FL Legislature approves GOP voting reforms; critics call for governor to veto | Florida Phoenix

The League of Women Voters of Florida, the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, and the Fair Elections Center reacted swiftly to the final vote on the bill, all denouncing it and calling on DeSantis to veto it. League of Women Voters President Patricia Brigham called it a “terrible piece of legislation.” “The bill’s sweeping changes will undoubtedly make it harder for Floridians to cast their ballot, with a disproportionate impact on elderly voters, voters with disabilities, students and communities of color,” Brigham wrote in a statement. “Since the start of the 2021 legislative session, the League has cautioned legislators that making these types of changes to our election process will have consequential impacts on voters. Not only has a detrimental piece of legislation passed, but it was done in an undemocratic way, and the public’s voice was silenced.”
