Rick Scott: Extend Voter Registration Until After The Matthew Emergency Is Over

VICTORY! A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS EXTENDED VOTER REGISTRATION DEADLINE TO OCTOBER 18. CHECK YOUR REGISTRATION STATUS AT VOTE.ORG

Hurricane Matthew is a monster storm, fueled by global warming pollution. It cut a path of terrible destruction through the Caribbean, particularly Haiti. The death toll there is surging into the hundreds. Now it is pummeling Florida, where President Obama declared a state of emergency on Thursday. Governor Rick Scott has refused to extend the voter registration deadline.

The people of Florida need to be able to focus right now on keeping themselves and their loved ones safe, not on whether they'll be able to cast their ballots.

Rick Scott is the chairman of Donald Trump's Super PAC. He is playing partisan politics with our democracy. This is unacceptable.

 

To Rick Scott, Governor of Florida: 

Extend the Florida voter registration deadline until after the Hurricane Matthew emergency is over.

    New voters should not be penalized due to natural disasters beyond their abilities to control.
