Illegal Purge of Voter Rolls (2014)
When Florida started removing voters from its rolls within the 90 days before a federal election, FELN and other national partners stepped in to defend those voters’ rights. Along with Project Vote, LatinoJustice PRLDEF and Advancement Project, FELN asserted that removing voters that close to an election violated federal law meant to give citizens enough time to correct any state errors before trying to vote. In the end, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit agreed and ruled that the purge violated the National Voter Registration Act. For more information, see our press release on the decision.
