TALLAHASSEE – Gov. Ron DeSantis and Florida Secretary of State Laurel Lee are considering extending the voter registration deadline after the state’s website errors and glitches on Monday, the last day to register before the general election.

“This morning I met with Governor DeSantis to brief him on the status of the online voter registration system and the challenges we encountered last night due to unprecedented volume and traffic to our website,” Lee said in a prepared statement.

Lee also said her department, which oversees elections, was working to make sure the errors were an honest mistake and not an attack on the system.
