Brenda Snipes 2018 Midterm Elections Alledged Incompetence
Brenda Snipes accidentally mixed more than a dozen rejected ballots with nearly 200 valid ones, a circumstance that has led to Republican alleging that she is incompetent.
The mistake — for which no one had a solution Friday night, 9th November 2018 — was discovered after Snipes agreed to present 205 provisional ballots to the Broward County canvassing board for inspection. She had initially intended to handle the ballots administratively but agreed to present them to the canvassing board after Republican attorneys objected.
Broward must present its unofficial vote total from the midterm elections to the state by noon Saturday, 10th October 2018. Recounts are expected in races for U.S. Senate, governor, and commissioner of agriculture. Snipes has become a target for Republican politicians alleging corruption and incompetence after her office was still counting thousands of early and absentee ballots in the days following Tuesday’s 6th November 2018 election.
