DeSantis: Florida’s New Voting Law Adds ‘Strongest Election Integrity’

While signing the state’s new voting law during a television appearance early Thursday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis hailed the legislation’s focus on election security, saying the legislation adds the “strongest election integrity measures in the country.”

“We’re making sure we’re enforcing voter ID,” DeSantis commented during his Fox News appearance from West Palm Beach, where he signed the legislation in front of cheering supporters. “We’re also banning ballot harvesting. We’re not going to let political operatives go and get satchels of votes to dump them in some dropbox.”

Florida’s Senate Bill 90 also prohibits “mass mailing of balloting,” the governor said. “We’ve had absentee voting in Florida for a long time. You request the ballot, you get it, and you mail it in. But to just indiscriminately send them out is not a recipe for success.”
