Statement by Secretary of State Ken Detzner Regarding the Federal Court Decision Approving Florida’s Early Voting Schedule
Judge rules in favor of Department of State in Brown v. Detzner
Tallahassee, Florida –
"We are very pleased to have yet another court give its full approval of Florida’s new early voting schedule. We have always believed that the new hours will favor Florida voters, and we are confident voters will approve of the new hours as well once they experience the benefits of the new schedule. Florida’s new early voting hours offer more flexibility to vote before and after work, more weekend voting hours and guarantee a day of Sunday voting."
