“Florida extends voter registration deadline after website failure”

Politico:

Florida extended the deadline for voter registration after the state’s online portal crashed under the weight of heavy traffic hours before the Oct. 5 deadline.

Registration will be open for an additional seven hours, from noon to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Secretary of State Laurel Lee said in a written statement.

The move should short-circuit a lawsuit that civil rights and voting groups were preparing to file early Tuesday.
