They are clearly in service of partisan interests -- and we’ve already seen where that can lead.

Common Cause FL Statement on 11th Circuit Court of Appeals Decision

"The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals decision issued today is anathema to our country’s values. Our republic is stronger when more people participate. The ability to vote should never be conditioned on economic circumstances. The 'demos' in democracy means all the people decide, not the moneyed people."

UPDATE: Jones v DeSantis oral arguments

Today, the federal appeals court held oral arguments in Jones v. DeSantis, a case determining the constitutionality of wealth-based obstacles to voting. "SB 7066 limits the number of poor people who are able to vote. It creates a pay-to-vote scheme that is anathema to our country’s values. The ability to participate in our democracy should never be conditioned on economic circumstances."
