Suspect voter registrations in Broward? Elections chief won't say

The Miami Herald/Tampa Bay Times reported that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement recently launched a review of a Republican Party of Florida vendor that turned in more than 100 suspicious voter registration forms in Palm Beach County. Ten other counties in Florida  -- including Miami-Dade -- have reported similar issues with Strategic Allied Consulting. And FDLE is investigating National Council of La Raza for turning in three questionable forms in Miami-Dade.

So are there any similar problems with vendors submitting voter registration forms in Broward? I started asking questions of the office of Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes on Monday about whether Strategic Allied Consulting had submitted any registrations in Broward and more questions on Tuesday and so far, no clear answer.

"Your query is going through the public records request process and will be responded to when the other two media inquiries on that subject are," Broward spokeswoman Mary Cooney wrote in an email to the Miami Herald Wednesday morning. "I can tell you Broward did not receive the quantity of suspect forms as Palm Beach county reported."

Spokespersons for FDLE and the Broward State Attorney's Office told the Miami Herald Tuesday that they had not been contacted about any similar voter registration problems with vendors in Broward County. 

When we get a more complete answer from Snipes' office we will provide an update.
