Our Priorities

From the infamous hanging chads of the 2000 election to long lines at polling places in 2018, Florida voters have faced countless barriers to the ballot. Time and again, elections officials make decisions that erect barriers to the same communities that know the harm of being disenfranchised: African Americans, low-income voters, students and people who don’t speak fluent English. In Florida, we are fighting to remove those obstacles and achieve these goals:

  • Students and communities of color have more opportunities to vote early, in person.
  • Voters who speak Spanish, Haitian Creole, and other languages receive ballots, voting materials, and support in their native language as required by law.
  • All voters, no matter who they are or where they live, can vote without waiting in long lines at their polling places.
