While state workers are passed over for the eighth year in a row, Florida’s election supervisors could be getting a raise. A bill that would do just that is ready for the Governor’s signature.

Lawmakers are moving forward with a measure aimed at helping ensure more people’s votes are counted.

At the Leon County Supervisor of Elections Office, volunteers sign up to work with the League of Women Voters.

One of the group’s core missions is to help people participate in democracy by registering them to vote.  On Wednesday, about 15 volunteers showed up to become voter registrars. One of them is Katie Pospyhalla, a college student majoring in Middle Eastern studies who said people her age don’t care enough.
