Florida Appeals Order Blocking Voter-Registration Rules

Florida officials told a federal appeals court that they may seek to reverse a lower court order blocking the enforcement of the state’s restrictions on voter- registration groups.

The Florida secretary of state, attorney general and director of the division of elections filed the notice yesterday with the U.S. Court of Appeals in Atlanta in a case brought by the League of Women Voters. The ruling they are challenging bars requirements that voter-drive groups turn over registration materials to the state within 48 hours of completion or face fines of as much as $1,000.
