Need more evidence of the shocking voter fraud out of Broward County in Florida? An explosive report detailing over 1,100 registered voters who have unlawfully listed a UPS box as their official address in 2013 has now resurfaced.
It’s further proof that election schenanigans have been happening in this heavily-Democratic county for years — and officials have refused to investigate.

A Media Trackers investigation uncovered 1,128 voters who listed a UPS box as where they live, despite Florida Statute 97.053 that explicitly states voting applicants must give their “legal residence address.”
A spokesperson for the Broward County elections office at the time claimed that if their system discovers an applicant with a non-residential address listed, they do address the problem — so how did over 1,000 people pass through the system years ago?
According to the official Florida Voter Registration form, the applicant is specifically asked for “Legal Residence – no P.O. Box.”
Citizens are told on the Broward Supervisor Elections website to indicate their “Full Name, Date of Birth, Address of Legal Residence (address where you live), Florida Drivers License number or Florida ID card, or the last four digits of Social Security number and signature.”
However clear the instructions may be, over 1,000 applicants still managed to illegally register to vote with a UPS store as their home address.
According to Media Tracker, “An aide to Broward County Commissioner Chip LaMarca appears to be one of the worst offenders.”
The aide, Ryan M. Reiter, registered himself to vote at 4613 North University Drive, Apt. 481 in Coral Springs, Florida.
Of course, there are no apartments at this listed address. 4613 North University Drive is the address of UPS Store #3748. And Reiter wasn’t the only registered voter who unlawfully listed his address as their home.
A whopping 46 other people registered to vote at this address — and more than half of them voted in the November 2012 election!
Not one, but several other UPS Stores were also the listed addresses of several other registered voters.
Also in Coral Springs, UPS Store #3996 was listed as having 20 active voters. Another Coral Springs UPS Store had 40 active voters who listed the store location as their home.
And that’s just the beginning.
Media Trackers reports that, “Voter records show the problem exists at UPS Stores throughout Broward County.”
Sixty-three active voters registered at a UPS Store in Hollywood, while 68 other active voters registered at a UPS Store in Fort Lauderdale. A UPS Store in Hallandale Beach had a stunning 115 registered voters.
A spokesperson at the time stated that, “When election officials discover a registered voter listing a non-residential address, they send the voter a letter asking him or her to resolve the matter.”
Nevertheless, over 1,000 registered voters were able to slip through the cracks.
And the problem seems to still persist to this day.
