Broward County Supervisor of Elections Joe Scott said in a letter to potential 2021 special election poll workers that they must show proof of vaccination. Patriots are challenging Joe Scott’s authority to unilaterally make such a decision
Here is the letter:
Broward Supervisor of Elections Joe Scott has told poll workers that they must be vaccinated for COVID-19 if they wish to work during the upcoming special primary and general elections to fill a congressional vacancy.
Scott said poll workers come can come into close contact with hundreds of voters, some of whom will be unmasked and unvaccinated. He said his directive, which he vetted with the office’s legal counsel, is designed to enhance public safety.
“Our poll workers have to engage in close quarters, personal contact with potentially hundreds of voters. So it’s not just for the safety of the public, but for the safety of the individuals who are poll workers as well. We want to keep everybody safe,” Scott said in a telephone interview. “Considering the circumstances and looking at the statistics as to how this Delta variant is spreading, it is important that we do everything we can to keep the public and to keep our employees safe.”
Scott informed the 1,079 poll workers needed for the Nov. 2 primary and Jan. 11 special election in a letter dated Aug. 3. He said his office has received fewer than 10 negative responses, with some people saying they didn’t think they needed the vaccine or believed there are safety issues.
This is should not be allowed to stand.
