Our Democracy, Our Priority: A Message From the Florida Supervisors of Elections--Wesley Wilcox - Tuesday, November 2, 2021

Our Democracy, Our Priority

The Great American Experiment, our cherished democracy, is under threat. Our nation is only as strong as the faith our citizens have that their voice, their vote, has a say in our government. In this hour, public trust in our elections is being systematically undermined, to the detriment of all Americans.

As election professionals, we have sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Our Constitution is built upon the idea that “we the people” choose our government. We put that idea into practice through elections. It is the foundation and core unifying principle of our democracy.

As the official trusted sources of election information and experts in our fields, we continuously strive to debunk false claims, and ensure voters have access to accurate election information. We are dedicated to the cause of election integrity, ensuring that every eligible voter’s ballot is counted accurately and that no fraud takes place. But false claims of fraud do not strengthen our elections. Instead, they degrade confidence in the institutions, and discourage citizen participation in our democracy.

During and after the 2020 Presidential Election, the integrity of our democracy has been challenged by misinformation, disinformation, and malinformation that sows discord and undermines trust in America’s electoral process. Many of us have been threatened by our fellow citizens who have been led astray by these deceptions.

Instead of standing idly by, we ask all candidates and elected officials to tone down the rhetoric and stand up for our democracy. We ask that you work with us to understand the safeguards implemented to ensure elections are conducted fairly, securely, and accurately.

In the Gettysburg Address, President Lincoln proclaimed that the American people must dedicate themselves to ensuring that “Government of the people, by the people, for the people must not perish from the Earth.” It is through elections that government by the people is accomplished. To this end, we call on officials at all levels of government to commit themselves to the goal of fighting falsehoods and strengthening voter trust. We can rise to this challenge. Our democracy depends on it.

Lake County Supervisor of Elections Announces an Additional Precinct/Polling Place Change for Tomorrow’s (3/17/20) Presidential Preference Primary

Tavares, FL - Alan Hays, Lake County Supervisor of Elections, announces an additional Precinct/Polling Place Change for tomorrow’s (3/17/20) Presidential Preference Primary.
Precinct 63, whose polling place, was previously located at the Mid Florida Lakes Clubhouse, has been moved to Grand Island Baptist Church, whose address is 13229 CR-44, Grand Island, FL. Signage will be posted at the old polling site, directing voters to the new location.
“I want to assure all voters that each precinct/polling location is well equipped with disinfectant wipes and sprays, and we will be wiping down all of our equipment to follow the CDC guidelines. Voters who choose to bring their own pen to mark their ballot are advised to use a black ink ballpoint pen,” Hays stated.
Some precinct polling place changes were noticed earlier, and a listing can be found on the home page of our website, www.lakevotes.com.
At some polling locations we may limit the number of voters allowed in the room at one time as we accommodate the most recent CDC guidelines with social distancing. “Rest assured we will be able to accommodate all voters, and we take voter safety very seriously,” Hays stated. Please visit our website www.LakeVotes.com and watch our social media posts for additional updates as they become available.
