What is Voter Service?

Voter Service is the very heart of the League, and all League members are part of the Voter Service team. Members register voters, assist with panel discussions, give presentations of proposed Florida Constitution Amendments and help at candidate forums, where they perform various duties such as moderating, timing and collecting question cards.

Our Space Coast League has been directly involved in many political forums that include candidates from local municipal races all the way to U.S. Congress. Over the past several years, the partnerships of the League and various other community organizations have brought candidate forums to locations where voters can listen and watch candiddates in action. These events are held to help educate voters about the candidates and their positions. Panel discussions and forums give citizens an opportunity to hear firsthand all sides of current issues, so that they are able to cast more informed votes at election time.

Voter Service also monitors election reforms and changes in election laws that affect voters. For example, our state League was instrumental in obtaining a fair redistricting amendment to the Florida Constitution after the 2010 U.S. Census. We have been following the state legislature throughout the redistricting process to ensure that the districts are apportioned properly to meet the standards set forth in the law.

Every other year after the November general election, Voter Service publishes the "CONTACT, Directory of Elected Officials" which also includes information on voter registration. Funding for the CONTACT is provided by generous donations from the business community and local governments. Copies are widely distributed at locations throughout Brevard County, including county government offices, city halls, chambers of commerce and local libraries. They are also available on request by e-mailing pr@lwv-spacecoast.org.
