In a state of 20 million people, an almost a quarter of eligible Floridians aren't registered to vote.  That’s an estimated 4.6 million people not voting, roughly equal to the entire population of Louisiana.

The Constitution Revision Commission made a stop last night in Tampa for their ninth public hearing in the state. The commission meets every 20 years, giving Floridians an opportunity to amend the Florida Constitution.

Florida's Secretary of State was originally elected directly by voters, but in 1998, the position was moved out of the Cabinet and became a job appointed by the governor. Now a measure in Tallahassee would once again make the Secretary of State an elected office.

Organizers behind Vision 2020 have set for themselves a bold goal: 100 percent turnout of eligible women voters in the November 2020 national election.

Launched after a meeting last month at Drexel University that sought "to bring about political parity for women," a group of women from Southwest Florida helped shape the project, and will bring a Vision 2020 National Congress to Florida next year. The effort is making a push in Florida through local organizations including the League of Women Voters and the Southwest Florida Community Foundation.
