Study: Florida's policies are keeping hundreds of thousands from voting

Study: Florida’s policies are keeping hundreds of thousands from voting
Tampa Bay Times, 7/11/2018

Florida is not making it easy enough for you to vote, according to a new report from the liberal Center for American Progress.

The new study, "Increasing Voter Participation in America: Policies to Drive Participation and Make Voting More Convenient," which was released Wednesday morning, details a number of policies states could enact to maximize voter turnout.

They include:
* Automatic voter registration
* Same-day voter registration
* Pre-registration
* Online registration
* At-home voting
* “No-excuse” absentee voting
* Restoring voting rights to felons
* Early voting

Florida only takes advantage of the four bolded policies, leaving untold hundreds of thousands of votes on the table every election cycle, CAP authors Danielle Root and Liz Kennedy write.
