The law also cuts the number of days for early voting and no longer allows voting on the Sunday before Election Day.
In the South many, many black church groups used the Sunday before the election as a way to remind people to vote and to arrange carpools to take people down to the polls to do early voting. Why did Florida specifically make it illegal to do early voting on the Sunday before an election? Simple. Republicans want to decrease the number of black people who vote because blacks don't vote for them.
Republicans used to love early voting and were a big part of why early voting laws were passed back in the 80's and 90's back when it was mostly elderly white people who such laws helped. Now lots of minorities have gotten organized and are taking advantage of the opportunity to vote which early voting laws provide so now Republicans all want to decrease or eliminate early voting and make it harder to register. It's all about voter suppression and everyone knows it.
