Mission: Empowering voters. Defending democracy.
Vision: We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge and the confidence to participate.
Value: We believe in the power of women to create a more perfect democracy.
Natural Resources was selected by the State League of Women Voters as one of its 4 legislative priorities for the 2023 session. It is not for the faint of heart. There is a constant tug of war between preserving our incredibly beautiful and unique environment and the needs of a rapidly increasing population and the demands of an ever expanding and dynamic economy. As you would expect, the history of that struggle is deep and complicated, and the resulting laws and rules governing that landscape are convoluted and compromised. Add to that mix the very real consequences of climate change.
To help us sort it out we have invited Aliki Moncrief, the Executive Director of Florida Conservation Voters, to give us historical background and the current legislative mood as we head into the upcoming session.

Date: Monday, February 20, 2023
Time: 12:00 p.m.
Location: Trinity United Methodist Church, 120 Park Avenue, Tallahassee.
Speaker: Aliki Moncrief, Executive Director, Florida Conservation Voters

Voter Services Activities 2022
The LWV Tallahassee will be busy this year due to elections. The Primary Election is August 23, 2022. Early Voting in Leon County is from August 13 through August 21. The General Election is November 8, 2022. Early Voting in Leon County is from October 24 through November 6. For those in other counties, check with your Supervisor of Elections for their Early Voting dates.
We will be staffing voter registration and education tables at the Tallahassee Downtown Market most Saturdays, as well as the Southside Farmer’s Market, which usually is open two Thursday afternoons per month. Stop by to register to vote or update your current registration and learn about new laws that affect all Florida voters. We strongly encourage voters to go to Early Voting whenever possible. However, we also encourage you to request a Vote-by-Mail ballot from your county’s Supervisor of Elections as a back-up in case something happens, such as an illness, that prevents you from voting in person.
The LWV Tallahassee is available to provide voter registration and education for nonpartisan organizations, such as community groups, sororities/fraternities, other university-affiliated organizations, religious organizations, senior groups, city or county events, etc.
Your health and that of our community is of the utmost importance to us. Thus, the League will take Covid precautions that are appropriate to the setting and local circumstances.
