TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida will begin enforcing new restrictions on voter registration drives after the state won a legal challenge.
Secretary of State Kurt Browning said Tuesday that he plans to begin enforcement once a rule is finalized to implement the registration law.
Passed last year, it requires private groups to submit voter registration applications within 10 days and before pre-election deadlines or else face fines.
A federal judge in Miami last Wednesday rejected a legal challenge from the League of Women Voters of Florida and other groups that conduct registration drives.
