Florida Capital Star: Are election volunteers “helping” themselves to others’ votes?

Sometimes vote fraud happens from a distance (absentee or mailed ballots) and sometimes it’s up-close and personal. In Florida’s Miami-Dade County, the State Attorney is looking into reports of a large up-tick in volunteers from campaigns and city government “helping” the elderly or disabled to vote. In other parts of Florida, only 1 percent of voters need assistance, but in Miami-Dade that number is above 10 percent. Two-thirds of the helpers were city or campaign workers – were they assisting with votes or manipulating them?
