The Florida Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a lawsuit demanding that all provisional ballots be counted regardless of the location cast.

Provisional ballots were created in the 2001 election reform law as a way to guarantee that voters whose names don’t show up on the voting rolls, perhaps through error, could still vote on Election Day. If a check shows the voter is eligible to vote, the ballot is counted. The state legislature provided that provisional ballots must be discarded if the voter did not cast the vote in he correct precinct. A coalition of unions, including the AFL-CIO, want the court to order election supervisors to count so-called provisional ballots regardless of where the voter turns them in. close
