League Files Complaint to Extend Voter Registration in Florida

The League of Women Voters of Florida (LWVFL) filed a complaint against the FL Governor and Secretary of State for refusing to extend voter registration in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. A Florida judge ruled in favor of voters, extending voter registration an additional week. The ruling cited the League’s argument that the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) provides that voter registration cutoff dates may be no more than 30 days before an election.
