DeSantis Signs Bill Creating Police Unit To Handle Election Crimes

Ron DeSantis

On Monday, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law that strengthens his state’s election security measures and creates a new police unit to investigate potential violations of election laws.

“This legislation will strengthen election security measures by requiring voter rolls to be annually reviewed and updated, strengthening ID requirements, establishing the Office of Election Crimes and Security to investigate election law violations, and increasing penalties for violations of election laws,” DeSantis’ office said in a statement.

DeSantis announced his signing of the bill on Twitter, saying, “The legislation I signed today will continue to make Florida a leader in election integrity by increasing penalties for ballot harvesting, expanding our ban on Zuckerbucks, and establishing an election integrity unit in state government to enforce our laws.”

“Twenty years ago, nobody thought Florida was a prime example of how to conduct elections, but we have become a national leader by running the most secure elections in the country,” DeSantis said in a press release. “We need to do more to ensure our elections remain secure. We have ended ballot harvesting, stopped drop boxes and the mass mailing of ballots, and banned Zuckerbucks, and this bill will give us more resources to make sure bad actors are held accountable.”

In addition to creating the “Office of Election Crimes and Security,” the bill will also authorize additional investigators within the state’s Department of Law Enforcement, according to Politico. The state has set aside a budget of $2.6 million and 25 positions for the two agencies.

“Governor DeSantis has made elections integrity a top priority from the very beginning of his administration, taking steps to ensure we invested in our elections systems, strengthened our cyber defenses, modernized equipment, updated voter rolls, and improved transparency, and we’ve seen results,” said Florida Secretary of State, Laurel M. Lee. “As Florida’s Chief Elections Official, I share Governor DeSantis’ strong commitment to elections integrity. We want to ensure that every Floridian can have confidence that in Florida, we do elections right.”

30 Days in New York is Now All One Needs to Vote After Mayor Signs Non-Citizen Bill

New York City Mayor Eric Adams has officially changed voting forever in New York City. Adams enacted the measure Sunday allowing over 800,000 non-citizens to vote In municipal elections. The city council first passed the law last month.

The eligibility rules to be allowed to vote are useless, granting “voting rights to any adult who has been a lawful permanent resident in the city for more than 30 days” , reports National Review. A lawful resident for only 30 days gives them the same voting power as lawful citizens who have lived there for decades or their whole lives.

“If it survives a legal challenge” notes National Review, “New York City will be the first to institute such a law. Under the law, legal non-Americans would be able to vote for a number of elected positions including the mayor, comptroller, public advocate, borough president, and council member.”

Undocumented immigrants in theory would not be granted the right to vote under this measure. Additionally, the law does not allow individuals to vote for president or members of Congress in federal election races or state gubernatorial elections.

Some localities that already allow noncitizens to vote in their elections include eleven towns in Maryland and two in Vermont. “I believe that New Yorkers should have a say in their government, which is why I have and will continue to support this important legislation,” said Adams in a statement Saturday.

“While I initially had some concerns about one aspect of the bill, I had a productive dialogue with my colleagues in government that put those concerns at ease. I believe allowing the legislation to be enacted is by far the best choice, and I look forward to bringing millions more into the democratic process” he added.
