League of Women Voters, Rock the Vote Resume Voter Registration in Florida
Bolstered by a federal judge's decision, the League of Women Voters and Rock the Vote say they are back in the business of registering Florida voters.
Although both organizations registered voters prior to 2011, the passage of House Bill 1355 established "onerous and impracticable requirements for third-party voter registration," the groups said.
Now, after a federal judge preliminarily blocked the law's provision requiring that completed registration forms must be submitted within 48 hours, LWV and Rock the Vote registrars are heading back onto the streets.
"It's time for our volunteers to work overtime to make up for lost ground," said Deirdre Macnab, president of the LWV's Florida operation.
