2016 Voter Service Committee

Voter Service Chair: Raechel Garafalo

Voter Service is a longstanding educational League committee with a tremendous scope of activity and responsibility for the integrity of its content and its nonpartisan position. The committee is at the core of the League Mission to engage people in democracy and to do so in a nonpartisan way.

Our nonpartisan position is a critical aspect of Voter Service. The committee conducts candidate forums, registers voters, publishes an online voter guide, and educates the citizenry about proposed amendments and the voting process.

The 2016 Election Cycle is a critical time as we approach the appointments for the Florida State Constitutional Review Commission (CRC) and entertain the opportunity to place amendments on the ballot, making this election cycle even more important.

The committee is also engaged as a participant in the National Study of Open Primaries. If the LWVUS adopts a position on Open Primaries, it may form the basis for education and advocacy in the future through the development of a Program or working group, apart from the educational work of Voter Service.
