On the final day of the race to register voters in 16 states and the District of Columbia, Florida is reviewing a crop of complaints involving alleged voter registration irregularities, across the political spectrum.
Formal complaints have been filed against both the Florida Republican and Democratic Parties and two nonpartisan outside organizations working to register voters in the state. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has launched investigations.
Voters in Florida and the other 15 states and D.C. who want to cast their ballots on Election Day Nov. 6 must register by end of day Tuesday. While Florida in particular has a sizable Latino population, nationally, nearly 12 million Latino adults are eligible but not registered to vote. And now, the nation's largest Latino civil rights organization -- one of the outside groups that has been working steadily to get out the vote by the registration deadline -- is questioning the substance and true purpose of the complaints filed against the group in Florida.
