Throw out the indictment behind donald trump in a second but almost no judge will take the political leanings into consideration unless they are so extreme and so over the top so this judge is making the argument that the five point seven trillion dollar companies. Four of them they should be. They should be treated as if they are the local lebanese restaurant in midtown new york city.

"In two thousand eighteen Floridians voted in favor of restoring the right to vote for millions of formerly incarcerated felons, but by mid twenty nineteen Republican Governor Rick Desanta S- and the Republican led state legislature passed a law, prohibiting former felons from voting until they paid off any outstanding fines and fees connected to their case, a confusing payment system combined with the financial hardships that many face meant that the majority of felons in Florida wouldn't be able to pay these fines and would never have their voting rights restored. Last month, however, a federal judge ruled that law unconstitutional, and in violation of the twenty fourth amendment, calling it a quote pay to vote system Sean. Morales Doyle is a senior counsel in the Democracy Program at the Brennan Center for Justice, and he was one of the attorneys representing the plaintiffs in the trial, challenging the law, the Twenty Fourth Amendment, which prohibited poll taxes actually said you can't make boating contingent on pink, a poll tax or other tax, the folks the wrote the twenty four. Th Manu that maybe states would try to be creative about how they would could a price tag on boating, and that's what Florida did so this wasn't exactly A. A poll tax, but it was requiring people to pay taxes to vote, and the judge said that violates the twenty fourth amendment according to Sean about nearly eight hundred thousand people formerly charged with felonies in Florida will now get their voting rights restored in terms of race. This policy of disenfranchisement in Florida and across the country disproportionately impacts people color in Florida. The impact on the radio was really stunning prior to the passage amendment for it was decimated that one out of every five black voting age adults in Florida was disenfranchised result of a conviction in their past the data that our expert got together showed that not only is. December enticements something. Something, that disproportionately impacts lack Floridians, but that this requirement hang devote disproportionately impacts them that the vast majority of people who have conviction oh some money, because the Florida criminals justice system just keeps debt on people, but black flea are more likely to own money and more likely to Oh more money than their white counterparts, but the majority of people with felony convictions in Florida are white. It has a population that is disproportionately black, compared to the general population, but actually the majority of people felony convictions Florida are white, and so it's also important to think about this, not in terms of race, but in as you point out in terms of income. Income in terms of wealth and the claim that we want on back in the fall in that we want again on after this trial, one of the claims was this is unconstitutional wealth discrimination, obviously people who go through the criminal justice system the economic realities that they'd face are pretty dire. It's hard to get a job and most of them go into the criminal justice system already in a bad spot when it comes to money well so I'm curious whether the judge acknowledged that disparity, the racial and economic disparities in his decision and we're talking about judge Robert Hinkle here. Who decided the case whose at the US District Court in Tallahassee? Yes. He did acknowledge one of our claims was that this is actually a form of price discrimination and the judge held that this law wasn't passed with the intent to discriminate against Black Floridians, although he said that was a close call, but in ruling on that claim, he acknowledged the disproportionate impact that has on black. And of course ruling on the wealth, discrimination can be made very clear that he thinks that it's unconstitutional to deny someone the right to vote because they're going to afford it, and he has acknowledged this disparity in the past as well it is. There's no doubt that Florida's legislature in new. When they passed this law that they were passing a law that was gonNA. Disproportionately impact Black Floridians that was made clear to them. Our Client League women voters the end of Lacey Pe- in many many others were sounding the alarm about the impact. This would have on the black community in Florida and they went ahead and passed away knowing the impact that it would have. and. The judge said it was a close call whether they did that intentionally to discriminate against Black Floridians ultimately decided that it wasn't that we hadn't proven that it was intentional, but there's no doubt that everyone knew and the impact that it was going to happen that it has in fact headed. Sean given the fact that this has gone back and forth and the community that we're talking about here is probably gotten a lot of mixed messages, and now, of course we're dealing with a global pandemic, which is affecting among other things, our ability to get out to the polls into vote. How are former felons who now have the ability to vote? What is it that they can do to make sure that they're taking advantage of that opportunity given the coronavirus crisis that we're facing right now among other things. It's great question Florida. Thankfully in some respects, Florida elections are more prepared for this pandemic than some other states. Florida already allows anybody to vote by mail and Florida. Already has a system of unlike registration. So folks can start getting registered now. They can do it from home. And they can vote from home as well and so. Hopefully in that respect, Florida's made this a little bit easier on people to your point, it really has been shameful. How the state in addition to passing this law that doesn't franchise so many people also just made it impossible for people to know whether they were eligible or not it just. Failed to provide any guidance whatsoever, and as the judge described it. This was an administrative trainwreck this loan. They didn't just put a price tag on voting. They made it so people can't even figure out what the price is in. Florida is impossible to figure out what you and so the judge's opinion. I would say he did, too. One of them was make sure that everyone got their rights restored, but just as important was that he provided a way for people to know whether they're eligible and to get registered. And he gave clarity people and said that these financial obligations don't count against you. If you're unable to afford them, you can get registered now. Now and if you don't know what you owe, in can't figure out whether unable to afford them. He provided a process for asking the state for an opinion on that. And if you don't get an answering through, you can get registered, so he's cleared the way for people to start getting registered, and thankfully Florida's got the mechanisms in place for people to. To do that and to get boating without having to risk their health, Sean. I want to ask you before as we're wrapping up here one ask you a little bit about the likelihood that this population will vote, and if they do turn out to vote, you mentioned the former felon population. Florida is up in the hundreds of thousands of people who've now essentially been given the green light to vote. How likely is it that this population will vote in two thousand twenty, and if they do turn out to the polls? What effect could that have given that Florida? As.

homeless have a number of options to get their ballots counted Eric Tegethoff has that story Hillary Coleman with Seattle king county coalition on homelessness says it's important to understand there is a difference between a mailing address Anna residential address and that folks can use their mailing address to register to vote most people might have somewhere where they get checks for example if they're on social security or at them where they're at a loved one night and then a piece of mail and so we talk about using that address to register Coleman says a person can register to vote using any address including an intersection near where they're staying or shelter even if they don't get mail there she says some people get their mail through case managers or low barrier options like the compass center day services in downtown Seattle port of Seattle king county coalition on homelessness is education work involves going out to day centres meal programs or organize ten cities places where people who are unsheltered are likely to be during the day Coleman says one important want to know about is the voting rights restoration act passed in two thousand eight it ensures that anyone with a felony you can vote once they're done reporting to the department of corrections a lot of people still don't know about that and let me get someone saying they can't both that's the most common reason why someone might think they can't that Coleman has that they have volunteers who have experienced homelessness helping with voter engagement I think there are some of the greatest
