In response to a federal court overturning Florida’s prohibition of early voting locations on college and university campuses, League president Patricia Brigham offered the following statement:
“We applaud Judge Mark Walker for his ruling. This is truly a victory for the citizens of Florida, especially with so many young people motivated to vote.
“The court ruling demonstrates that making it easier for our students to vote truly matters. This is the right decision, at the right time, for our democratic process. With this decision, we have an affirmation that making early voting accessible to all is part of a true democracy.
“We especially congratulate the students who raised their voices for a fair democracy. These young leaders are a positive example to us all.”
