Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) has ordered the state to purge all â€œnon-citizensâ€ from the voting rolls prior to Novemberâ€™sÂ election. But that list compiled by the Scott administration is so riddled with errors that, in Miami-Dade County alone, hundreds of U.S. citizens are being told they are ineligible to vote, Think Progress has learned exclusively.
According to data from the Miami-Dade County Supervisor of Elections obtained by Think Progress:
-Â 1638 people in Miami-Dade County were flagged by the state as â€œnon-citizensâ€Â and sent letters informing them that they were ineligible to vote.
- Of that group,Â 359 people have subsequently provided the county with proof of citizenship.
- AnotherÂ 26 people were identified as U.S. citizens directly by the county.
