Blog / Last Updated:

Last night, the faux-news show The Daily Show took on Florida’s new voter registration law. Among those interviewed by correspondent, John Oliver, was Deirdre McNab, president of the League of Women Voters of Florida. In the segment, Oliver investigates exactly what kind of trouble a voter registration form could get into if it isn’t turned into the State within the new 48-hour requirement.
