Voices and Votes: Democracy in Action

Celebrate the virtual opening of the Smithsonian Institution Museums on Main Street exhibition Voices and Votes: Democracy in America with the Florida Historic Capitol Museum and The Village Square! Join
famed political scientist Dr. Susan McManus and Miami Herald Tallahassee Bureau Chief and Harvard Neiman Fellow Mary Ellen Klas as they discuss the lessons learned from our unique state during the 2020 election cycle. Candidates and voters across Florida turned out in record numbers—what inspired them to
participate? What factors contributed to a campaign’s win? Or loss? Have the roles and influence of the media, the electorate, and political parties shifted? Together, with facilitator Keith Simmons from Florida Humanities, we’ll tackle the weighty questions and reflect on the personal ideals that drive each citizen’s participation in American democracy.
