FLORIDA GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATE FILES EMERGENCY REQUEST FOR EXTENDED VOTING HOURS
ABC's MARYALICE PARKS: Florida Democratic Challenger Charlie Crist has filed a motion with the Circuit Court for the 17th Judicial Circuit asking for extended voting hours in Broward County. The county, which includes Fort Lauderdale, is understood to be a Democrat stronghold. It is represented by Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
The request cites mechanical errors at several polling stations. Crist’s campaign manager tweeted around 6:30PM: “The campaign is filing an emergency motion to extend voting hours in Broward County from 7pm to 9pm. See the motion: http://chrl.ie/Motion”
