In an attempt to purge all “non-citizens” from voter rolls, the Rick Scott administration has falsely told hundreds of eligible voters they’re ineligible. Think Progress obtained information from the Miami-Dade County Supervisor of Elections that shows:

– 1638 people in Miami-Dade County were flagged by the state as “non-citizens” and sent letters informing them that they were ineligible to vote.

– Of that group, 359 people have subsquently provided the county with proof of citizenship.

– Another 26 people were identified as U.S. citizens directly by the county.

– The bulk of the remaining 1200 people have simply not responded yet to a letter sent to them by the Supervisor of Elections.
