Florida’s Voting Restrictions Burden Minority Population, Justice Dept. Argues

Florida unfairly burdened the state’s minorities by reducing early voting house the Justice Department lawyers argued before a three-judge District panel in Washington D.C., the Chicago Tribune reports.

The new rules are intended to ward off voter fraud by requiring people who moved between counties to fie provisional ballots. Counties also are permitted to reduce the number of early voting days and adjust voter precinct hours.

The Justice Department points out that 55 percent of black voters used early voting periods to cast their ballots, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Under the 1965 Voting Rights Act, federal approval for electoral changes must be sought by states with a history of discrimination.
