Florida has 67 counties. In 1968, Florida voters adopted a constitutional amendment that grants local voters the power to adopt charters to govern their counties. Charters are formal written documents that confer powers, duties or privileges on the county. They resemble state or federal constitutions and they must be approved by the county’s voters.
