“Our new election crimes office has sprung into action to hold individuals accountable for voter fraud,” he said. “Today’s actions send a clear signal to those who are thinking about ballot harvesting or fraudulently voting,” insisted DeSantis. “If you commit an elections crime, you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced the arrests of 20 people for voter fraud crimes following investigations by his newly formed election police force.
Each of the cases involves felons illegally casting votes, all of whom were convicted for either murder or sexual assault. Most were located in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.
DeSantis touted the arrests as a continuing effort by the state to ensure the integrity of elections. And he warned others who might be thinking about getting away with voter fraud.
