Allowing qualified voters to vote seems like a simple premise.
Unfortunately, that is not how we conduct elections in Florida. For those who wish to vote for their next state House or Senate member or for governor or Cabinet members, as stunning as it sounds, the truth is that most voters are excluded from voting in the taxpayer-funded elections that most often determine the winner.
All Voters Vote is a proposed constitutional amendment that holds to the simple premise that every qualified registered voter in Florida should be allowed to cast a ballot in all public elections. For too long, too many voters — and to be clear, we are talking about those who are already registered to vote — have been legally prohibited from voting for the person who will represent them in Tallahassee.
How can this be?
