Federal Court Rejects Rick Scott’s Florida Early Voting Changes!!
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A federal court says a Florida law that restricts the number of early-voting days could result in a dramatic reduction in voting by blacks.
The Republican-controlled Florida legislature last year cut the number of early-voting days to eight from 12.
But the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled late Thursday that because of the law’s potential impact on minority voters, it would not allow Florida to put the changes in place in five Florida counties covered by federal voting laws.
