Florida’s House of Representatives and Senate have passed a bill creating new voting restrictions on Thursday night.
The bill includes new identification and signature requirements for voting by mail, limiting who can return a completed mail-in ballot, and restrictions for drop box use.
The legislation is backed by most Republicans.
Democrats claim it unfairly targets people of color.
The bill now goes to the governor’s desk for a signature.
A spokesperson for the governor said DeSantis supports the bill, saying it “will ensure that Florida remains a national leader in election security, integrity and transparency,” ABC News reported.
Five states have already implemented election changes since November. Florida is poised to become the sixth.
