Ten Days No More

August 13th, 2008 by flanews

Groups hosting voter registration drives may soon face deadlines and penalties. A Federal Judge upheld a law setting a 10 day deadline for groups to turn in registration applications after they have been signed. Several groups, including the League of Women Voters, sued to keep the state from setting a time limit. Secretary of State Spokeswoman Jennifer Davis said people who register at a drive should be guaranteed their application will be processed quickly.

What happens when a 3rd party voter registration group accepts someones registration, theyve accepted someones right to vote and if they dont turn it in time for an election, theyve basically block that person from voting. Theyve taken away their right, said Davis.

The Secretary of State is still working out the details of the rule. Davis says the deadline wont be in place in time to affect groups registering voters for the November election.
