Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Wednesday he would introduce a new package of election integrity legislation that included the establishment of an “Office of Election Crimes and Security.”

The office would be tasked with investigating election crimes and fraud, DeSantis said .

“I am excited that with this legislation, our state will be able to enforce election violations, combat voter fraud, and make sure violators are held accountable,” he said. “If potential violators know they will be held accountable, they will be much less likely to engage in improper conduct in the first place.”

The DeSantis legislation would also ban “insecure haphazard drop box locations” anywhere in the state and would make ballot harvesting, which is prohibited, a third-degree felony.

The legislation would also require county election supervisors to adhere to a timeline to purge voter rolls of ineligible voters.
