Sen. Eleanor Sobel creates task force to look at voting problems in Broward County

State. Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood, is forming a Broward County Election Task Force to look at problems that occurred during the November election.

"I am forming this task force not to point fingers at anyone, but to find solutions, real solutions that Broward and Florida desperately need," said Sobel in a press release. "We can no longer sit back and continue to be not only the butt of jokes around the country and the world, but a blemish on Democracy as well."

The task force will meet at 5 p.m. Dec. 10 at the Broward County Commission chambers, 115 S. Andrews Ave., Fort Lauderdale.

Anyone interested in serving on the task force or who would like to give public testimony can send an email to or call 954-924-3693.
