PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Florida’s new election law is signed, and the target of several lawsuits.

The way Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis staged the signing brought a new round of protest and controversy.

Florida’s 67 election supervisors opposed the election law changes from the get-go, calling them unnecessary and requiring them to re-do vote-by-mail requests.

Broward County Supervisor of Elections Joe Scott joined TWISF to discuss what did make it in, the politics and practical effects of what’s to come.

His discussion with TWISF hosts Glenna Milberg and Michael Putney can be seen at the top of this page.
