Rick Scott: No Voter Sign-Up Extension

Florida Gov. Rick Scott said Thursday that he will not extend the state’s voter-registration deadline in light of Hurricane Matthew, after Hillary Clinton’s campaign hoped the state would do so. Scott said “people have had time to register,” in advance of the Oct. 11 deadline. “The voter-registration deadline in Florida is Oct. 11, and our hope would be that a little bit more time will be given for people who were expecting to be able to get registered before the election,” Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said earlier in the day. “We certainly expect that the governor and local officials will make that possible.”
