Florida becomes the second state to pass an overhaul of its voting laws that make it easier to vote but harder to cheat. The bill has passed both chambers of the legislature on a party-line vote.
The Senate passed it 23-17 vote and the House in a 77-40 vote. The bill will now go to gov Ron DeSantis who is expected to sign it very soon. The bill offers new identification requirements and restrictions on mail-in voting and drop boxes.
The bill is being heavily panned by Democrats and the liberal media even though they have probably never read the bill. They will pan any law that makes it hard to manufacture votes. Imagine if the swing states had these laws prior to the 2020 election? It would have been a whole new ballgame.
Voters can have no more than one mail-in ballot to prevent vote harvesting which could hurt them with nursing home dementia vote.
Drop boxes will only be available during the early voting period and the boxes will be supervised. There can be no campaigning within 150 feet of the drop boxes.
Provisions that were dropped by the bill include It doesn’t ban drop boxes or require someone to show identification when placing their ballot in a dropbox, and doesn’t introduce stricter signature verification mandates.
Jenny Beth Martin, honorary chairman of the conservative Tea Party Patriots Action, said :
“We need to restore public trust in our elections. We thank the Florida legislators who voted for this bill, and we look forward to having Governor DeSantis sign it into law.”
“This law, like so many others being pursued by Republicans in statehouses across the country is a blatant attack on the Constitution and good conscience,” President Joe Biden said in a statement.
