What’s New with Redistricting Meetings and Submitted Plans?

The Florida House of Representatives’ Office of Public Information (OPI) just published their latest OPI Informer, which you can check out below.

It’s almost entirely devoted to the latest information on the Florida redistricting public input meetings, how to get involved, and the submission of redistricting proposals by Florida residents.  This two page document is a great way to quickly learn and spread the word about Florida’s redistricting process.

2012 Qualifying Week Changed to June 4-8, 2012

Note, recent changes to Florida election laws advanced the 2012 Primary Election by two weeks.  See House Bill 1355 at, page 49, lines 1369-1370.  Therefore, the Primary Election will occur August 14, 2012.

As a result, 2012 qualifying for state and federal office (state legislature, congress) is also moved up two weeks.  “Qualifying week,” as it is often referred to, will be June 4-8, 2012

We will be amending several of our public outreach documents to reflect the new qualifying week.  If you utilize any of our old presentations for the purpose of public outreach, please make sure to note the change in the qualifying week.

Qualifying for state and federal office occurs in the same week “in each year in which the Legislature apportions the state” (redistricting).  See section 99.061 (9), Florida Statutes at
