Judge extends Florida voter registration deadline because of hurricane

A federal judge disagreed with Florida Governor Rick Scott, pictured in July 2016 at the Republican National Convention, about extending the voter registration deadline, giving Floridians another 24 hours to get their registrations in the mail in time to participate in November’s election. Scott dismissed concerns before and after Hurricane Matthew about extending the deadline as “political” maneuvering and unnecessary. File photo by Kevin Dietsch/UPI | License Photo
