League of Women Voters of Florida and Others Sue To Stop Florida’s Voter Suppression Bill
SB 90’s provisions make it harder for Floridians to cast their ballot, with a disproportionate impact on elderly voters, voters with disabilities, students and communities of color.
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.
