U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown announced this morning she is leading a federal civil rights lawsuit to block changes to Florida’s early voting laws.
“Early voting has worked extremely well for all Floridians and especially for African American voters,” Brown said. “In fact, more than any other racial or ethnic group, African Americans have come to rely on early voting.”
The changes enacted by the Republican Legislature shorten the number of early voting days to 10 from 15 and eliminated voting on the Sunday before the election, as well as allowed county supervisors discretion over the number of hours polls are open.
