The Florida League is committed to helping returning citizens gain the right to vote. You can help with these goals:
- Informing returning citizens about their new rights; how to determine what fines, costs, restitution and fees might be outstanding; and getting registered to vote.
- Educating and activating attorneys to assist returning citizens through two League-created, Florida Bar-approved continuing legal education (CLE) courses. These courses teach attorneys how to assist returning citizens and petition courts for modifications. The courses are offered at no charge, and we ask the trained attorneys to provide pro bono (free) legal services to returning citizens to help them vote.
- Promoting statewide volunteer efforts to reach out to returning citizens and help them navigate the voter registration process.
