Secretary of State Ken Detzner issued a directive to election supervisors last week stating that they “should not solicit return of absentee ballots at any place other than a supervisor’s office.” We tried to find out if Broward's use of a "mobile office" -- a van that travels to announced spots and collects absentee ballots among other tasks -- complies with that directive.
"We don’t have enough details on their activity to comment at this time," Detzner's spokeswoman Brittany Lesser told the Tampa Bay Times' Steve Bousquet.
If Detzner needs more details, he can read about Broward's mobile office in our post yesterday. Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes told us that she hasn't heard from Detzner's office about her mobile van.
Any lawyers out there want to comment on whether a van constitutes an office? Let me know @amysherman1
