Florida Democratic Party Chair Rizzo Calls On DeSantis To Drop Amendment 4 Challenge “Let Returning Citizens Register To Vote”

1 min read

The U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected a motion to reconsider a ruling that Florida may not bar former felons from registering to vote because they cannot afford to pay fees.

Terrie Rizzo, chair of the Florida Democratic Party, released the following statement in response to the ruling:

“Floridians overwhelmingly voted to pass Amendment 4 over 500 days ago. Governor Ron DeSantis please do the right thing, stop the legal maneuvering, and let returning citizens register to vote.”

Florida Democrats believe in effective and efficient government that prioritizes quality education, affordable health care, and an economy in which anyone who works hard can succeed.

Most importantly, we believe that we are stronger together. We believe the fundamental American promise — that you can go as far as your own hard work will take you — should shine brightest in Florida.

That is why we champion the middle class and cherish the principle that all Floridians should have the opportunity to work hard and succeed. That is why we will never stop fighting for better public schools, because education is the surest path to a better life for millions.

From standing for affordable health care and better schools to fighting for civil rights and access to the ballot box, Florida Democrats are leading every day to move our state forward.
