NewFM se une a una demanda para extender el registro de votantes

El huracán Michael podría evitar que innumerables votantes se registren para votar. Este es un derecho fundamental y debemos asegurarnos de que todos los floridanos puedan participar.

A medida que el huracán Michael llega a tierra en el norte de Florida, la Nueva Mayoría de la Florida se une a la ACLU y otros grupos de derechos de voto pidiendo al estado que extienda los plazos de inscripción de votantes hasta después de que termine la tormenta.

"El huracán Michael podría evitar que innumerables votantes, independientemente de su afiliación política, se registren para votar", dijo Moné Holder, director principal de programas de la Nueva Mayoría de la Florida. “Este acto de la naturaleza, junto con el mal funcionamiento del sitio web de registro de votantes documentado es un doble golpe para nuestras comunidades. "La votación es un derecho fundamental y debemos asegurarnos de que los floridanos tengan una oportunidad ilimitada de participar en el proceso electoral".

La nueva mayoría de la Florida ha sido un incansable defensor del acceso de los votantes desde su inicio, instando constantemente al estado a que tome en cuenta las emergencias climáticas antes de los plazos de inscripción de votantes. En 2016, fue parte de una demanda exitosa que extendió los plazos de inscripción de votantes tras el huracán Mathew, permitiendo que más de 108,000 residentes se registren para votar.
