Florida Decides: A Conversation with Secretary of State Laurel M. Lee

Florida is the nation’s largest swing state where elections are often decided by razor thin margins. Already, local elections officials have begun sending vote-by-mail ballots to voters who have requested those, and with early voting sites opening mid-October, Florida voters are preparing to have their voices heard as the 2020 Presidential Election gets underway. Florida Secretary of State and Chief Elections Officer Laurel M. Lee joins the program to discuss the importance of civic engagement and why being a savvy consumer of information matters more now than ever. Secretary Lee will also talk about the unprecedented planning and preparation that has gone into protecting voters and their votes and the factors that make this election year unique.


This event is funded by the Florida Humanities Florida Talks: At Home! program and funded by the “Why it Matters: Civic and Electoral Participation” initiative, administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils and funded by Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
