Voters get final say on voting system in Sarasota by Mitch E. Perry09/14/06
As we reported last night on the Evening News, Sarasota County voters will get a chance to pick which kind of voting system should be used for the next presidential election.
A judge ruled Wednesday that a proposed ballot initiative demanding a countywide paper-ballot voting system is not unconstitutional as the county's attorneys had argued.
WMNF was unable to reach Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections Kathy Dent for commentâ€¦But we did speak to her today to get her reaction (roll tape#1 o.q.â€?new voting systemâ€?)
The group that gathered the signatures to get the issue on this Novemberâ€™s ballot, The Sarasota Alliance for Fair Elections, says their work is hardly done. Now they will campaign to get the measure passed.
