Governor DeSantis, Florida's Secretary of State Laurel M. Lee and the Florida Department of State have made elections integrity a top priority.
“Florida’s election in 2020 was accurate, transparent, and conducted in compliance with Florida law. Florida conducted both pre and post elections audits, and we are confident in the security and integrity of our 2020 election results," said Florida Secretary of State, Laurel M. Lee.
"Before each election, every county performs a Logic and Accuracy Test to ensure that ballots are printed correctly and that the voting system is counting votes correctly. This testing is publicly noticed and open to the public. See section 101.5612, Florida Statutes.
Further, after every election, each county must perform a post-election certification voting system audit unless there has been a manual recount conducted in that election. See section 101.591, Florida Statutes; Rule 1S-5.026, Florida Administrative Code. This testing is publicly noticed and open to the public. The post-election audit confirmed that Florida’s 2020 election was secure and accurate.
Governor DeSantis and I have made elections integrity a defining priority and a cornerstone of this administration.
At the Florida Department of State, we are committed to building voter confidence in our elections process by providing accurate information to the public.”
We work hard to meet the highest standards for security and integrity, and we've done that in a variety of ways, whether that's through pre- and post-election audits, continual assessment and strengthening of our elections cybersecurity, and developing partnerships to ensure the integrity of the election.
Florida was a model for successful election administration in the 2020 election cycle, and we continue to seek ways to improve our processes.
