From an Advancement Project press release:
As an answer to fixing Florida’s flawed election system, State Senator Oscar Braynon, along with civil rights organizations Florida New Majority and Advancement Project, are joining North Miami resident Desiline Victor to introduce a bill that will protect and improve the right to vote in Florida.
Sen. Braynon’s SB 888 – Desiline’s Free and Fair Democracy Act – helps modernize the state’s voting system and enshrines the fundamental right to vote into state law.
The event is at the North Miami Public Library, where Ms. Victor, age 102, was forced to stand in line for hours before being able to cast her ballot. Her story became national news when Advancement Project brought her to the attention of the White House, after the organization discovered her during her struggle to vote. President Barack Obama recounted her voting experience during the recent State of the Union address, as Ms. Victor received a standing ovation from lawmakers while sitting in First Lady Michelle Obama’s box.
