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.
