Here are the questions we’ve already received about the Nov. 6 election. Got your own? Scroll down to the submission form to send it in. (It will appear in this form below, but you can choose to make it anonymous.)
We made it through the Aug. 28 election, but there’s still one more to go, and this one is the big one: the midterm election. There are plenty of intense races to keep an eye out for, plus a whole slew of constitutional amendments that could bring some big changes to the Sunshine State.
The stakes are higher now, which means it’s even more important to cut through the noise and the mudslinging and get the real download on the candidates. That’s where we come in.
As we approach the Nov. 6 election, we want to make sure we’re helping you, our readers, separate fact from fiction and understand your choices.
So as we prep our Nov. 6 voter guide, we want to know: what questions do you have about the Nov. 6 election and the candidates?
It could be anything from understanding what, if anything, a governor can do on immigration policy to what’s actually happening with the FBI investigation clouding Andrew Gillum’s campaign.
There’s no such thing as a dumb question. We want to make sure you have as much info as you need before this crucial election.
Here are some examples of potential questions:
- Why has socialism become a focal point of the governor’s race?
- Do I have to be registered with a political party to vote in this election?
- Why are issues that seem totally unrelated wrapped together in a single constitutional amendment?
- What impact can a lieutenant governor have?
Here’s some of what you may find on your ballot, depending on where you live in Miami-Dade:
- State senator
- U.S. Congressional representatives
- Commissioner of Agriculture
- Attorney General
- Referenda on the InterMiami soccer stadium and strong mayor
- Constitutional amendments, such as Amendment 4, which would restore felons’ right to vote after they’ve served their time
You can find a full sample ballot here.
We’ll share those questions back out next week and keep you posted on which ones make it into the voter guide. Stay tuned for the full guide in mid-October, as early voting begins.
And BTW, if you’re not registered to vote, or want to update your information, the deadline is Oct. 9. You can find the details on how to register here.
