Last week I asked the U.S. Justice Department to investigate whether the new voter law passed earlier this year by the Florida Legislature, and signed by Gov. Rick Scott, resulted from a nationally coordinated effort to suppress voter turnout among millions of seniors, young people, and minorities in next year’s presidential election. As Progress Florida’s recent alert points out (see alert below), one consequence of this new law is the chilling effect on voter registration drives – even on teachers helping high school students register to vote. I’ll continue to do my part to overturn this affront to democracy. Meantime, I encourage you to get involved. Among other things, sign Progress Florida’s petition to the Florida Legislature demanding this law be repealed. If you’ve already signed, please share this email with your friends and family.
U.S. Senator, Florida
