Early voting begins on Monday, August 13th throughout Miami Dade County. Many of our members have expressed interest in getting involved and during more. I wanted to help assist members engagement on the campaigns of candidates LCA has endorsed by centralizing campaign needs for each candidate so that information is accessible. We reached out to every endorsed candidate, some responded, some did not. For those that did not, I searched for more information on how to volunteer so that every endorsed candidate can be supported by our members who chose to assist. If folks would like to make financial contributions please reach out to the campaigns directly. Also, LCA will have comp cards available for polling sites. Please RSVP with me if you would like to volunteer and pass out LCA comp cards. Lets get busy!
