Please make sure to vote on August 26th!

08/21/2014 3:24 PM | Heather Brown (Administrator)
On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was passed, granting women the right to vote. In 1971 this day was designated as Women’s Equality Day. This year in Florida, primary elections fall on that same day. For 94 years, women have voted and helped to change this country for the better. We have had women run for office and get elected into State and National Legislative positions. They have served as members of the Cabinet working directly for the President of the United States, past and present. As we remember that women picketed and went to jail, in their fight for us to have this right, please make sure to proudly cast your ballot on Tues Aug 26th.
