Decisions, decisions South Florida, did you vote?

Whether you are looking to make South Florida your permanent home, or are planning a seasonal residency, the recent fervor surrounding the Primary Elections for the Presidential Candidates should be of interest to you.

The choices this year have been complex; on March 15th Florida residents made their voices heard by casting their ballots for the Republican and Democratic Candidates for the Presidential race this fall. However, Florida is a “closed primary” state. That means that only voters registered with a political party may vote in that party’s Primary Election.

In a recent article posted on USA Today® penned by Ledyard King, “The presidential primaries were supposed to be settled by now. By mid-March, it was assumed, Jeb Bush would be well on his way to clinching the Republican nomination, and Hillary Clinton would have rolled over independent Sen. Bernie Sanders on her way to the Democratic general-election ballot. Florida voters weren’t expected to have much of a say.”

This obviously has not been the case this year. King continues to note, “Now, Florida matters. Here are five things to know about the state’s primary on Tuesday:

  1. State known for picking Presidents is about to play big role in picking each party’s nominee.
  2. Clinton enjoys a few key advantages, including strong backing from women.
  3. Hispanics have a chance to support one of their own on the Republican side — but aren’t expected to.
  4. Most votes in Florida will be cast before Tuesday.
  5. Tuesday’s primary could have dire consequences for Rubio’s political career.”

Whether you agree with this author’s comments or not, we shall know soon, and Florida will indeed play an important role in nominating this year’s Presidential Candidates.

Whether or not you did the research prior to the Primary Elections, you still have time to educate yourself before November. Most local media outlets provide information about the parties and issues regarding each choice. Additionally, Rock The Vote® has a great website with information, you can find out more by clicking here.

Moreover, Florida residents may opt to research the candidates and issues via the data and statistics available through the Florida Division of Elections. Whichever method one chooses to educate oneself about the people and issues effecting Florida politics, it is imperative to all that we exercise our right to vote. Each of the three counties, St. Lucie, Martin, and Palm Beach have all made voting much easier! Whether you vote my mail, vote early, or show up on Tuesday, November 8, 2016 and cast your ballot…vote!!
