LWVFL Local Leaders Calls 2021 - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Are there any special provisions for voters who live in assisted living facilities who wish to vote by mail and want someone other than a family member to take their vote to the SOE office?
Thank you for joining us, everyone. We will take questions after Justice Quince speaks. Please place them in the chat box and I will pose them to her after her presentation.
They are only targeting VBM. If they were truly sincere about wanting to improve election security, why would they not require every voter to register anew for every election?
They want to prevent people from voting. Certain people.
Andrea, absolutely. It's obvious.
Does the federal For the People Act in the US Senate address many of the items in these Florida bills?
Last minute and we will probably be limited to 30 second testimony - grrrrr!
This helpful link from Brennan Center shows everything the for the people act would solve:
What is the number of the House Bill?
With Biden's nomination of new federal Postal bd members, maybe the USPS will be more reliable next time.
Do we still have no-excuse vote by mail?
What kind of opposition is there to these bills?
PCB PIE 21-05

Not to be too negative, but if some of these voter suppression bills pass into law, what are the chances they would be declared unconstitutional?
When do we march?
Does or will the League have a strategic plan of action to address the concerns that is being discussed?
Yes, I am ready for a march! Along with a good solid education campaign - of course we need to move fast!
LWV miami Dade has begun having talks to mobilize a coalition of voting orgs to get something going to re-sign people for vbm should any of these pass
With 4 new judges, slim!
Where is the FIrst Amendment Fdn on access to testify? Boy do we miss Barbara Petersen
Should we be organizing our members to speak out ASAP about the new House bill?
I heard what is in SB 90 what is in the HB PCB PIE 21-05??
What are the points we should be stressing?
Do you have recommended messaging/talking points we should be using for education?
These bills are passing committee by a large margin mostly on a party line. Education will be key now and if these bills pass.
Wound you consider a public education event that ALL locals could promote for public involvement? With LWVFL speakers?
That's a good idea.
I second Sandy Frank's request.
What are the salient points?
Do we have the ability to run commercials on tv networks and social media?
when contacting legislators on this issue is it better to just identify ourselves as citizens or league members?
What should local leagues be doing for lobby days? Is state organizing all meetings?
Our Action Alerts will be sent to all members and we will post them on social media.
What time is the closing?

We can get a lot of written content out to partners to share. Is there copy we can use?
Ditto Amy for social media
Were can I read the details of PCB PIE 21-05?
Awesome. Thank you!!!

Another scary Bill is SB48 that greatly expands the vouchers and a threat to public education.
who is emailing us on workshops/caucuses for convention if we want to hold one?
This really is the besets organization ever! Where would we be without it? Thanks so much to the leaders both locally and at the state!
