Fight Back Against Voter Suppression!

Florida is one of a number of states that have implemented some major changes to its voting laws. The changes have an especially big impact on Latinos, Black, young voters, as well as women. Supporters of the changes--which are nothing more than thinly veiled voter suppression laws--dictate how groups register to vote, who is eligible, and when folks can vote.

We don't agree with these changes, and we're working hard to reverse them. Until then, however, all Floridians need to understand what is necessary to register to vote for the upcoming general election. We teamed up with our friends at Cuéntame to help you understand those changes and to arm you with what you need to know.

Also, be sure to register to vote here.
