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.”
