One of the most important rights of American citizens is the right to vote — the right to have a say in who our leaders are and how our government works. But the path to full voting rights for all citizens has been long and challenging. For far too many Floridians, obstacles to voting remain today.
Rick Scott and Florida Republicans have persistently worked to make it harder to vote. The results were plain to see on Election Day in 2012: lines that lasted hours, especially in minority precincts. Democrats will never stop fighting attempts to suppress our votes, and will work for reform that creates accessible, open, and fair elections — a system that ensures that every eligible person can cast a vote and that every lawfully cast vote is counted.
