All candidates are asking the voting public for a job. The business community takes very seriously the opportunity to interview candidates and consider their qualifications for the office they seek. Our Board of Directors has conducted a rigorous review of each race, including written candidate surveys and in person interviews. In those races where the board can not reach consensus, they may choose not to endorse anyone. We explain our endorsements on our 2018 Endorsements page and publish this voter guide as a resource for voters, as they seek to decide for themselves who and what to vote for.
We have also compiled a detailed voter guide to the 2018 Ballot Amendments as well as a one page summary guide. In addition to the 3 amendments placed on the November General Election ballot by the Florida Legislature, there are 2 amendments brought up by the petition process and 8 placed on by the Florida Constitutional Review Committee*. These are all amendments to our state constitution and we hope all voters will take the time to research and understand these issues thoroughly before they vote.
