Dear Friend,


As many look to our community as a vacation destination, we know how blessed we are to live here 365 days a year. Having been born and raised in Miami-Dade County, I know that our strength comes from the many individuals of diverse cultures and experiences who come together to make this the most vibrant location on earth.


Though we have many reasons to feel proud of where we live, we are most proud of how we live. We are hardworking, passionate, welcoming, innovative, generous, and caring. We believe in justice, equality, and the American dream.


Many who live in our community have come from places where their voices were not heard, and their vote didn’t matter. But here, they do.


That is why I established the “Protect Your Voice and Your Vote” Awareness Campaign and created my Voter Protection Task Force.



Whether you vote by mail or in person, early or on election day, every registered voter has the right to have their vote counted accurately. In the State of Florida, we have a Voter’s Bill of Rights which is included on our “Protect Your Voice and Your Vote” flyers. My Community Outreach Division team members distribute these flyers and conduct presentations throughout the County, making sure that voters are familiar with their rights.


In order to ensure that your voting experience remains free of any illegal activity or impropriety, my Voter Protection Hotline at 305-547-3300 is fully activated to receive reports of any irregularities or suspected irregularities at the early voting sites, with mail-in ballots, or on election day. My team of investigators will be available during scheduled voting hours throughout the early voting period and on election day to respond to any complaints of possible voting irregularities.


My office and I stand ready to act on behalf of every citizen to preserve the integrity of our elections. I want to assure you that I as your State Attorney, I am committed to protecting your voice, your vote, and our democracy.


Stay safe and take care.
