Voting is Your SUPER Power!
It’s that time again FYS! Florida Youth SHINE showing how our voices are heard when we VOTE in the presidential election! We know this year we can’t all head to the polls together in our chapter but- we will still make our voices heard and show the world how powerful we are!
Here’s the low down on how you can participate in Florida Youth SHINE’s Youth Voting Initiative this year…. And three ways to be entered into a special raffle while empowering your peers!
Voting is your SUPER power. Send us a selfie of you voting with your "I Voted" sticker or with you holding up your envelope for vote by mail or post a selfie with a statement of why you're making your voice being heard & tag FYS on Instagram or Facebook (You do not need to hold up your ballot for this) for entry into a raffle! We will be selecting 10 winners for a raffle prize. All selfies may be sent by email by election day (November 4th) to or by text to 954-857-9597.
Chapters you can participate too! Coordinate a special event with your chapter. The chapter that has the most photos of why they are letting their voices being heard, will receive a $100 prize per chapter in special recognition! Send a quick email and photo about what your chapter is doing this month to or by text to 954-857-9597.
What can your chapter do to encourage voter participation?
-Hold a virtual meeting
-Have the supervisor of elections in your local area come speak with you virtually.
-Provide easily accessible voter info to your chapter members
Attend Florida Youth SHINE’s special Peer Connection Voters Education event on Thursday, October 15th at 5PM. We will be discussing the importance of voting and why you need to ensure your voices are heard. Raffles will be given out to attendees! RSVP for our event here:
