Close to one million Floridians have lost their right to vote because of a past felony conviction. And while thousands of Floridians have had their voting rights restored, many don’t even know it. That’s because the State of Florida has not notified them of their new status. Our campaign got the word out in a very compelling way.
We worked with the Florida American Civil Liberties Union, to create a campaign to convince Florida State Legislators to abandon optical scanning voting technology and return our state to the more accountable paper-trail machines. Our campaign, called Count All Votes, provided a 50-second online commercial and an automated form (CountAllVotes.com) to let visitors tell Governor Crist and the state legislators that they supported the voting machines bill.
