As early voting continues through Election Day in Florida, questions persist as to whether the state will be ready for a recount of the electorate. While online voter registration has become an increasingly popular and commonplace feature, some counties have had difficulty with voter verification.

In Broward County, a judge in July set aside the sample ballots created and printed for voting on early ballots because elections officials failed to provide enough identification cards to voters, preventing anyone from completing the ballot.

A Superior Court judge said the issue should be reviewed before election day on Nov. 6, prompting the supervisor of elections, Brenda Snipes, to release the samples. Still, Palm Beach County has faced a similar issue and, along with another county, Broward, Palm Beach and Palm Beach counties, did not produce their sample ballots before early voting began last week.

By Thursday, voters in four counties in northeast Florida had voted electronically without the benefit of provisional ballots because voting equipment in Marion and Marion County was not functioning properly.

The Department of State, which is responsible for elections in Florida, said the statewide polling system has not been impacted by the maintenance problems.
