In response to the Florida voter registration website crashing on the day of the deadline to register to vote in Florida, Terrie Rizzo Chair of the Florida Democratic Party issued the following statement:
“This is just latest attempt from the Republican leaders in Florida to limit democracy. The Florida Voter Registration website not working on the last day to register to vote in Florida is blatant voter suppression. Fix the website, stop the suppression, and let democracy work.”
Notably, this is not the first time something like this has happened here in Florida.
