Debunking the bunk: Separating fact from fiction in 2016 election



Is it true they only count mail ballots if it's a close election? (No, they are counted first).

Can dead people vote in Florida? (Only if they are alive and vote before election day).

If I lose my mail ballot, can I get another one? (Yes, you can get up to three -- but only one counts).

These and dozens of other questions are popping up with regularity at county elections offices around Florida, and one supervisor has a regular feature on his Facebook account called "Debunk the bunk." The full story is here.
