Florida becomes the second state to pass voting laws that make it easier to vote but harder to cheat like the voting law in Georgia; the Democrats are furious and acting out in deceitful ways, attempting to redirect the will of the American people of all colors and backgrounds. Marxists are furious, claiming discrimination.
“If signed, it would require signature verification for voters, provided by a “wet signature” physically signed on paper kept on file, and access to drop boxes would be limited to early voting hours unless they are located at election supervisors’ offices. Drop boxes would also have to be monitored in-person by an elections official, and ID would be required when dropping off ballots,” The Epoch Times reported.
TAKES THE LEFT DOWN AT THE KNEES
Other aspects in the bill include limitations on who can return a finished mail-in ballot, preventing election officials from entering consent agreements, and requiring voters to request a mail ballot every election cycle, rather than every two, as under current law.
The legislation would also ban anyone from “engaging in any activity with the intent to influence or effect of influencing a voter” but allow election supervisors to provide “non-partisan assistance,” such as giving items, including food and water, to voters within the restricted zones.
Democrats demand they have the right over states to force ballots from invalidated sources to be accepted, even when it has the power to throw the entire election.
Consider Aaron Parnas, a leftist lawyer who often posts in favor of Mail-in Ballot Harvesting:
In 2020, Florida Democrats voted by mail 700,000 more times than Republicans.
In response, the Florida GOP decided to make it harder to vote by mail, by making Floridians re-register every election cycle.
This is voter suppression.

The Senate passed the new law in the Senate 23-17 vote and the House in a 77-40 vote. The bill offers new identification requirements and restrictions on mail-in voting and drop boxes.
Why are Democrat lawyers using their position to lie about what the federal law is? How is Florida passing a law about how they will handle mail-in votes, in any way “unconstutitional”?
We cannot let the GOP continue to restrict our right to vote. Consider giving me a follow as I fight, along with the @MiamiDadeDems, to elect Democrats up and down the ballot in Florida!

Why does the American Mainstream Media insist that states, working within their Constitutional Rights to protect their citizen’s votes, are “reducing voting access”? It is almost as if they don’t understand how our country works as the Representative Republic where individuals have power at the state level to up elections.
Or perhaps they see their view as shaping public opinion for the Marxist left. Consider how the New York Times frames this.

REMEMBER THAT SCOTUS RULED ON THIS ALREADY
According to Democrats, Shelby County v. Holder gave states more leeway to pass even more restrictive voting laws, and they do not like it.
On June 25, 2013, the Court ruled by a 5 to 4 vote that Section 4(b) was unconstitutional because the coverage formula was based on data over 40 years old, making it no longer responsive to current needs and therefore an impermissible burden on the constitutional principles of federalism and equal sovereignty of the states.
Now consider this article in Vox from 2019, which is about a SCOTUS ruling from the Obama era which the left never accepted, and consider how the left has refused to respect the authority of the Supreme Court Ruling on States rights over elections for the highly suspicious 2020 Presidential election:
Shelby County v. Holder upended voting rights in America
On the sixth anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling, civil rights groups say it’s time to fully restore the Voting Rights Act.
Jun 25, 2019, 7:49pm EDT
In recent years, threats to voting rights and the possibility of voter suppression have become increasingly serious concerns for civil rights groups. This was on full display in the 2018 midterm elections, as voting laws and regulations in several states impacted high-stakes races in ways that disproportionately affected voters of color.
But the concerns raised by these elections did not originate with high-profile 2018 contests in places like Georgia and Florida, both states where black, Latino, and Asian American voters struggled to cast a ballot. Instead, these issues can in part be directly traced back to a 2013 Supreme Court ruling in the case Shelby County v. Holder.
That ruling, which turns six years old this week, invalidated a key portion of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, long seen as one of the most important civil rights laws of the past century. On June 25, 2013, the court’s conservative majority ruled that the government was using an outdated and unconstitutional process to determine which states were required to have their voting rules approved by the government. Before the ruling, nine states (and several other counties and townships) had been subjected to this requirement.”
CONNECT THE DOTS
So 7 years ago, SCOTUS ruled that States have the right to change voter laws, so the left devised a massive scheme to resist that ruling.
HISPANICS ARE SUING FOR LOSS OF CIVIL RIGHTS IN THE ELECTION REMEMBER
Democrats want to pretend that minorities did not vote for President Donald J. Trump; however, they did, and now their Civil Rights have been infringed.
We carried that story here:
Trump thought it was about Civil Rights, here:
North Carolina had started talking about Civil Rights infections before the election:
And that is where we are today, asking the question, who has Civil Rights in America? Do voters have Civil Rights?
