Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis
Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law that requires individuals with felony records to pay back all fees and fines before their right to vote is restored. This came after the people of Florida voted by a wide margin to restore the right to vote to all Floridians who had served their time.
Let’s be clear: Gov. DeSantis is supporting a poll tax that disproportionately impacts Floridians of color.
Gov. DeSantis has also been accused of voter suppression for shutting down the Florida voter registration website for maintenance in the days leading up to National Voter Registration Day. Gov. DeSantis is scared of Florida voters getting to make their voices heard, so he is trying to make it harder for them to vote.
