This will be a critical election year for Floridians, with decisions which will impact our competitiveness in education, health care, coastal drilling, protection of our water resources, growth management, and the list goes on. Voters will face an historic number of state offices up for election, with no incumbents running. In addition, voters have to navigate as many as 10 complex ballot amendments, with their choices having a major impact on everything from class size to property taxes.
For the Aug. 24 Florida primary, the League of Women Voters of Florida encourages voters to vote the easy way. There are three ways to cast your ballot:
- Vote by Mail
- Vote early at designated sites in your county
- Vote on Election Day
For more details on finding your precinct, how to order a mail-in ballot, locating your early voting site, or finding polling hours for Election Day, voters may log on to www.VoteAnywhere.org, or for Spanish to www.VamosaVotar.org.
"In this pivotal election year for Florida's future, we call on every voter to exercise their citizenship and VOTE in the August primary," states Deirdre Macnab, president of the League of Women Voters of Florida. "Vote on your schedule. It's democracy made easy!"
