Voting Rights Advocacy groups visit Tallahassee

WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:

Last fall, voting rights activist groups protested the implementation of a new law called “No Match, No Vote.” That law, which went into effect in early September of last year, requires that voters have their personal identification match state or federal databases to be able to cast their ballots in the general election.

Recently, Florida Secretary of State Kurt Browning said that no voters were prevented from casting ballots at the polls because of the law.

But Elizabeth Westfall disagrees. She’s an attorney with the Advancement Project, which is suing the state over the law. She spoke with WMNF yesterday from Tallahassee. She was meeting with Democratic legislators about No Match, No Vote, and other voting issues.
