1 min read

Tallahassee, Fla. — In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Florida Democratic Party held a voter registration day of action. The party had over 30 events across the state.

Hundreds of trained organizers and volunteers went out to register new voters and enroll voters in vote-by-mail. 

Terrie Rizzo, chair of the Florida Democratic Party, stated: “The Florida Democratic Party wanted to honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, and we did that today by helping Floridians register to take part in our democracy. Voter registration and voter protection have been fundamental to the civil rights movement and we will continue to work to ensure everyone can participate in our democracy. Today was an important day in our history and, with it being the one-year mark before the next presidential inauguration, an important day for our future.”

Rizzo took part in the day of action, volunteering at the Restoring The Village event and forum in Riviera Beach. 

Democrats registered voters in over 30 locations, including the Martin Luther King Jr. Day parades in Liberty City and in Pompano Beach.

Florida Democrats believe in effective and efficient government that prioritizes quality education, affordable health care, and an economy in which anyone who works hard can succeed.

Most importantly, we believe that we are stronger together. We believe the fundamental American promise — that you can go as far as your own hard work will take you — should shine brightest in Florida.

That is why we champion the middle class and cherish the principle that all Floridians should have the opportunity to work hard and succeed. That is why we will never stop fighting for better public schools, because education is the surest path to a better life for millions.

From standing for affordable health care and better schools to fighting for civil rights and access to the ballot box, Florida Democrats are leading every day to move our state forward.
