Voter Registration Deadline is Monday


The deadline to register to vote in next month’s Primary Election is Monday, July 20. The August 18th ballot will include partisan primary races for several Congressional and legislative seats as well as numerous local contests, many of which are nonpartisan.

New Florida residents and those wanting to switch their political party affiliation must also make changes by Monday.

For partisan contests, only those registered as Democrats or Republicans will be able to cast ballots.

Those affiliated with minor parties or no party affiliation can vote in non-partisan races or contests where all candidates are from the same party.

Address changes for those already registered in Florida can be handled up to the day of the election.

Statewide voter turnout during the 2018 primary election was just 27 percent.
