With 12 constitutional amendments on the ballot this fall in Florida, even the most savvy political observer may need some help brushing up on what the proposals are all about. The Florida Phoenix is doing a daily series of stories about each of the amendments and we’ll compile all those before the election.

Also, the League of Women Voters of Florida has just published its 2018 Nonpartisan Voter Guide to provide information before you vote.

In addition to detailed information about the various proposed Florida Constitutional Amendments, the guide includes Q&A’s with the candidates for governor, attorney general, chief financial officer and agriculture commissioner.

Election Day isn’t until Nov. 6, but Supervisors of Elections throughout the state have already begun sending out ballots to members of the military and other overseas voters. Vote-by-mail ballots will be sent to Florida voters who requested them starting next week.

League of Women Voters officials say that a Spanish language edition of the Voter Guide will also be distributed.

The League is also providing information available online at BeReadyToVote.org.
