Election leaders brainstorm in Tallahassee
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Florida's elections officials are trying to prevent future national embarrassments.
It took the Sunshine State almost four days to deliver the same results every other state had on election night.
Duval County's Supervisor of Elections joined other state officials in Tallahassee Wednesday to figure out how to fix the election day dilemmas.
Holland says the trip was productive. "Our Secretary of State was very proactive. He wanted to hear from the Supervisor of Elections because we're the ones who run elections and see what recommendations we would have."
Here are some of the recommendations from the meeting:
Address long lines by changing the state statute to add community centers as polling locations increasing the number of places people can vote
Switch from paper registers to electronic poll books
Separate ballots with different languages instead of having all on one ballot decreasing the number of pages to be put through a machine
Holland says new election technology for Duval County could cost taxpayers $2 million or more.
