Voting Rights Coalition Files Suit Over Florida Voter Purge


Advancement Project Co-Chair Penda Hair said it was "shameful that Governor Scott is violating federal law to remove the voting rights of thousands of American citizens, with a glaringly disparate impact on Black and Latino citizens who are perfectly eligible to vote."

One of the plaintiffs in the case said she never received notification that she would be purged from the list unless she proved she was a U.S. citizen while another responded but should have never been on the list in the first place, according to the lawsuit.

The Justice Department sued the state over its voter list purge earlier this month, alleging they violated the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).
