Both Sarasota Elections Supervisor Kathy Dent and Manatee Supervisor Bob Sweat agree that noncitizens should be taken off their voter rolls, but claim they have found errors in the lists of ineligible voters sent to them by the state. Both have stopped efforts to purge potentially ineligible voters in light of the problem.
Dent said that 2 of the 14 voters the state identified as potentially ineligible to vote are in fact eligible citizens. Sweat said that 1 of the 11 voters on his list turned out to be eligible as well.
Dent and Sweat, both Republicans, are critical of the flaws in the lists provided to them, but are also critical of the federal government for not sharing immigration data with the state to improve them.
