The proxy process

If you cannot attend a meeting, you can find a proxy. Your proxy MUST be a registered Democrat and it CANNOT be a current member of the Democratic Executive Committee (DEC). For Elected DEC members (most of you), your proxy must also reside in the DEC District that you represent.

The proxy form provided by the FDP can be found here (other forms are also accepted, as long as they have the required fields). You must complete this form and sign it, and either have it notarized or witnessed by two registered Democrats. While we highly encourage you to complete and submit your proxy form the day before the meeting is scheduled, we accept proxies until the meeting is called to order. Your proxy should be emailed to [email protected] and [email protected].

  • Florida now allows for documents to be notarized electronically by e-notaries.
  • Similarly, the FDP allows for proxies to be witnessed electronically too. You can use DocuSign or a similar web software to complete your proxy form.

If you are not familiar with the DEC District that you represent, you can find the list of precincts in your district here. You can also reference the 2020 DEC District map here for your convenience. 

The language in our bylaws regarding proxies can be found by clicking "Read More". If you have any questions, please reach out to Laura Wagner at [email protected].

Florida Republicans plan to do away with Vote-By-Mail

Democrats Raise the Alarm: Proposal to End Vote-By-Mail Would Turn Back the Clock on Democracy in Florida

Two bills just proposed to begin the Florida legislative session, SB 1752, and its even more odious house companion, HB 1669, if enacted, will rob Floridians of their access to Vote-By-Mail. Millions of Floridians voted by mail in recent elections – more than two and a quarter million of them in the 2022 midterms, and nearly five million of them in the last Presidential election. Republicans want to turn back the clock 25 years, suppressing the votes of working people, elderly voters, communities of color, college students and more.

Do you know about some of the new Florida laws as of July 2023?

The 2023 Florida legislative session was among the most extremist on record. 

A number of the laws passed are already tied up in the courts with lawsuits challenging their constitutionality, including the 6-week abortion ban, the ban on gender-affirming care for minors, new restrictions on drag performances, and parts of the HB 7050 suppression bill. 

But many widely unpopular and repressive new laws went into effect on July 1.
