Federal Judge Stops State From Blocking Voter Registrations
A federal judge in Florida stopped that state’s “onerous” voting requirements.
“Allowing responsible organizations to conduct voter registration drives — thus making it easier for citizens to register and vote — promotes democracy,” wrote Judge Robert L. Hinkle of Federal District Court in the order granting a temporary injunction…
“If the goal is to discourage voter registration drives and thus also to make it harder for new voters to register, this may work,” the judge wrote.
“Otherwise there is little reason for such a requirement.”
