Print and share this new poster for gun violence prevention

The Broward League has been a leader in gun violence prevention with our program to make gun locks available free at dozens of community locations.

We can't give away enough gun locks, however, to reach everybody, so we also have to educate the public on the importance of safe storage. 

Here's a new poster that has a simple message that won't offend gun owners.

You can print this poster and post it in your community -- at schools, recreation centers, anywhere there's a bulletin board. 

To receive a PDF that you can print at home, contact and we'll email you a copy. 

Yes on 4Restrictions on reproductive freedom affect everyone, regardless of who they are or what they believe about abortion.

The citizen-led ballot initiative, designated on the 2024 ballot as Amendment 4 and titled the “Amendment to Limit Government Interference with Abortion,” seeks to create a constitutional amendment that would protect Floridians’ freedom to access abortion, stating: 

No law shall prohibit, penalize, delay, or restrict abortion before viability or when necessary to protect the patient’s health, as determined by the patient’s healthcare provider. This amendment does not change the Legislature’s constitutional authority to require notification to a parent or guardian before a minor has an abortion.

Dr. Gregory Mount, Assistant Chief Resilience Officer of Broward County's Resilient Environment Department, presented this engaging talk titled Broward Water 101 to the League on April 10.

Medicaid expansion is major legislative priority 

The LWV Broward Health Care Committee partners with Florida Voices for Health, the Florida Health Justice Project and other like-minded groups in a state-wide coalition committed to improve health care access by expanding Medicaid.

Florida is one of only 10 state that has NOT expanded Medicaid, leaving 800,000 without healthcare coverage.

Expanding Florida Medicaid is a legislative priority for the 2026 ballot.

The 2020 law regarding constitutional amendments by citizen initiatives has made it exceedingly expensive to run a petition drive; therefore, efforts are focused on raising funds to underwrite this effort. Please donate to Florida Decides Healthcare

Request your Vote By Mail now and tell everyone else to do it too

Vote-By-Mail request is going to be an on-going topic for the next year. Even if you have heard or read this already, please do so again! Please spread the word!

First, all vote-by-mail (VBM) requests made for the 2022 election are NO longer valid. Voters don’t seem to realize this yet, so it will be a shock when it is time for the presidential preference primary (March 19, 2024) when VBM ballot packets don’t show up in voters' mailboxes.

You and your friends, family, colleagues, exercise buddies, etc. should request your VBM ballots NOW! You can do this online at, our SOE's website.  

Helpful hints when you complete the VBM request online:
  • You will need your current Florida driver license or Florida identification number or the last four digits of your social security number.
  • You will need to provide an email address.
  • On the screen that asks for your address, note it is asking for the house or building number for your residence and NOT the street number. For example, if your address is 17034 SW 209th Court, input “17034” and not “209.”
  • If you will be living outside of Broward County temporarily for a specific election, you can request to have the ballot for just that election be sent to your temporary address. 
  • Don’t want to do it online? Just call the Broward SOE office at (954) 357-7055.
