Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Friday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. Coming up today we'll discuss rallies planned next Tuesday across the state calling for voting reform. During last November's elections (and in the weeks before) voters in several Florida counties faced long lines. By some estimates hundreds of thousands of people became discouraged and did not vote because of new voting hurdles imposed by the state government. The progressive activist group Awake the State is planning a series of rallies and marches next week calling on the state to make it easier to vote. We're joined now by two awake the State members- Kofi Hunt and Mike Long.
