TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - The Florida Primary will be held on August 30, so new voters who wish to vote in this election must be registered by August 1.
You can register to vote either in person or by mail. You can also register to vote at a Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles office when you make any driver's license transactions.
"It is critical that all voters take the time now to update their voter information for the August 30 Florida Primary," said Pamela Goodman, President of the League of Women Voters of Florida. "The League has made it easy! Our BeReadytoVote.org has been designed as the no-spin, nonpartisan, one-stop shop for all things related to the upcoming Florida elections."
You will need to mail or take a completed Florida Voter Registration Application (Form DS-DE 39) to your local county Supervisor of Elections.
To be able to register to vote in Florida, you must: be a U.S. citizen; be a Florida resident; be at least 18 years old; have never been convicted of a felony (unless your civil rights have been restored); have never been legally judged ineligible to vote, for either mental incapacitation or crime.
"Please remember -- no matter what your party affiliation, there is something for every voter on the August ballot," said Goodman. "Be Ready!"
