Federal officials say they oppose another section of the state’s new voting law, a change-of-address provision they say may be discriminatory, reports the News Service of Florida. The Justice Department notified a federal court this week that it opposes the provision requiring a provisional ballot be cast by voters to change addresses at the polls on Election Day if moving from another county. The DOJ said earlier it opposed other parts of the new voting law dealing with the number of early voting days and new requirements for registering new voters.
