(WEAR) — More Than A Vote, the group founded by LeBron James, has donated $100,000 to help register Florida voters with felony records.

More Than A Vote says it will donate the money to the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition to help pay outstanding court debts of former felons so they can register to vote in the November election.

Earlier this year, Florida passed a law that requires felons to first pay outstanding court debts and fees before they can register to vote. The Supreme Court recently upheld the voting law.
