Voter Suppression in Palm Beach County

Definition - Voter Suppression is defined as any intentional or unintentional conduct of an Elections Supervisor that denies, limits, reduces or restricts a voter’s access to voting and/or not recording or counting ballots that have been timely cast.

=12 hours of Voting=12 hours of Voting= 8 hours of Voting

Effect of Voter Suppression – While Voters in Port Charlotte and Port St. Joe had 12 hours each day of Voting for a time period of 2 whole weeks, Voters in Palm Beach County had only 8 hours each day of Voting for only 1 week and 2 days. If you worked your day job from 9:00 to 6:00pm, you had NO access to Early Voting. When the SOE in Palm Beach County reduced/limited Early Voting to the hours of 10:00am to 6:00pm, thousands of eligible voters were essentially DENIED free and fair access to the polls and access to Vote. The SOE argues that this was the same schedule that was used in 2018. Such an argument is hollow. 2020 was the time to correct a past wrongdoing.
