League of Women Voters of Florida

None from Florida

The League got its official start in Florida in 1939, when women in Winter Haven, Winter Park and St. Petersburg initiated the Florida League of Women Voters, following some earlier efforts. Today, with 30 local Leagues statewide, members hold candidate forums, issue Voter Guides to help inform citizens on local races and ballot amendments, and sponsor public forums to encourage Florida's citizens and elected officials to broaden their understanding of key issues, while promoting engaged citizenship through an informed and active participation in government.
