This election is more than important most, and much is at stake. Voters in Miami-Dade will cast ballots to decide their representatives in local, state, and national elections, and important issues for the Florida Constitution and Miami-Dade Charter. Our great American democracy depends on voters making informed decisions as ballots are cast.
If you are a registered voter, what do you need to vote?
The League of Women Voters is your one-stop shop. By visiting www.lwvmiamidade.org, you can learn what identification you need to bring, the locations and hours for early voting, and request a Vote by Mail ballot. You can review our Voters’ Guide 2016 for the information you need to make informed voting decisions. The League of Women Voters is non-partisan; we do not endorse a candidate or party. But, we do provide solid information to help you make decisions on issues that matter to you.
For example, the League of Women Voters of Florida and Miami-Dade have taken a strong position against the utility sponsored Amendment 1. Across the state, this amendment is understood to trick voters. It restricts your freedom by shutting down your choices. We urge you to vote no on Amendment 1.
There are many opportunities available for voting, so no excuses. Early voting begins Monday, Oct. 24, and continues through Sunday, Nov. 6, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 30 different locations countywide. You can also request a Vote by Mail ballot up to Nov. 2.
Our democracy depends on making informed decisions while voting. Voting is power, your power, and by voting you make our democracy work. We urge you to be election ready, read our Voters’ Guide, learn the candidates and the issues, have your identification, and vote by mail, or go to the polls early or on Election Day, Nov. 8. Take your family, your friends, your neighbors, your co-workers, and vote.
