“DeSantis signs election overhaul; civil rights groups prepare lawsuit”
Richard – Last week, Florida’s Republican Governor, Ron DeSantis signed a measure that massively restricts the voting rights of former felons in the state. We can’t let this clear attack on voting rights go unchecked.
The GOP-controlled state legislature tried to sell this measure as necessary to enact the voter-approved amendment restoring rights to more than 1.4 million people – but the truth is, they’re trying to limit the number of new voters added to the rolls and give themselves an electoral edge.

Last year, more than 5 million Floridians voted in favor of Amendment 4 to restore voting rights to released prisoners. This latest attack on voting rights from DeSantis and state Republicans is a blatant rebuke of the voters’ will.
It’s clear that Republican state legislators are acting with political motivations – in a state where elections are decided by razor-thin margins, they’re using all the anti-democratic tricks up their sleeves to hold on to power.
We have to fight back. Stand with Florida voters! →
Thanks for taking action.
