    Orange County Early Voting Hours Extended Sunday Following Judge's Ruling

    A judge extended early voting hours in one Florida county on Sunday after the state Democratic Party sued in an effort to give people more time at the polls.

    Some voters had faced waits several hours long on Saturday, the last scheduled day of early voting. The judge ruled on a lawsuit filed late Saturday in Orange County after an early voting site was shut down for several hours. The Winter Park library was evacuated when a suspicious package – a cooler – was found outside. It was later detonated by a local bomb squad.

    Bill Cowles, the Orange County elections supervisor, said that voters who show up on Sunday will be asked to use a provisional ballot because the Republican Party of Florida had appealed the decision. The extra hours will be offered at only the Winter Park library.

    The state party also filed a federal lawsuit Sunday morning seeking more voting time in Palm Beach, Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

    Right. Because partisan hackery is more important than ensuring every willing American is afforded the opportunity to exercise their right to vote.

    1. No one has a right to vote.
    2. Who's being denied the opportunity to vote? Nobody.

    You partisan Hack.

    I'm a fan of early voting, giving people plenty of time to vote is a good thing. However I don't see early voting being an issue in Flordia, and it sounds like suing over it was a bit extreme on the dems part.

    They had something like 10 days to early vote, something like that. If you can't make it in all that time, they you're a loser and too stupid to vote for anyone.

    the gov cut early voting time in half from what it was. florida's two predecessor governor's felt it was a moral responsibility to make sure every citizen had the opportunity to vote. but the more people who vote, the more it benefits democrats. so gov teatard tried to make sure that voting would be so inconvenient a lot of people wouldn't bother.

    that's what the suit was about.

    and given that they won, the suit was a good idea.

    no doubt they'll appeal.
