Voter fraud suspect moved to Alachua County Jail just days before prison release date

Staff report

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Clifton Edward Anderson, 58, has been moved to the Alachua County Jail to face voter fraud charges just days prior to his June 18 release date from prison.

Anderson, a registered sex offender, was charged in February with fraudulently registering to vote and fraudulently voting in the 2020 General Election, both felonies. The charging document alleges that Anderson registered to vote in Alachua County on September 11, 2020, although he was ineligible to vote because he was a registered sex offender. Anderson allegedly voted on November 3, 2020, although he was ineligible to vote.

Anderson has just finished serving an 18-month state prison sentence for failing to register a vehicle that he owned when he registered a new address with Alachua County in March 2021.

Anderson is one of nine registered sexual offenders who were referred to Kramer’s office by Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Kim Barton in August 2022 and was the first to be charged. Derrick Robinson has since been sentenced to three years in state prison on charges of fraudulently registering to vote and fraudulently voting.

Judge Walter Green set bail at $30,000 on the charges.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. 

  • One of the handful of people of color that were caught voting 🗳 in Florida after the people of Florida voted to have Felons voting rights restored (nonviolent)and Republicans here took the teeth out the bill by finding bs rules that prevented them from eventually voting going against the will of the people to hang on 2 power.. so Ron DeDumbass paraded these people in front of cameras arresting them like he did with the woman who wouldn’t fudge the covid numbers 🤔 for him.. meanwhile 4 white people did it in Ocala and was never charged 😒.. look it up.. which I know you won’t 😏

  • Eighteen months for failing to register a vehicle to a new address?

    Many peeps don’t get that much time with 5 felonies.

    • It’s a violation of his sex offender terms & conditions, which he is well aware of. It’s also far from his first time violating. Between that and his extensive history- that’s why he got 5 years.

  • Another Kim Barton victim. She seriously needs to face charges for taking advantage of all those inmates.

  • Judge Green can sure step up with a $30K bond for this Kim Barton encouraged voting, but ignores violence and gun law violations with $22K bond. BAD Judge Green, BAD on you.
