Today, October 5, 2020, is the last day to submit your voter registration in Florida if you wish to vote in the general election being held on November 3, 2020. You can do so online, or you can download and print out a paper voter registration so long as you drop it off at one of the county supervisor of elections locations. Today is also the last day to update your address or signature if you are already registered to vote.
To qualify to be a registered voter one must be a Florida resident, a citizen of the United States of America, be at least 18 years old, not be mentally incapacitated, and if you are a convicted felon have gone through the process to have your voting rights restored.
If you wish to see who and what issues will be on your personal ballot, you can do so via this link by entering your name and birthdate. It will show your personal sample ballot giving you time to research the candidates and proposed amendments to Florida’s state constitution. We will issue a voters guide soon, so you will enter into our search bar, the name of the candidates or the amendment, and get our coverage on that search text.
Also important, is if you have requested an absentee ballot that you mail is no later than one week prior to November 3, 2020. This will ensure your ballot is counted. You can also drop it off at one of the four Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections’ offices in the county.
