Candidate Forums     |     Election Resources         Key Dates

Communities are stronger when locals are civically engaged. This year, Miami-Dade County residents will vote for several county commissioners.


Together in partnership with many nonprofits and friends, we will host “Our Miami: The People’s Forums” to get to know the candidates who seek to lead our region into the future. These forums will prioritize big issues facing our county this election year including transportation, affordable housing, urban development, sea level water rise, climate change, and more.


Join in and spread the word so community members can become more informed and engaged in shaping the future of Greater Miami.
