Hot Topics Luncheon Programs Are Back!
VOTER CONFUSION CONTINUES, May 11, 11:30 AM
Do you know what election laws and districts will prevail for the August and November elections? Probably not, which is why new election laws and redistricting will be our first Hot Topics program of the season. Here are the facts:
- Federal Judge Walker declared the 2021 SB 90 election law unconstitutional, winning the lawsuit led by Florida League of Women Voters. But Gov. DeSantis has vowed to appeal.
- Florida Legislature claims they are relinquishing their constitutional duty and their maps and requesting a special session to draw the Congressional maps the way Gov. DeSantis wants them.
- Judge Walker put Florida under “preclearance status” for violation of the Voter Rights Act and the 15th amendment, meaning any new election law must be approved by the court, leaving 2022 SB 524 election legislation up in the air.
