Florida Democrats have filed an injunction calling for a registration extension of at least a week as Hurricane Michael hits Florida as one of the strongest U.S. hurricanes ever.

The big picture: Florida Governor Rick Scott, who is running against Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson for a Senate seat, has extended the voter registration deadline for areas impacted by Hurricane Michael to one day after offices are able to re-open. Democrats want the deadline, which was originally October 9, extended to October 16, per USA Today.
