BREAKING: Gov. DeSantis announced that Florida WILL join the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC). This is something that the League and all of Florida's Supervisors of Elections have supported for several years! Clean voter rolls means a healthier democracy. ...
It’s a farce to believe anything we vote for will actually be enacted. The GOP always figures out a way around it.
If voters vote to ban, the GOP legislators and 45 governor will "rewrite" the bill. So important to vote the GOP out of offices. Btw, won't happen here in Citrus County
If you insist on putting people's rights up for deciding by mob rule then at least stop saying it won't ban virtually every semi-automatic rifle.
Then watch the GOP Legislature define it out of existence!
Just like we voted on giving voting rights back to felons?
I’ll never support this Amendment as written, for but not limited to as noted below;
No Amendment in a Constitution shall make any person a “felon” as this one does, and depriving of rights,
No Amendment shall take the property of a spouse nor (family) as this one does while demanding that you and me turn it over to the State as this one does,
This Amendment as written openly violates not only the 5th Amendment by self-incrimination by failure to register a firearm as per SCOTUS in Haynes V US (1968).
If this Amendment passes with a criminal charge. What’s next, passing one to make women whom have abortions to pre register or be charged as felons?
It’s also saying as to how many signed and voted for given felons the right to vote, but now want to make felons out of families and law biding residents.
Show the voters a clean Amendment and then maybe you can get better support. The people also get tired of hidden and/or gotcha clauses.
*Add On to this misleading Amendment to see how sneaky they have tried to get, when you look at the signs and such. Now the people are lied to, as they play simple word emotions....
as always REPUKICANS go against the will OF THE PEOPLE......
The new law requiring felons in Florida to pay all their fines and court fees before getting their voting rights restored would leave about 80 percent of them unable to register, according to research.
I voted to restore voting rights to formerly incarcerated persons. There was nothing on the ballot that mentioned a quasi-legal poll tax. Miami found a way around this poll tax, let's find a way to extend those protections throughout the state.
Just when I had lost track of JIM CROW, he bubbles up from a swamp we call Florida.
Yet, the Florida legislature has no problem with someone who could pay their way out of going to trial for a crime to becoming the Governor and Senator.
Poll tax on the poor & ppl of color!! 🤬🤬
This is a pole tax, period!
Every time the “people” bring forth an Amendment that gets approved at the polls, the Florida legislative body figures out a way to not implement the “intent” of that amendment. It’s disgusting.
This is what was voted on. No problems having the pay their debts prior to restoration of their voting rights.
This is just wrong and it negates the will of the people who voted for the amendment!
Time to fundraise!!
This is a prime example of where the headline sounds great. But the wording is a gotcha.
Just like the Assault Weapons Ban is misleading as the wording does a lot harm.
FLORIDA LAW 95.11 STATUES OF LIMITATION IS FIVE YEARS
It's the ONLY way REPUBS win-CHEAT!
Not the will of the people of Florida.
VOTE OUT THE GOP!!!!!
This is bullshit!!
Wow. That’s ridiculous.
Felons shouldn’t have voting rights. Much like they’ve forfeited the right to own a gun. You’re a Felon! You have up your civil liberties when you chose to commit a felony!!!
Fascists are destroying our Democracy.
Maybe we need a Constitutional Amendment that forbids the Legislature from making these 11th hour changes to our Constitutional Amendments. I know what I voted for and it was NOT for a Poll Tax it was to free the 25% of my fellow African American Citizens in the State of Florida who have had their Votes and their Voices stolen for too long by a corrupt State Legislature.
"The shadowy effort exposes the loophole in state and federal disclosure laws as it relates to political influence. Florida law does not prohibit dark-money groups from contributing to political committees via in-kind contributions and effectively allows them to shield donors from voters. But the lack of transparency has some election watchdog groups concerned." ...
A secretive organization with the goal of thwarting any future amendment approved by voters has spent more than $800,000 on paid petition gatherers in the last month, using funds from undisclosed sources.
"The Andrew Goodman Foundation said nearly 60,000 registered voters in nine Florida counties used the early in-person ballots at 12 on-campus locations in the midterm elections. The report comes as the foundation and League of Women Voters of Florida are suing the state over a new election law, passed under Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, which they say will burden young voters." ...
