Collier County election volunteers trained to prevent voter fraud


NAPLES, Fla, — Collier County election volunteers are being trained to watch for suspicious activity in order to protect voting integrity, according to local election officials.

An issue that has caught local attention is double-voting, meaning a part-time resident could vote in their home state and vote again in Florida.

A national tracking system called the Election Registration Information Center, or ‘ERIC,’ aims to solve this problem by tracking where people vote.

However, officials at the Secretary of State’s office said Florida can’t use this system because of confidentiality laws, so counties will be relying on volunteers and other voters to report any suspicious activity.
