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
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.
Ending disenfranchisement and discrimination against people with convictions is a priority for the Florida League following the passage of 2018’s Amendment 4.
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.
VOTING RIGHTS ARE UNDER ATTACK IN FLORIDA
In a backlash to historic voter turnout in the 2020 general election, and grounded in a rash of baseless allegations of voter fraud and election irregularities, Florida’s legislature has introduced bills that will drastically change our current election process. Proposed legislation, like SB 90 & HB7041, would ban or modify ballot drop boxes and dramatically change Florida’s vote-by-mail process if passed.
These proposed changes to current law will undoubtedly stifle voter participation and confuse citizens. Not only harmful to voters, the proposals will increase cost and workloads on Florida’s 67 Supervisor of Elections and their staff. The League urges our members and citizens to take action by contacting your state legislators and asking they oppose these changes.
