Oppose Senate Bill 90

Act Now

Tallahassee politicians are trying to make it harder for Floridians to cast a ballot by mail. It’s blatant voter suppression and we need to make our voices heard.

This bill is a part of a nationwide effort to create more obstacles for voters to exercise their right to vote. Tell the Senate Rules Committee to vote NO on Senate Bill 90.

I am writing to ask you to oppose Senate Bill 90.

Throughout our history, we have fought to ensure that every eligible American is able to cast their vote and have it counted. Now, a few politicians in Tallahassee want to severely restrict voting, creating unnecessary barriers that will make it harder for Floridians trying to exercise their fundamental right to vote.

SB 90 will severely restrict Florida voters’ access to vote-by-mail. Approximately 4.8 million voters in Florida cast their ballots by mail in 2020, in the highest turnout election we’ve had for decades. More than 1.5 million Floridians used a drop-box during the 2020 Election to safely, conveniently, and securely return their ballot.

SB 90 creates completely unnecessary and burdensome obstacles that will impact Floridians’ ability to cast a ballot by mail in future elections.

Senate Bill 90 will:
- Force voters to submit vote-by-mail requests more often than is currently required, a completely unnecessary administrative hurdle.

- Retroactively cancel voters’ current vote-by-mail ballot requests, meaning a voter who submitted a request last year thinking it was valid through next year’s election will need to submit a new request.

- Make it a crime for voters to ask a trusted friend or caregiver to pick up or drop off a vote-by-mail ballot, limiting voting access for elderly, working, and mobility-impaired Floridians who cannot retrieve or turn in their ballot themselves.

- Eliminate secure vote-by-mail drop boxes, which more than 1.5 million Floridians used during the 2020 Election to safely, conveniently, and securely return their ballot.

Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy, and Senate Bill 90 makes administering elections in Florida more burdensome and unnecessarily difficult.

I urge you to focus your time and efforts on dismantling barriers to voting in Florida. Floridians need our elected leaders to focus on delivering pandemic relief, not erecting new barriers to voting that will lead to more voter suppression in our state.

Please vote NO on Senate Bill 90 and protect Florida voters’ right to cast their ballots by mail.

Sincerely,

[First Name] [Last Name]
