The extended counting and long lines in Florida's troubled election last November should be easy to fix, according to the state's supervisors of elections.

Today election supervisors from all over Florida raised their right hands and promised to tell the truth in a Senate hearing on the presidential election.

They experienced similar problems and offered similar recommendations to fix the problems that made Florida the target of jokes.

Supervisors pointed to the lengthy ballot as one big factor contributing to lines that made some voters wait more than six hours. The ballot contained 11 constitutional amendments from the Legislature.

Supervisors suggested limiting amendments from lawmakers to 75 words -- the same restriction for citizen initiatives.

They recommended expanding the number of early voting days up to 14. Current state law limits early voting to eight days.

Plus, supervisors want to eliminate restrictions in state law on early voting locations.
