In a last-ditch effort to ‘fortify’ the upcoming elections as the polls show Democrats losing virtually every key race in the Senate and losing their majority in the House, Biden’s Department of Justice announced that they would be sending election monitors to 24 states across the country.

The election monitors will mostly be sent to swing counties that will likely determine the outcome of the upcoming elections.

Florida’s Secretary of State decided to ban Biden’s election monitors from all polling station’s in Florida, saying that the Department of Justice has not detailed a ‘need’ for monitors in the three counties where they want to enter polling stations.

Instead, the Florida Department of State will send its own monitors to polling stations to ensure that there is “no interference with the voting process”

Florida officials warned the US Justice Department that federal election monitors are not allowed inside polling places under state law, pushing back against federal plans for monitors in the state.

In a letter to DOJ dated Monday, Florida state elections officials argued that federal officials are not included on the list of people allowed inside polling places, and even if they did qualify, it “would be counterproductive and could potentially undermine confidence in the election.”

The Justice Department announced plans to send elections monitors to 24 states, including three counties in Florida – Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach. The practice of sending federal election monitors to local jurisdictions dates back decades.

But the department did “not detail the need for federal monitors in these counties,” Florida Department of State General Counsel Brad McVay wrote to DOJ in the letter.
