The League of Women Voters of Florida, under the leadership of Michele Levy of the Orange County League, has recently completed a study of ways to improve voter participation in elections. This study asks the question “Would open primaries increase voter turnout in elections?” However, the study also addresses a number of other methods that might affect voter turnout. The Tallahassee League has now been asked to conduct a meeting to see if our local League agrees with the conclusions reached by the League of Women Voters of Florida.
The Open Primary Consensus meeting will occur on Monday, March 13 2017 at 6:30 p.m. at the United Church in Tallahassee, 1834 Mahan Drive, Tallahassee, FL 32308. To prepare for your participation in the meeting, please read the condensed document entitled “Increasing Florida’s Voter Participation”. For additional information, please refer to the link below for the State Study Guide. Additional information on the State Study Guide below and on the State League website at www.thefloridavoter.org.
The results of our meeting will be forwarded to the State League so that they can determine if consensus can be reached statewide on this important issue.
