It probably comes as no surprise that Florida is ground zero in the nationwide fight over voter suppression. And the ACLU has been right in the middle of it.
When they passed a law making voter registration next to impossible here in Florida, we (along with the Brennan Center) went to court on behalf of the League of Women Voters and other groups and won.
Now they're trying to purge hundreds, possibly thousands of rightfully-registered voters off the rolls — and we (along with the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law) filed a lawsuit to prevent it.
Governor Rick Scott just won't quit. He's bound and determined to block the vote in Florida — especially for minority voters.
Tell Governor Scott the ACLU is on alert and won't let him derail or deny anyone's voting rights.
The ACLU is fighting tooth and nail all across the country to protect people's right to vote. And we won't stop fighting — not here in Florida, not anywhere.
Florida is a key battleground in our effort to make sure people aren't denied this most fundamental freedom. Let's make it clear we won't let any attack against that fundamental right go unanswered.
Act now. Tell Governor Scott that we won't stand for any voter suppression ploys.
We know when we stand together we can make a difference. But they are going to throw everything they've got at us in the six months leading up to Election Day. With your help, I'm confident that whenever and wherever people's right to vote is put in jeopardy, the ACLU will be there — protecting the right to vote and the Voting Rights Act that people fought so hard for almost 50 years ago.
Let's keep fighting,
