Acknowledging the importance of voting this election year, the Destin Chamber has posted nonpartisan information on a new section of its website to raise awareness for Florida constituents, including data on candidates and ballot items.
DestinWins.com conveys a wide range of helpful pointers, from basics such as registration and a list of candidates on both state and Federal levels, to details on whether ballot items will include choices about Constitutional amendments.
“At a crucial time for the country, the state, and our community, we feel providing our members and community with as much information on the election as possible is a fundamental responsibility,” Chamber President and CEO Shane Moody, who emphasized the neutral position of the organization, said. “The site does not endorse any candidates. It simply provides a portal for citizens to register to vote and learn about the candidates and issues.”
Developed in tandem with the Florida Chamber of Commerce, the website will be maintained and updated on a regular basis for voters’ convenience.
“DestinWins.com continues to build on our relationship and partnership with the Florida Chamber and with other chambers across the state,” Moody said. “It’s crucial that the people of our community exercise the greatest right in the world, and that’s the right to vote freely. This site allows them to educate themselves before they go to the polls.”
