Miami Women Speak Out

As women leaders in Miami, we are shocked at the present discourse by some of our elected officials, the blatant mockery and disrespect of women, and in particular of Dr. Ford.  It is at these moments that all women in our community must act together.  We must raise our voices and be LOUD in the most important and effective way with our vote at the ballot box this November 6th.

Please check your voting status to be sure you are an active voter to participate in this election.  Do not assume that you are - take the minute to verify that you are registered.

You can Register to Vote or Update Your Information   and check that all your voting details are correct by Tuesday, October 9.  Do not delay!

Make a voting plan - the ballot is very long with 12 State Constitution amendments, 5 County Charter amendments, School Board Referendum, candidates and more.

Be an informed voter. Learn about the candidates and the amendments at

Make your selections and print your personalized ballot.

Decide how you will vote:  

Vote By Mail  (and watch the video)   Early Voting (Times & Locations)  or Election Day (where do I vote?)

Share this message with your sisters, daughters, mother, grandmothers, and friends.

Take 5 women with you to vote!

Our vote is our voice and that is our power!
