Your vote counts in the November midterm elections and your child is counting on your vote!!! The general elections in November for state level representatives (FL House of Representatives, FL Senate & Governor) are critical to public education since most of our funding and polices are decided by the FL Legislature.

2018 Constitutional Amendments:
The Florida Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) meets once every 20 years to amend the FL Constitution. This is one of those years! Amendments they propose will be on the November ballot and require 60% favorable votes to pass. These differ from laws passed by our Legislature as they affect our State Constitution and can only be amended every 20 years! For brief and detailed summaries of the amendments by the nonpartisan group League of Women Voters FL, please click here.
