Puerto Ricans Sue Florida For Spanish Ballot

Puerto Ricans are suing to have a number of counties in Florida print ballots and voting material in Spanish ahead of November's vote. 

A lawsuit filed earlier this month in federal court argues the new Floridians won't be able to exercise their right to vote without the Spanish-language ballots and voter guides.

The lawsuit looks to print Spanish material in 32 different Florida counties. 

The counties named in the lawsuit are along Florida's Space Coast, Treasure Coast, the Jacksonville area, the Sarasota area, the Panhandle and a swath of counties northwest of Orlando.

Tens of thousands of Puerto Ricans moved to Florida after the island was devastated by Hurricane Maria last year.
