Political Group Ask Crist to Say “No” to No Match Law

September 25th, 2008 by flanews

A political group is asking Governor Charlie Crist to suspend a new voter registration requirement. Progress Florida says the No Match No Vote Law unfairly target minorities. The law requires voter registration applications to be checked against a state database. If corrections on the forms arent made by Election Day, voters will have to cast a provisional ballot. Theyll then have two days to verify their social security or drivers license number if they want their vote to be counted. Progress Florida Political Directory Damian Filer said the law could discourage some people from voting.

Every person who wants to go out and have their voice heard in November should have that opportunity, and the last thing that we should be doing right now is throwing hurdles in their way and making it more difficult to vote, Filer said.

Progress Florida has added an online petition to its website. The group plans to deliver the signatures to Governor Crist. You can view the petition at http://www.progressflorida.org/ProtectOurVote.
