Lack of money delays mailings of 80,000 Broward voter cards

This explains why I still haven’t received my voter registration card for my change of address, which I requested in August:

Elections Supervisor Miriam Oliphant’s office is so far behind in its work that new registration cards have not been mailed since mid-July, leaving about 80,000 Broward County residents without their voter identification.

“We have a backlog,” conceded Bruce Eldridge, the elections office’s director of computer systems.

Eldridge said the office ran out of money for the printing of registration cards and postage in mid-July.

The office has fielded hundreds of angry phone calls from voters waiting months for their cards, according to a state report released last week that was highly critical of Oliphant.
