Voters get final say on voting system in Sarasota by Mitch E. Perry

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.

The group that gathered the signatures to get the issue on this November’s ballot, The Sarasota Alliance for Fair Elections, says their work is hardly done. Now they will campaign to get the measure passed.
