JMI Releases 2020 Florida Constitutional Amendment Guide

TALLAHASSEE–On Tuesday, November 3, 2020, Floridians will head to precincts all over the state to cast their votes. This year, in addition to electing the next President of the United States, Floridians must decide on six new proposed constitutional amendments.

As Floridians, it is our civic duty to not only vote, but also to educate ourselves on how these amendments could impact the Sunshine State. In an effort to help citizens better understand these new ballot initiatives, JMI has released a 2020 Amendment Guide, in both English and Spanish, analyzing the six ballot initiatives on the 2020 Florida ballot.

“If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that policies matter. This year’s slate of amendments will have far-reaching implications for Floridians, from how we conduct elections to what small business owners have to pay their employees. It is our hope that The James Madison Institute’s 2020 Amendment Guide will educate voters on the issues present and guide the decisions they make for our future.”
-Dr. Bob McClure, President and CEO, The James Madison Institute

“We all know that 2020 is a pivotal election for not only the country, but for the future of the Sunshine State’s governance and economy. It’s important to be informed, and know what the impact of a yes or no vote will be for each of the six amendments. Once the votes are tallied, it is extraordinarily difficult to undo something once it’s passed. We owe it to our children and their children to carefully weigh each one seriously. Our mission is to provide factual information to help voters navigate each of the amendments through objective analysis and honest appraisal.”
-Sal Nuzzo, Vice President of Policy, The James Madison Institute
