The Legislature

Getting Involved

Even though you cannot vote until you are 18 years old, you play an important role in the shaping of Florida laws. You should be learning all you can about the legislative process so that you can become an informed voter. Become knowledgeable about the issues affecting the lives of the citizens of our state and how those issues affect us even on the national level. Start by involving yourself in state-wide mock government programs such as YMCA Youth in Government, Girls or Boys State, and other such organizations. Involvement in student government programs at your school is also a good way to learn how a legislative process works.
