Florida Supervisors of Elections Partners with the Florida Joint Center for Citizenship to Teach Students about Ballots

Florida Supervisors of Elections (FSE) partnered with the Florida Joint Center for Citizenship (FJCC) Lou Frey Institute at the University of Central Florida to produce an instructional video on Florida’s Uniformed Ballot Structure. The 2021 Florida Legislature passed CS/CS/SB 1108 - Education, requiring the character development curriculum for public school students in the 11th and 12th grades to include instructions on voting using the uniform primary and general election ballot. 

The 10-minute video is a curricular resource that can be used by educators to instruct on Florida’s primary and general elections and the uniformity in ballot design and includes ballot samples from the Orange County Supervisor of Elections office. The resource will be made available to all Florida public high schools and can be accessed here: Florida’s Uniformed Ballot Structure video.

Florida Supervisors of Elections and the Florida Joint Center for Citizenship are committed to promoting the development of enlightened, responsible, and actively engaged citizens. “Our association is pleased to offer this resource, as the official trusted sources of election information, to educate Florida’s future voters,” states Supervisor Wilcox.

The Florida Supervisors of Elections (FSE) is a professional membership organization, consisting of Florida’s Election Supervisors, whose mission is to assist its members in conducting fair, honest and accurate elections by providing continuing education and certification programs that encourage the highest level of professionalism; to assist Florida citizens to become better informed about voting and be prepared to participate in the electoral process; and to create a forum where the Supervisors can regularly express their joint opinions on important election issues. Marion County Supervisor of Elections Wesley Wilcox, CERA is the current president of the association.
