Florida extended registration to vote until October 18 due to Hurricane Matthew.

The Democratic Party argued that registration should be postponed due to the impact of Hurricane Matthew, but Judge Mark Walker imposed a preliminary injunction on this decision.

Mark Elias, a Florida Democratic and Clinton campaign lawyer, argued in court documents that voters in Florida faced “frightening and truly life-threatening obstacles” to register to vote.

It is worth noting that last week, Florida Republican Governor Rick Scott told reporters that he did not intend to make changes and said that "people managed to register."

“Now we can make up for lost time and help register people affected by the storm,” said Pamela Goodman, president of the Florida League of Women Voters. “Our goal is to help everyone in Florida register their voices and be heard, and we are grateful that the storm did not drown out their voices.”

“Federal law requires the state to give voters enough time to register,” said Myrna Perez, deputy director of the Brennan Center's Democracy Program. “With this permission, more and more citizens will be able to exercise their most basic right in our democracy.”

In early October, the US was hit by Hurricane Matthew, who became the most dangerous storm in the Atlantic Ocean since 2007. The media give different estimates of the number of hurricane victims in the United States. According to Reuters, perished minimum 23 person.

Haiti suffered the most from the storm, where the number of victims, according to Reuters, exceeded one thousand people.
