GOTV: A Tale of two Communities!

 

Date/Time August 31, 2022, 6:30 – 7:30PM

Nationwide voting rights champions are leading the charge to end existing restrictions to the ballot box and stop the political push nationwide to legislate more.

LWV Florida and LWV Tallahassee are at the forefront in the State of Florida challenging restrictions in the legislature through our lobbying efforts and in court by filing lawsuits challenging the State of Florida’s legislative actions. Meanwhile our local chapter has devised creative “get out the vote” (GOTV) solutions on the ground; and we have selected our locations by viewing the initiative through a DEI Lens.

 

 

Our August Hot Topic is the story of two diverse communities in Tallahassee where the League is helping to defy the traditional mid-term blahs and defy efforts to restrict voting access through inane new laws. We are doing what we do best: educate, advocate, support local community efforts to increase awareness and engagement in local government and the election process.

Our two communities are Leon County Voting Precinct 1313 in South Tallahassee, and the Florida State University Campus.

We have “partnered” with community activists, and church leaders, and with FSU Student PIRG (Public Interest Research Group).

Our speakers will share challenges, strategies, expectations, insights, and what success looks like.

Curious what “through a DEI Lens means?”  We will talk about that too.  It is an important nationwide League initiative.

Register in advance for this meeting:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

We hope you will join us and learn more about our creative get out the vote efforts!

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.
