To my fellow Florida DUers, Amendment 1 is bullshit

To summarize, Amendment 1 proposes:

The Florida Constitution currently says, "Every citizen of the United States who is at least eighteen years of age and who is a permanent resident of the state, if registered as provided by law, shall be an elector of the county where registered."

Under the ballot measure, the Florida Constitution would say, "Only a citizen of the United States who is at least eighteen years of age and who is a permanent resident of the state, if registered as provided by law, shall be an elector of the county where registered."



This amendment... is bullshit. It's a useless amendment. It is a waste of people's time and energy. This amendment does nothing but feed into the right wing conspiracy theory there is wide spread voter fraud from undocumented immigrants.

That is all.
