On Monday, the Florida Democratic Party launched its new website that will serve as a critical organizing tool for Democrats in all 67counties ahead of the 2020 elections. The new website is more user-friendly to help serve the average Floridian, offering new voter education tools, a real time map of Democratic grassroots organizing events throughout Florida, and the ability to register to vote and enroll in vote-by-mail. It also continues to be a meaningful resource to Democratic voters, organizers, and candidates. “We are so proud of this new website. This project was a long time in the making, and will be more critical to our efforts now as we campaign during the age of COVID-19,” said FDP Chair Terrie Rizzo. “Our website will be a one-stop-shop for any Floridian to become more educated on their candidates, to register to vote, to enroll in vote-by-mail, to get involved in party efforts, and to take advantage of the tools and resources we offer for candidates, campaign staffers, and volunteers. With the launch of this new website, we are renewing our focus on a faster, more secure, and more reliable experience!”
