TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner is encouraging Floridians to sign up to vote. Tuesday he announced a new TV campaign that aims to register more voters. And to help with the efforts, the Florida Department of State is teaming up with the League of Women Voters on this campaign.
The campaign lets people know they can vote early with absentee ballots or at polling places between October 27 and November 3.
Jessica Lowe-Minor with the League of Women Voters of Florida said, “this is a critical election season and the League of Women Voters encourages all eligible citizens to make their voice heard by getting their vote counted. Remember democracy is not a spectator sport. Be ready to vote this f all.”
Voters are also asked to take a look at a sample ballot before voting because this year’s ballot is very long with 11 proposed constitutional amendments and a lot of candidates.
The state spent $30,000 to produce the public service announcements for this campaign.
The effort is also supported by the Florida Cable Telecommunications Association.
