League releases guide to amendments on ballot

-A A +A

The League of Women Voters of Florida is a non-partisan expert resource available to help explain the Amendments to voters.
With six complex ballot amendments this year, along with some highly contested candidate races with national implications, it is imperative that Floridians understand their votes will have a major impact on our state's future.
The League has released its Pro/Con Guide on the Amendments to help inform and educate voters. Included in the Guide is the number of the Amendment, the exact language on the ballot, the Amendment sponsor(s), background information on the issue, and the list of pro's and con's of voting for or against it.
 Deirdre Macnab, President of the League of Women Voters of Florida, says, "We provide this guide, as we do every election, to help with voter education of these complicated, yet important issues. It is part of our campaign  'Making Democracy Easy' and helping citizens cast an informed vote."
This guide reflects the most recent updates to the ballot after the Florida Supreme Court struck down Amendments 3, 7 and 9.
The guide is available at the League's website at http://www.thefloridavoter.org/
