Do we have election materials in Spanish to facilitate cheating?


A person must be a U.S. citizen to vote in U.S. elections.

An immigrant must know English to obtain U.S. citizenship.

So if all the eligible voters know English, why do we need the ballot and other election materials in both English and Spanish?

Are people cheating by bringing illegal immigrants to the polls to vote? It is hard to find another explanation for Spanish ballots.

We need to eliminate the Spanish ballots to reduce the cheating and save money.

The County has voted to increase the property tax rate because of a declining tax base and is looking for ways to save money.

How much do they spend on Spanish ballots?

They can reduce spending by eliminating all the Spanish voting materials. And while they are at it they can save more money by firing the people responsible for the un-American cheating-enabling Spanish ballots and firing all the people paid to prepare those materials.

Do you prefer having Spanish ballots or paying lower taxes?

    I sent this blog to the Governor and received the following reply from Mark.Ard@DOS.MyFlorida.com
    “Thank you for your questions/comments to the Division of Elections.

    Section 203 of the Federal Voting Rights Act requires certain
    jurisdictions to provide all election materials in languages other than
    English. The determination of whether a jurisdiction falls in the
    bilingual provisions of the Voting Rights Act is determined using the
    last Census numbers and a formula relating to the number of voting age
    citizens who are members of a single language minority group who do not
    speak or understand English adequately enough to participate in the
    electoral process. The Department of Justice enforces these provisions.
    The following counties in Florida are required to print election
    materials in both English and Spanish: Broward, Hardee, Hendry,
    Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Orange, Osceola, and Palm Beach.

    Any change to the provisions of the Voting Rights Act must be considered
    by Congress.

    That said, Section 97.041, Florida Statutes, provides qualifications to
    register or vote. One of those provisions is that a person must be a
    citizen of the United States.”
