Blue Wave Coalition
Dedicated to increasing Democratic voter turnout
Welcome to Blue Wave Coalition of Miami Dade.
We’re thrilled you’re here! We are experienced, local and focused on increasing Democratic voter turnout. You are serious about your commitment and willing to put in the time and effort it takes to win an election. Let’s get to work!
Strategy for 2023 - 2024
Our goal is always to increase Democratic voter turnout by making it easier to vote in an informed way, so we elect more Democrats to office on a local, state and national level.
Each election cycle brings a new priority based on the Florida Legislature’s continuing attack on access to voting and where the biggest opportunities are. Government is making it more difficult to vote, not easier.
Our focus for this cycle:
- Signing up nonrenewed Vote by Mail Democrats
- Getting 3 petitions signed:
- Freedom for Floridians to make medical decisions without gov’t interference
- Clean Waters
- Daniella Levine Cava for a second term
What we're working on right now
WE WELCOME NEW DEMS
We welcome new Democrats through targeted postcards that welcome them and invite them to sign up for VBM, sign the three petitions and work with us.
VOTE BY MAIL/PETITIONS PROGRAM
We ask our Groups and Individuals to adopt their local precincts or districts and then we supply monthly lists of these nonrenewed VBM voters by precinct, as well as kits in a bag that include everything they need to do this by canvassing or attending an event.
During the summer months, the precinct adopter will text and call the nonrenewed VBM voters
FALL & WINTER
As weather cools we’ll start door to door canvassing of these voters to sign them up for VBM and to sign the 3 petitions
- In January, we will target races and candidates and join or create canvasses to support them.
- We will focus on voter turnout for the presidential primary, including assisting with polling locations issues on Primaries and the General Election (VBM, early voting and Election Day)
Our two biggest projects happen closer to Election Day
After the Election
We have an ardent team of ballot curers who follow up on any invalid ballots and do what it takes to get these ballots counted before the deadline, usually several days after the election. This involves getting the proper affidavits signed and delivered to the Elections Department. Sometimes this is accomplished electronically, but sometimes it requires driving to the voter’s home to get the form signed and then delivering to the Elections Department. If you would like to join in this vital effort, please email us at BWCMiamiDade@gmail.com
Our projected costs for the year is $50,000, all of which we must raise from donors who are committed to getting Democrats elected and improving the quality of life for ALL Floridians. We do not have any employees, and all of our field work is volunteer, so every dollar you donate will be put toward producing our events and creating and distributing all of the printed materials for our canvasses and mailings.

Canvass & Literature Drops
The Blue Wave Coalition of Miami-Dade is dedicated to increasing Democratic voter engagement and turnout by partnering with local groups who adopt one or more precincts and execute our BWCMD Strategic plan and providing our partners with materials and resources to ensure the election of Democrats at every level to create a better future for all Americans.
