Senators Joseph Abruzzo and Joe Negron both say changes are needed.
With Florida's elections chief heading to our area next week, local lawmakers are sounding off.
We heard from Palm Beach County Democratic Senator Joseph Abruzzo of Wellington and Republican Senator Joe Negron, who represents sections of the Treasure Coast and Palm Beach County.
The topic? There were several, all involving the November election, early voting ahead of it and what followed, including lost ballots, multiple recounts and long and winding voting lines.
As for the lines for early voting, Abruzzo blamed it partially on the GOP-led legislature. He told us "What happened with the Election Bill from last yr, shortning the amount of time of early voting, played in my strong opinion played a major role in this unfortunately".
We asked Negron for his thoughts on Abruzzo's comments and he said that was "ridiculous", going on "We never used to have early voting". When i registered to vote when i turned 18 you voted on election day or signed an affadavit under oath that you would be gone and they would give you an absentee ballot".
Negron is especially upset over what happened in St. Lucie County, telling us "The election in St. Lucie County was a complete and utter debacle from beginning to end".
