Florida Republicans considering new election bill that would effectively ban giving voters water
Florida Republicans have introduced a new bill aimed at improving voter confidence by restricting access to the ballot box. The bill in question would require voters to request mail ballots more frequently, add more identification requirements for mail voting, and limit how drop boxes are used. It would also ban giving any item—including food and water—or interacting with voters within 150 feet of a polling location. This provision is similar to one included in a recent election reform law enacted in Georgia.
