Sign the petition: Urge the DOJ to investigate new Florida voting rule which closes all restrooms...
Miami-Dade County’s new rule to close restrooms at polling places will depress voter turnout, considering that we saw voting lines in the last presidential election of over six hours.
It is also probably illegal, as people with disabilities must use the bathroom more frequently.
Please open a federal investigation on the legality of this new Florida rule.
Why is this important?
Remember how bad the voter lines were on Election Day in 2012? In Florida, some stayed in line for over six hours.
And now, they won’t be able to use the bathroom. The Miami-Dade County Elections Department has quietly implemented a policy to close the bathrooms at all polling facilities.
Voters would have to choose between voting, or using the bathroom.
Make no mistake about it. This is a political scheme to depress voter turnout in a heavily Democratic county, and it’s also probably illegal for violating basic disability law.
Sign the petition: Urge U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate this new Florida voting rule which closes all restrooms at polling places on Election Day.
