Ever since the infamous "hanging chads" making George W. Bush president in 2000, elections in Florida have tended to be bitterly contentious  — as well as hotly contested.

That’s especially true at the moment as what can be charitably described as "voting irregularities" threaten to reverse the outcomes of races for the state’s next governor and U.S. senator.

Another upshot of the 2018 balloting in the Sunshine State is even more ominous.

A referendum passed that will allow an estimated 1.5 million convicted felons to vote in future elections. The practical effect of this measure will mean there’s unlikely to be another close election in Florida.

The vast majority of the serious criminals that will thus be re-enfranchised are expected reliably to vote for Democratic candidates. And without a shot at Florida’s electoral votes, there may never be another Republican president.
