JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Congresswoman Corrine Brown is not done in her fight against Florida's new early voting laws even after Governor Scott said he'd like to look at to reinstating old early voting laws.
This year's election left Florida still undecided until a week after the election and Congresswoman Corrine Brown says that's reason enough to change things back.
"Florida should not be dead last. We don't even have that number of people that other states have," says Brown
So, she's trying again to pass the Easy Voting Act. She introduced it to Congress in October 2011 but it was never enacted.
The Congresswoman says Florida was once again an object of ridicule in this past election, something that previous governors had worked to fix after the 2000 election hanging chad debacle.
"And then we go drop back, for what reason? There was no other reason than to disenfranchise voters."
The Easy Voting Act requires early voting states to provide the full 14 days before the election and prevent election officials from asking for state ID from people who are registering or voting in a federal election.
