We’re Protecting Your Vote
Floridians deserve a democracy that values and holds sacred the freedom to vote. At Common Cause Florida, we are committed to defending voting rights, making ballot box accessible for all eligible voters, and safeguarding our voting systems to guarantee accurate and fair elections.
Common Cause Florida is part of a nonpartisan Election Protection Coalition that seeks to ensure that every eligible voter who wants to vote can and that every vote is counted accurately. Our Election Protection program is not affiliated with any party, candidate or issue campaign.
Voters who experience any difficulties while voting are encouraged to use the following hotlines to get live advice from the Election Protection Coalition attorneys. These hotlines will be connected to response teams on the ground to address problems as they occur.
866-OUR-VOTE (led by the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law),
888-Ve-Y-Vota (led by the NALEO Educational Fund), and
888-API-VOTE (led by APIAVote & Asian Americans Advancing Justice-AAJC)
Digital tools including:
Trained poll monitors are an integral part of the project out in the field. Poll monitors are volunteers on Election Day who assist voters in obtaining information about voting. After attending a training session, they will have answers to voters’ frequently asked questions and have websites and toll-free numbers on hand to direct voters for additional assistance.
