PALM BEACH, Florida — Fourteen Palm Beach County voters appear to have cast ballots twice in the 2014 general election — once in Florida and once up North, Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher said Wednesday.
A Coral Springs database analyst brought the issue to Bucher’s attention, and he says he has uncovered dozens of other instances across Florida of people voting twice.
“We talk a lot about voter fraud,” said Andrew Ladanowski, a data analyst and information technology consultant at AddinSolutions. “Everyone accuses everyone of it, but no one has investigated cross-state voter fraud.”
Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes said Wednesday her office also is looking into information Ladanowski provided that up to 18 people voted twice there.
Election supervisors in Florida don’t have access to a national database to check other states’ voting records, making it difficult to detect people who vote twice, said Brian Corley, president of the Florida State Association of Supervisors of Elections and Supervisor of Elections in Pasco County.
