Grassroots Groups Urge Gov. DeSantis to Veto Anti-Voter Bill

This morning, two dozen organizations sent Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis a letter urging him to veto the anti-voter bill, SB 90.

The letter said the legislation “will create barriers for eligible Floridians to exercise their freedom to vote  by making mail ballots less accessible and more difficult to cast, severely limiting voter assistance, and making it more difficult for community voter registration drives to do their critical outreach. We ask you to do the right thing by Florida voters, stand by your pride in Florida’s 2020 election administration, and veto this harmful bill.”

“We are particularly concerned that SB 90, by design, seeks to silence voters’ voices based on what they look like or where they come from,” the organizations said.

Organizations that signed the letter include:

Fair Elections Center

ACLU of Florida
