“Among the more absurd voter suppression measures is a part of the law requiring that voter registrations secured by third parties must be filed with election officials within 48 hours. Failure to accomplish that amounts to voter fraud. That has become problematic for high school civics teachers who for decades have helped their students register to vote as they neared or reached the age of 18. Because of that provision and others, the League of Women Voters, long lauded for non-partisan voter participation initiatives, suspended voter registration programs in Florida.”
