Voting may be easy these days - you can do it in person, through the mail, on Election Day or a handful of days before it. You just can’t register to vote online.
A bill on Governor Rick Scott's desk would make Florida one of a couple dozen states to offer online voter registration but only if he doesn't veto it.
“My main concern is security and to make sure that we have participating with us the tax collectors, because they're involved, the Supervisors of Elections, Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, 'cause we'd be using their database, and the Department of State,” said Secretary of State, Ken Detzner.
But of all those online voter registration states, none have found any fraud.
And what's more, a new report finds the average cost of implementing those online systems is a quarter-million dollars, not even close to the $1.8 million earmarked here in Florida.
Far from costing taxpayer dollars, online registration could actually save them, and as for fraud, well, there's none to speak of.
That's why the governor's critics say his skepticism could be less about registering to vote and more about the process of actually voting.
Leon County Supervisor of Elections Ion Sancho says his team is constantly correcting errors on paper registration forms, the same kind of errors that would be caught and fixed instantly with online registration.
He complains he's been getting radio silence from Detzner and the governor who just happens to be mulling a bid for U.S. Senate in 2018.
“If the governor vetoes it, I think that's really going to be the equivalent of spitting in the faces of Florida's citizens. On what basis are we not going to join the 21st century? Because of some partisan reason, because somebody wants to gain some personal advantage? I hope that we can go beyond personal advantage to realize there's a public good here,” Ion Sancho/Leon County Supervisor of Elections.
