Florida: The Florida State Supreme Court has schedule arguments on March 7 on a proposed constitutional amendment that would automatically restore voting rights for most felons. A group known as Floridians for a Fair Democracy has submitted 71,207 petition signatures to the state, enough to trigger Supreme Court review of the proposed ballot wording. If the Supreme Court signs off, the group then would need to collect hundreds of thousands of additional signatures to put the measure on the ballot.

Missouri: The St. Louis city attorney has “uncovered important evidence” in a voter fraud investigation into the August primary and has turned all the evidence over to the U.S. attorney’s office.
