Today, Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), issued the following statement on the U.S. District Court's ruling blocking Florida's new early-voting law from taking effect in the five counties covered by Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965:

"While I am encouraged by the court's ruling to block Republicans' attempts at curtailing early voting in five counties covered by Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, I am disheartened that the rest of Florida's voters have to live under the new law. We now have two separate sets of rules for voters. It's unconscionable and it will be confusing. Inevitably, it will lead to college students, minorities, seniors and others being disenfranchised.
