I read the bill, and nothing in it seems to "make it harder" for former inmates to vote. In fact, it requires that they be given the information on how to restore their voting rights. It does provide for verification that they have completed their sentence, including any associated fines that were part of the sentence. I don't see anything in this bill that makes anything harder.

It is the responsibility of every American Citizen to fulfill their rights as outlined by our Founding Father's. If you really care about America, you will remember to both, register and also to vote.

I think it is perfectly reasonable to expect felons to finish their sentence, pay all fines and pay restitution.

Early voting does not lead to voter fraud. Electronic voting machines do and unlawful handling of voter material that is supposed to be securely archived for 10 years per Florida law.

Well, despite my cynicism, I called and left the message for the Governor.

Sure. And raise the minimum age to be in the military to 35. And require military service to vote on war resolutions.

Tried to call...no one is talking to us. For weeks I have tried to get to YOHO and he does not speak to any of his constituents! This state sucks. These elected officials do not want to speak or listen to us.

My crystal ball just yelled back at me and said there is no chance of him vetoing that bill because these voters you are talking about usually vote for democrats and he is a republican. End of your wishes, case closed. Just hope the vote totals are not changed in next year's election .

Sadly it will do no good ! He is a tRumpster and could care less ! I wish Florida had paper ballots because my gut says there was hacking !

The Florida voter approved Amendment 4 by more than 60%! The GOP is gerrymandering again to control voter rights! So shameful 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

That's just it, what 14 Amendments for Floridans to vote on only to have the legislature put roadblocks on to what voters wanted!!

I think early voting leads to voter fraud. It needs to go back to one day and you have to show up in person with a proper ID.

Voter ID's are required where I live in Florida - I thought it was state law

Why don't they just issue voter photo cards. Being a driver, student or utility bill doesn't mean your a citzsen.

People.read the legislation

Why should college students vote in Florida and not their home state?

They need to raise the voting age to 25 when people are mature enough to know what they are voting for

Did anyone actually read this bill? It’s about felons being able to vote. After all fines are paid and they are released they will be allowed to vote.

Sounds great to me! Stop voter fraud by the democrats!

Anything republicans can do to bust your balls over voting is simply normal to them .

Robert W Peppel. Guess you are OK with them going to war but not allowed to vote.

Actually making it easy for registered voters to cast their ballots early?? Absolutely not signed Republican Gov DeSantis 😏

And you all think DeSantis will ever vote the right way, no way, but I’ll call🇺🇸

Republicans want to make it harder for democrats to vote..such criminals

Republicans can only win by cheating smh

Six years ago today, the U.S. Supreme Court gutted one of our nation’s most important and effective civil rights laws – the Voting Rights Act of 1965. It’s time for Congress to revive the heart of that law & restore it to its full & necessary strength. #RestoreTheVOTE
