On behalf of a coalition of civil rights organizations and civic groups that assist with new voter registration, the Brennan Center for Justice sent a letter to Florida’s Secretary of State, requesting that Florida hold off on the premature implementation of the state’s newly-passed election law changes. The new law, H.B. 1355, contains a number of measures tightening voting and voter registration opportunities, including shortening Florida’s early voting period, making it harder for Floridians who have recently moved to vote normally, and instituting onerous new regulations on voter registration.
