MIAMI (AP) The right to vote was restored for most Florida felons as of Tuesday, increasing the pool of eligible voters by as many as 1.4 million people in a battleground state infamous for its narrow margins in key elections.
The Florida Rights Restoration Coalition planned to get people together over breakfast before registering online or going to their local election supervisors offices to fill out the forms.
We are encouraging our members to celebrate, said organizations president, Desmond Meade. Our members are going into the supervisor of elections with their loved ones.
