SB 90 prescribes stricter requirements for voter identification for postal votes, restricts, among other things, the question of who can pick up and return a voter’s ballot, and prohibits, among other things, the private financing of elections.
“I’ll sign this bill and say, ‘Florida, your vote counts. Your vote is cast with integrity and transparency, and this is a great place for democracy, ”DeSantis said after signing the bill, reiterating that deceptive Republican catchphrase: integrity.
Just minutes after DeSantis signed the law, a coalition that includes the Florida League of Women Voters and the Black Voters Matter Fund filed a lawsuit to challenge several provisions of the new law.
The Democratic MP Michael Grieco saw clear parallels between Georgia’s SB 202 and Florida’s SB 90.
“This bill passed in the state north of us sent us a message and the response to this bill should let us know that we shouldn’t,” he said during the House debate earlier this year.
Grieco also appealed, “Please not Georgia my Florida.”
