About This State
Florida, Florida, Florida...where to begin. When it comes to elections, you're kind of like what happens to our hair when we're in your state: entangled and uncontrollable. But you have Disney World, so we'll call it even. Let's put some product in the hair we call democracy and make sure we get things under control this year. May the next headline be "Florida Man brings friends and family to polls." Here's what you need to know.Register To Vote
Why Is This State Special
Florida sits on the knife’s edge of every election. In 2012, Obama carried the state by a fraction of a percentage point and Trump only won it by slightly more than one percentage point in 2016. In 2018, Florida’s gubernatorial and Senate races were decided by less than half a point. Florida is likely to be very close again, but registering new voters may be what makes the difference. This includes registering and providing correct information to more than 1 million formerly incarcerated people who recently regained the right to vote. Winning Florida will be tough, but it’s not impossible -- and with its 29 electoral votes, winning it would mean that Democrats would only need to flip one of our other five priority states to take back the White House on November 3.ROAD TO WIN
No excuse is needed to vote by mail in Florida.
