TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -

State law enforcement officials are reviewing allegations of voter registration fraud against the Florida Democratic Party.

The Florida Department of State on Friday confirmed that it has forwarded complaints about voter registration fraud that have been filed against the Democrats, as well as two other groups -- the Florida New Majority Education Fund and La Raza/Democracia USA. Neither agency would comment on the extent of the allegations or how many voter registration forms it involves.


A party spokeswoman said that the Democrats were unaware of any complaints that they had registered someone who was ineligible. But Brannon Jordan said that party volunteers go through extensive training.


The Florida Department of Law Enforcement earlier this week launched an investigation into alleged fraud involving a company hired by the state's Republican Party.
