Recent changes to Florida’s election laws have caused uproars in the courts and the voting lines. Members of Florida’s Senate Ethics and Elections Committee took a field trip on Tuesday to the Leon County’s Supervisor of Elections office to get a behind the scenes look at how the elections process works.

Election supervisors from several Florida counties are turning in their wish lists for how the state’s election law needs to change. The Senate Committee on Ethics and Elections heard  from the county officials Monday about what they think caused problems during the 2012 election.

The committee heard testimony from nine elections supervisors, including those from several of the biggest counties.
