question.
