Judge’s Ruling Means 14,000 Can Cast Ballots Next Month

December 28th, 2007 by flanews

Florida has lost the latest round in the ongoing legal battle over the state’s voter registration law.  A federal judge issued an injunction that prevents Florida from enforcing the “no match” law.  Information on a voter registration application had to match information found in state or federal databases in order for a voter to be eligible to vote. The latest ruling means that 14,000 voters who were initially deemed ineligible can cast a ballot next month.

“The essential focus from the state’s perspective is just to prevent fraud in the election process,” said Sterling Ivey, a spokesperson for the Florida Secretary of State.  “To prevent someone from registering, non-residents, non-human beings, in order to sway the votes cast.”

Monday is the deadline to register to vote for the January 29th primary.
