Miami-Dade Democrats Register Hundreds of Voters in Run-Up to the Presidential Primary
February 20, 2020 Newsletter
With less than one month to go until Florida votes in our Democratic Presidential Preference Primary, the Miami-Dade Democrats continued our extensive Voter Registration efforts this past weekend. Florida has closed primaries, and so we encouraged as many voters as possible to register with the Florida Democratic Party by February 18 so they can have a voice in Florida’s March 17 Presidential Preference Primary. Our trained Voter Registration volunteers helped hundreds of people register to vote or switch their party affiliation to the Democratic Party.

Over 60,000 people used an on-campus early voting location in 2018, and ultimately the election was decided by under 30,000 votes. However, shortly after the midterms, Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis signed legislation making it difficult for universities and colleges to host early voting sites, thus further suppressing the youth vote.
