Florida to resend 'missing' ballots

Text size Aa Aa

Election officials in the US state of Florida say they are going to resend absentee ballots to thousands of voters after complaints that they have gone missing in the post. Around 60,000 people have reported their voting papers have not been delivered. The US postal service says it is highly unlikely they just disappeared.

Local election supervisor Gisela Salas told reporters: “The Florida department of law enforcement has launched an investigation into this matter.” With early voting already underway the incident has stoked fears that the chaos of the 2000 US presidential vote could be repeated next week, and that many Floridians could miss out on the election.
