Florida Dems to proceed with mail-in vote – USATODAY.com
WASHINGTON ā€” The Florida Democratic Party plans to move forward with a June 3 vote-by-mail primary to restore the state’s role in the presidential race, a top state Democrat said Wednesday.

State Sen. Steven Geller said a formal announcement would come Thursday or Friday.

Unless national party leaders “are willing to write off the state of Florida in the general election, we have to do something that seats our delegates,” he said.

National party officials stripped Florida and Michigan of their delegates to this summer’s national convention in Denver to punish the states for moving their primaries before Feb. 5. Florida lost 211 delegates, Michigan, 156.
