Judge orders Florida to protect Spanish-speakers' voting rights prior to 2020 primaries

Advocates for Spanish-speaking voters in Florida are celebrating a significant win Friday after District Judge Mark Walker issued an order requiring 32 of the state's 67 counties to provide election materials and assistance to Spanish-speaking voters before the 2020 presidential primary.

Walker's decision comes after several civic engagement groups and individuals sued the state secretary of state and elections supervisors last year for what they say was a violation of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 for not making available bilingual voting materials and assistance to the state's growing number of Spanish speakers. They pointed in particular to Puerto Rican voters who have moved to the state after Hurricane Maria.
