Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark announced she has halted processing the list of potential noncitizen voters distributed to Supervisors of Elections by the Division of Elections.

“The accuracy of the voter registration database is of the utmost importance,” Clark said, “and we will continue our efforts to ensure the information is current. However, we will not use unreliable data.”

Clark and other Supervisors questioned not only the accuracy of the information, but also the timing after learning that the state had the list of voters more than a year prior to distributing it.
