Deutch Statement on FL Extending Voter Registration Deadline Following Website Crash
After Florida Secretary of State Laurel Lee announced an extension of the voter registration deadline due to the website crashing yesterday, U.S. Representative Ted Deutch (FL-22) issued this statement:
"The most important thing is that every eligible voter in Florida deserves the full window of time to register. We cannot let a system failure prevent Floridians from exercising their right to vote, and this surge in applications highlights the strong desire among Floridians to make their voices heard.
"Next step is to investigate what happened and make sure it doesn't happen again. Florida voters need full faith in our state's ability to execute this election smoothly and efficiently."
