Might as well set up voting booths in court
The Legislature’s endless tinkering with Florida’s voting machinery guarantees two things: constant controversy over the election laws and plenty of work for lawyers.
The latest development came this week in a 3-year-old lawsuit filed by the AFL-CIO and other unions that are busy seeking to expand the pool of Democratic voters in the nation’s biggest swing state.
The unions challenged a state law that prevents election supervisors from allowing voters to fix mistakes on their registration forms less than 29 days before an election. The law says if the form doesn’t exactly match other database information, a person can’t vote.
