Elections

Your Vote Matters

As Floridians, we know the importance of every vote. Our state has a rich history in elections decided on the narrowest of margins. The Florida Chamber engages in all aspects of Florida’s elections because, when it comes to securing Florida’s future, the stakes couldn’t be higher. Florida’s political landscape is continually changing. More voters are choosing NPA (no party affiliation) and the gap is closing between Republican and Democratic voters. And this year, voters will go to the polls and be asked to vote on a new leader of our nation, an open U.S. Senate seat, all 27 congressional representatives, all 40 state senate and all 120 house leaders, the retention of four Florida Supreme Court Justices, and four proposed constitutional amendments. But will voters be empowered to vote for candidates who support free enterprise, and who will stand for what’s right, even when it’s not easy?
