A returning citizen in Alabama was excited to vote in 2018. He wasn’t able to cast a ballot – officials refused to even let him register. Why? He owed the state $4. Our fight for proper Amendment 4 implementation will ensure situations like this don't happen in Florida. ... See MoreSee Less
Opponents argue that the initiative process provides an avenue for citizens to make changes when the Legislature is unresponsive to public wishes. They point to initiatives that have passed in recent years on issues such as setting aside money for land and water conservation and broadly legalizing m...
From what we have seen, this bill looks like a blatant attempt to abolish the citizen initiative. This is an attempt to silences our voices. The League believes very strongly that citizens should have an opportunity to direct democracy.
Floridians wanting to use the 2022 ballot to legalize recreational cannabis or expand Medicaid under the federal health care act will likely face significant financial and regulatory barriers. Those issues were D.O.A. in the 2020 Legislature. But supporters of recreational pot and Medicaid expansion...
If GOP lawmakers would simply cooperate with their Democratic colleagues to respond to citizens' concerns instead of just pandering to their rich buddies, most citizens' initiatives wouldn't be necessary.
GOP= GAME OF PREDATORS, PROFITEERS, POLLUTERS, PROLIFIC LIARS....GOVT. OF PUTIN.
I am so sick of Republicans stealing our democracy from U.S.
Florida needs to vote these turds out of office from the city streets to the Senate. Lets take back our economy and our ecology! We don't want to pay for major toll roads through our wildlife corridors so that rich assholes can have access to building housing developments in our ecologically sensitive watersheds for middle class assholes from elsewhere. We also want our beaches back that the GOP crooks stole from the people!
At a time when 59% of the public doesn't trust the election process, state elections officials have thrown a veil of secrecy over that work, refusing to disclose details about the weaknesses detected in their systems and whether they’ve been fixed. ... See MoreSee Less
I had questions after the 2016 elections, so I trained to be poll worker for the 2018 elections. I learned all the security measures taken in my county. Multiple counts of ballots used, not used, and how they were kept safe before and after voting. I felt it was a safe as humanly possible. If you have doubts, get off your butt and get involved. Just complaining without really knowing how it works will not help!
No longer the "Sunshine" state in many ways!
WE LIVE IN PASCO!
BEST Safety possible!
Broward County, which always seems to make the news for negative reasons, has been welcoming to public questions and overview. They have described the process and security features in detail. Just yesterday, at the convening of the Canvassing Board, the Board invited members of both parties into the room where DS850’s were prepared for the upcoming Presidential Preference Primary.
Hopefully, our county makes the news for the right reasons, this time around.
I don't like not seeing how your counts are being read before submitting into the box with the message your ballot has been accepted. I understood from news reports that several precincts had received ballots on wrong side paper and poll workers manually cut them to size.
GOP= GANG OF PROFITEERS, PREDATORS. PROLIFIC LIARS. GOVT. OF PUTIN.
Gov. Ron DeSantis was told during an FBI briefing that at least 2 Florida counties were hacked in the 2016 election, but he signed a nondisclosure agreement saying he would not divulge which counties were affected.
