Be an Informed Voter on Nov. 8


advocate-imageElection Day is only days away, and the Florida Farm Bureau Federation is hopeful that all of our members, as well as agricultural producers across the state, make their voices heard at the polls on Tuesday, Nov. 8. As reported in the October edition of this newsletter, there are plenty of important races on the ballot that extend far beyond the Presidential or U.S. Senate race at the top of the ballot.

While electing a president is important for our country, Florida Farm Bureau, our members and citizens across this state will be most affected by local and state office elections. Local and state elected officials make extremely difficult and important decisions that affect taxes, regulations and funding for environmental projects, schools, transportation and more. So whether you’re fired up about the choices for president or not, please consider all of the remaining races that will have more of a direct impact on your daily lives and businesses.

Ahead of the general election, Florida Farm Bureau, along with our partners at the Florida Chamber of Commerce, has released our 2016 Election Guide packed with important and helpful information on all of the national and statewide races. Included in the guide is information on the four constitutional amendments that will appear on the November ballot.

As the Voice of Agriculture, Florida Farm Bureau wants to ensure our members are informed voters so that agricultural producers can make an impact with their votes on Election Day. Please read through our 2016 Election Guide or visit our website,, before heading to the polls on Nov. 8.
