Local election officials in Florida call for scrapping new ID rules for mail voting
Florida County election supervisors are imploring the state to toss out new vote-by-mail restrictions set to go into effect next year, claiming the measures could create serious logistical and security issues. The new identification requirements would require voters to provide a driver’s license number or partial social security number on their ballots. Local election leaders claim these new requirements will create election reporting delays, various new costs for local election offices, and will potentially disenfranchise many voters. The state’s new vote-by-mail measures are part of sweeping legislation signed into law by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.
