The League of Women Voters of Florida

Empowering Voters. Defending Democracy.

The League of Women Voters of Florida (LWVFL) is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government, working to increase understanding of major policy issues, and advocating for legislative changes and policies for the public good.

Current focus points

Legislative Priorities

LWVFL works to advocate for better Florida for all by drafting, supporting and opposing state legislation. Our grassroots membership determines specific legislative goals within various policy issues each year.

REGISTERING
RETURNING CITIZENS

Ending disenfranchisement and discrimination against people with convictions is a priority for the Florida League following the passage of 2018’s Amendment 4.

VOTER SERVICES

Much of LWVFL’s history stems from our work to register, empower and educate voters. We work endlessly to register new voters, host candidate forums and educate the public on various issues.

REDISTRICTING

The League believes congressional districts and government legislative bodies should be apportioned substantially on population. We promote transparent and accountable redistricting processes to end hyper-partisan practices that don’t benefit constituents. We oppose partisan and racial gerrymandering that strips rights away from voters

This morning Governor DeSantis made a sudden announcement to call for a special legislative session to impose restrictions regarding federal COVID-19 vaccine mandates.

The League believes attacking businesses and local governments doing everything they can to keep citizens safe is plain wrong. This special session could cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars, put our state’s economic recovery at risk and endanger the lives of millions of Floridians.

Be nice if he held a special session to deal with escalating rental rates and home insurance premiums! He keeps saying how great our economy is so this mandate isn’t impacting. Plus he’s perfectly fine with FL tremendous death rate.

Question(s) every candidate for office between now and 2022 should be asked publicly & documented: 1. In the spirit of maintaining our Democracy, do you believe that independent election experts who were hired for that State job should run our elections, or should they be subordinate to partisan State politicians’ wishes, who may overturn the voting results? 2. Do you believe Joe Biden or Donald Trump won the 2020 election? 3. Should the United States Department of Justice be directed by the President declare any election “corrupt” or to secretly investigate the President’s political opponents without any severe criminal consequences for the President? 4. If Donald Trump or Joe Biden are found guilty of any felonies in a court of law will you stand by our rule of law and support those rulings? If elected, will you promise to uphold these responses you have stated to us now, no matter what your responses are? And if you later renege on your answers will you promise to immediately resign for lying to us, your employers, during this job “interview”?”

Lots of grandstanding to retain the minority voters of Florida. I think the majority of educated voters in Florida see DeSantis for what he is…a mini trump. Hungry for power and greedy for accumulating all the money he can make. He cares nothing for average,middle class citizens pf Florida.
