“DSCC asks Justice to halt Florida voting law”

Ben Smith has this post on Politico, regarding a letter from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee to DOJ’s voting rights section, asking that it deny preclearance of Florida’s recent changes to third-party voter registration, early voting, and provisional voting rules.  In so doing, DSCC joins a similar request from civil and voting rights groups.  But according to this post from the Miami Herald blog and this editorial, Florida’s Secretary of State has now asked for judicial preclearance of some provisions of the law, including those concerning registration and early voting.

Update:  The Florida Secretary of State’s office defends its decision to seek judicial preclearance of parts of its new voting law.
