Florida Approves Sweeping Voter Suppression Bill

HeadlineApr 30, 2021

The Republican-controlled Legislature in Florida has approved a sweeping voter suppression bill that is being compared to Georgia’s new voting law. The Florida bill would limit the use of mail ballot drop boxes, make it harder to vote by mail, and criminalize the distribution of food and water to people waiting in line to vote. Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has signaled he will sign the bill into law. Kara Gross of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida criticized the bill, saying, “There was no problem in Florida. Everything worked as it should. The only reason they’re doing this is to make it harder to vote.”
