MIAMI (AP) - Florida's election procedures are again facing national scrutiny.
A new report by a Washington think tank finds that Floridians' access to the voting process varies widely from one county to another. The liberal-leaning Center for American Progress Action Fund ranked 40 counties based on several factors, including voter turnout, voter registration rates, voter purges and provisional and absentee ballots.
Officials from the group will discuss the report in a telephone press conference Monday.
The report bills Columbia County as the worst administrator of elections. That's partly because it had the lowest percentage of registered eligible voters and one of the highest rates of rejection for absentee ballots.
St. Johns County fared the best in the report. More than 80 percent of its voting-age population voted in last year's general election.
