Sen. Bill 90 restricts voter rights

By Staff | Mar 24, 2021

To the editor:

Florida Senate Bill 90 proposed by Gov. DeSantis would restrict voting rights retroactively, requiring some Floridians, who are already registered to vote in his upcoming gubernatorial race, to re-register.

Not a single county registrar of voters requested this. Indeed, the League of Women Voters and EVERY single registrar in every single county in Florida came out in opposition to the legislation leaving committee. The Republican-dominated committee nonetheless authorized the bill to be taken to the floor for a vote.

Those who believe in democracy should contact their representative Senators and House members to demand a vote against this shameless proposal to disenfranchise Floridian voters.
