Why only in Orange County?

Doesn’t that place people in Santa Rosa County at a disadvantage?

I think it’s an ominous foreshadowing of what we’re going to see come Wednesday: Romney wins and the Dems cry “foul” from the rooftops. They will *not* go down without claiming Obama lost because of cheating, or some other mumbo-jumbo.

They’re already a bunch of sore losers and haven’t even lost yet!

Why in Orange County?

They are not over 100% of eligible voters’ ballots yet.

FOX has a little more info. Rick Scott denied requests/demands for more time and the “judge” put his nose in it - also other Dim lawsuits asking for more time to commit fraud in FL.

Politico has an article that Obama’s early voting lead is tenuous and may not be enough to counter Republican vote on election day.

“Judges” are a real pain in the ass. What was the reason for extending, “Too sunny?” “Too dark!” They’ve been early voting for a month. Geeesh! What a bunch of morons. Anybody who hasn’t voted at least once by now doesn’t need to vote anyway.

Because Orlando is full of dems, and they're behind on their ballot-stuffing.

I don't get this "early voting" at all.

If folks are unable to vote on election day, what is wrong with an absentee ballot?

Breaking News in Palm Beach County: Early voing shall continue today and tomorrow via absentee ballots. How are they gonna cheat with that, I wonder? They’ll find a way.

Those idiots stood in line 5 hours yesterday, and when asked why not wait until election day when there will be much smaller lines, the response was that they want their votes to count. Morons.

So where is Romney and the GOP lawyers. Rolling over again like the GOP always does. Make a case about voter disenfranchise to the rest of the state and get it to the FSC.

Listen people- The Democrats intend to take this thing by cheating. The level of that cheating is on a mind blowing scale. If the GOP intends to just sit back and roll with the punches then it will lose.

Some form of voter I’d. I’d settle for DMV issued IDs. I’m as worried about paperless ballots too. Only paper ballots should be allowed, counted with members from each party present. 13,000 polling places, would mean at least 26,000 people counting. This current system is a sham, especially in every Dem dominated city, filled with sel-righteous victims..

Fox is saying they had to close early voting for a while because they found a “suspicious” package.

Yeah, right.

The lines here were long but many of us stood in line and waited to vote. I stood in line for 2.5 hrs. to vote him out of office and I would have stood there all day if need be.

Is exit polling illegal? Has there been any polling of Democrats to find out what percentage of registered, voting Democrats have voted for Romney? With so much early voting taken place, it seems like someone would have this info.

According to the Orlando Sentinal, its only the one Winter Park location that got a bomb threat, and that no other locations in the county would be open. The better question to ask would be how many ballots were stuffed in thosr hours it was closed.

What about a system that used biometrics. Show drivers license, scan finger print and vote. Fingerprint scan would prevent duplicate voting

This country needs to have a national voter ID law to protect the validity of the process.

The only way to prevent voter fraud is retinal scanning.

Of course, we would then have a rash of people claiming they have cataracts.

Article doesn’t state if a Federal or State Judge, cuz if it is a Federal Judge, the Governor has the absolute RIGHT to THROW JUDGE IN JAIL for Usurping the rights of a free and independent State, not to mention States control Elections not the Feds. If it is a State Judge, call an emergency session TODAY and Remove HIM, then Prosecute him for the same as above.

If it were up to me there would be no early voting and absentee voting would require a valid reason. There would be a media exclusion zone of 200 yards and no tallies could be reported until the polls closed in Hawaii.

http://www.wftv.com/news/news/local/democratic-party-says-judges-has-ordered-four-more/nSxCD/

After a bomb scare at a Winter Park early voting location, the Democratic Party of Florida says a judge has ordered four more hours at that location.

The Florida Democratic Party filed lawsuits seeking to get four counties to offer more time for voting before Election Day.

The lawsuit filed in Orange County asked for additional time because an early voting site in that county was shut down for several hours while authorities investigated a suspicious package on Saturday.

The judge has ordered that the Winter Park early voting site be opened for four hours on Sunday afternoon. No time has yet been announced.

The party has a separate federal lawsuit seeking more early voting time in Palm Beach, Miami-Dade and Broward counties. Those counties were dealing with waits of up to six hours on Saturday, the last scheduled day of early voting.

Gov. Rick Scott refused requests this week from Democrats to extend early voting earlier in the week.

ORLANDO —
A judge has ordered Orange County to open up early voting for four more hours today at one site.

The Florida Democratic Party filed a lawsuit in Orange County, asking for additional time after two suspicious devices closed the Winter Park Library, located at 460 E. New England Ave., for several hours Saturday.

The Winter Park Library will be open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. today for provisional ballots only, according to Orange County Supervisor of Elections Bill Cowles. As a provisional ballot, the ballots will be sealed in envelopes and not inserted into voting machines.

They may also be reviewed by the Orange County Canvasssing Board after the resolution of any potential court challenges.

The Democratic Party is holding a press conference at 12:45 p.m.

Stay with News 13 and cfnews13.com for more on this developing story.

I’m in Florida and we have pretty strict ID laws. You have to show picture ID and voter ID card, then sign on the line below your name in the voter’s register.

The ballot this year, in Florida, is ridiculously long, that’s why we chose to vote by mail (you can track your ballot online and make sure it arrived.)

Our ballot was 4 full pages, and there were 11 amendments that are long and tedious to read through. It took us 20 minutes, at home, to fill ours out and I had already studied the amendments so I knew what they meant.

I can’t imagine what the wait at the polls are, if people are really trying to understand the ballot.

Still, if you’re in line at 7PM when the poll closes, you are allowed to vote, so I don’t see what the extension’s necessary.

.. what is wrong with an absentee ballot?

What the HELL is wrong with having the voting process that hundreds of thousands of Americans have died to protect being deemed important enough to MAKE THE TIME to respect and support the amazing privilege ? !

Of course documented exceptions should be made for the sick, infirm, etc .. but we're well on the way to turning one of the very foundation stones of the Republic into so much farcical sand.

Ok.

So it’s just for this ONE location, and because of a suspicious package scare that disrupted 4 hours of the normal hours of operation?

If this is all then the panic and freak out club can relax a little.
