We've now heard from several people that Florida's online voter registration site is NOT letting people register to vote. FL registration deadline is TOMORROW to vote in the Midterms. @mrmidi recorded the error here. This is voter suppression. The state must EXTEND the deadline. pic.twitter.com/IHKeml0QPh— Samuel Sinyangwe (@samswey) October 9, 2018
Despite the apparent glitches, Detzner's spokeswoman Sarah Revell, told Orlando Weekly that the site is actually fine.
This is true. Wasn’t able to register 18yr old son via website last night or today. We finally just printed the registration form and made copies of his ID to take to Supervisor of Elections before they close today. Ridiculous! Not everyone can do this! Makes you wonder.. 😡— Sarah Zhou (@SarahKZhou) October 9, 2018
