Amendment 2, which would legalize medical cannabis, is one of several ballot initiatives being voted on this election in Florida. Although the election isn’t until November 8th, early voting is already underway, and at least one voter – former Oakland Park Commissioner Anne Sallee – has come forward with images of her ballot that show Amendment 2 completely missing.

Sallee, now Broward chapter director of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association, told the Sun Sentinel she spent a week unsuccessfully trying to get someone at the Broward elections office to pay attention to her complaint, only to be told that she’s “mistaken”. To prove her claim, Sallee sent a scanned image of her ballot, which clearly shows the ballot go from Amendment 1, straight to Amendment 3.

Broward Elections Supervisor Dr. Brenda Snipes said yesterday that her technical staff has investigated, and found no evidence of faulty ballots being sent to voters.
