Broward Supervisor of Elections Office (SOE) workers were oblivious as a Broward Democrat Party Official sat nearby handing out the official party palm card to voters at the Northwest Regional Library in Coral Springs. Florida law states all electioneering must be at least 150 feet from the entrance of a polling place. When setting up a polling place, one of the first things Broward SOE workers do is mark the 150 feet boundary.
On Sunday, REDBROWARD spotted Democratic National Committee Black Caucus Southern Regional Director Grace Carrington well within 150 feet of the library entrance. We watched as Carrington asked numerous voters if they wanted the offical Democratic Part card. Carrington sat in the shade while other candidates and volunteers melted in the 100 degree heat by the boundary set by SOE.
Carrington and two SOE workers convinced the supervisor on scene that Carrington was behind the line. Later, a disgruntled worker confirmed Carrington was violating the boundary. She moved further from entrance. Of course, Broward SOE workers were upset with REDBROWARD for pushing compliance with the law.
