At least someone is challenging Florida’s governor, Rick Scott, on his late-season voter purge.
Civil and voting rights organizations filed suit today alleging the purge violates Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, which bans discrimination in voting practices. “This lawsuit will protect eligible voters in every county in Florida from walking into a polling place only to find that the state has erroneously decreed they cannot participate in this election,” Catherine M. Flanagan, director of Project Vote’s Election Administration Program, said in a statement. “This purge is profoundly undemocratic and must be stopped.”
Florida officials insist the purge is necessary to prevent voter fraud, despite the fact that no evidence of widespread voter fraud exists.
