Gov. Rick Scott on Monday defended the state’s effort to remove potentially ineligible voters from the rolls, reports the News Service of Florida. “When you go out to vote you want to make sure that the other individuals that are voting have a right to vote. That’s what I care about,” Scott said during a stop for a business roundtable Monday morning in Quincy. “If you’re a candidate, you want to make sure that the people who vote in your election are the people that have a right to vote. So my focus is in making sure that our state has fair elections, people that have a right to vote, vote, because I don’t want to disenfranchise anybody in their voting rights.” Scott said the timing – just months before the election – was due to the state trying to get information from the federal Homeland Security agency that would make the list of potentially ineligible voters more complete. So far, the state has been unable to get access to that database. “There’s no perfect time to do any of these things,” Scott said.
