ACLU Sues Over Florida Law That Requires Felons To Pay Fees, Fines Before Voting

A group of voting rights advocates and felons has filed a lawsuit after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis approved a law that could make it more difficult for felons to vote.

The new law requires felons to pay any outstanding court fines or fees before they can cast their ballots — a requirement that the American Civil Liberties Union describes as creating “two classes of returning citizens: a group wealthy enough to afford their voting rights and another group who cannot afford to vote.”
