With November’s general election quickly approaching, the Florida Chamber of Commerce released its 2020 General Election Voter Guide on Thursday.
The virtual report, intended to provide a comprehensive, nonpartisan guide to Floridians heading to the polls on Nov. 3, includes valuable information, such as voting patterns and which way the district leans, on every contest — presidential, congressional, and state races — in Sunshine State.
The guide also lists endorsements made by the business advocacy group for the State Senate, State House, and select Constitutional Amendments across Florida
“The Florida Chamber goes to great lengths interviewing candidates to ensure they will advance commonsense, pro-business efforts to further economic opportunity for everyone,” said Mark Wilson, President and CEO, Florida Chamber of Commerce. “We have a long-standing focus of uniting Florida’s business community to help make Florida more competitive and we’re glad to share this guide with fellow Floridians.”

Apart from races, the guide also provides contact information for election supervisors and includes important dates and deadlines regarding voter registration and vote-by-mail ballots.
With vote-by-mail ballots being distributed in a few short weeks, voters are actively gathering information and making decisions on candidates and amendments. To date, 4,270,781 Floridians have requested a vote-by-mail ballot, a 27.5 percent increase from 2016 total requests.
“With campaigns across the state and numerous candidates up for election, it can be hard to cut through the noise and learn the facts about which candidate is right for local businesses and job growth,” added Nick Catroppo, Vice President of Political Operations, Florida Chamber of Commerce. “Our General Election Voter Guide helps simplify the process by making it clear who stands with economic growth and has earned the trust of the Florida Chamber as we continue to move Florida forward.”
